Lazy day

Thursday, August 2, 2012

I haven't really felt like doing much today. I have a friend who works at a chemical lab I'm trying to get a job at and one of the lab supervisors was supposed to call me today, yet it's 3pm and I still haven't heard from him... oh well. 

I know dinner is like a task in my family. We eat the same things over and over again with little variation. Mostly because my mom is allergic to gluten and soy so there isn't much variation we can have. But I ran across this recipe for a variation of hot dogs. So take that family favorite grill item into the kitchen and give this a try.

My family tried this recipe tonight. We substituted the sour cream for Philadelphia Creamy Pesto cooking creme since we have a picky family member who doesn't like sour cream. I would definitely recommend it!

#2 Fancy Hot Dogs

You'll need:
1 Tbsp butter (more if needed)
6 standard sized hot dogs (plan 1-2 per person, or fewer if you are serving kids), sliced into 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick slices
1 cup chopped yellow onion
2/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup of water
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)

1. Melt butter in a large skillet (cast iron works well for this purpose) on medium high heat. Add the chopped onions and sliced hot dogs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions and the hot dogs are nicely browned, 5-10 minutes.

2. Add the sour cream and water, stir until creamy. Heat until steamy.
Serve with cooked egg noodles, elbow macaroni, or favorite pasta. Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley.
Serves 4.
