The rain in the UK is getting me down. It’s getting everyone down. We should be enjoying at least some sunshine, temperatures at around 60 and summer food – BBQ, salad, long, cool drinks. But instead it’s peeing down with rain constantly and all it’s making me do is want to eat, eat, eat – but not really cook!
So, on Sunday, I served Mr GK hotdogs and french fries! Lazy, I know. Yummy, yes. I’ve called them Hot Dog Canoes because when I put a picture on Facebook, one of my FB friends asked ‘what the hell is that’. I’m sure she could see it was a hot dog, but I guess they do look a bit odd, and yes, like canoes. Made me laugh anyway!
This was to do with two things – the size of the hotdogs (which were from a tin, 86p in Sainsbury’s!) and the ease of eating. I sort of stuck the hot dogs into a hole I cut in the bun to stop them squishing out the end, especially after covering them in mustard, ketchup and onions!
I served up the fries in a sundae dish – I think they look kind of cute! The mustard is what we lovingly refer to in this house as ‘crack mustard’. French’s all-American mustard is amazing. It’s so amazing, it’s addictive, hence our nickname. I can’t get enough of it. When we first discovered it, I wanted to put it on everything. It’s evil stuff!
Tonight, I am going to roast a chicken, put a bit of effort into things, and tomorrow I’m going to my Auntie’s for tea. Happy eating friends!
