On that day we were all convinced by the smell, the size, and by our eyes to buy a hot dog… a famous fully loaded hot dog with homemade mustard, bbq sauce, cranberry relish, chili, and onions.

It was the biggest and messiest hot dog I have ever seen.

 Everyone glanced our direction as they walked by and stared at our messiness.  It was impossible to take a bite and not get something on your face or tumbling down your clothes.  It clearly should have come with a bib and wipes.


And I am proud to say I ate the entire hot dog….but then I felt sick.

I loved Grandma’s red sauce because she made it smooth.  Unlike my mom who made it chunky… which absolutely ruined the most amazing invention, recipe ever…spaghetti.  Tomato chunks in any meal made my lips curl down and a gagging sensation begin in my throat.

But did you know that our taste buds change…at least that is what I was told. And I am for one gullible and two living proof.

Because who would have ever thought that I would love chunky sauce, chunky salsa, chunks in my salad, chunks in my soup… and I mean chunks. I would have never eaten this appetizer…

 

That’s right, Bruschetta layered on a thick piece of Paesano.

 

Dear Mom,  Just please don’t make meatloaf when I visit…I don’t think that will ever change.

Ingredients:
3 tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced

We walked barefoot, jumping, and tip-toeing our way out to the peninsula.  Tiny crabs scooted out from beneath and snails were found in every which way attached to the rocks. We climbed and walked for hours constantly stumbling upon nooks and crannies where life grew. It was a good day to do nothing but explore.
