Saturday was National Corndog Day!!!
I recently came across the National Corndog Day website and I was hooked! Quite simply, every once in a while I get a violent craving to have a corndog! I had my first one at the Los Angeles County Fair way (way, way) back in the early 70’s. Paired it with a cup of freshly squeezed and sweetened lemonade and I was over the moon!! (The L.A. County Fair now even has a blog called “Hot Blog On A Stick”! )
Once I found the NCD website, I checked around and found out that the largest hot dog chain in the world, Wienerschnitzel (they have great chili dogs!), was having a special: 2 corndogs for $1.00. And I missed it!
Now that I know corndogs have THEIR OWN DAY you can bet your sweet bippy I was celebratin’! It was a last-minute decision, so I didn’t get anything too fancy. Only the basics. And if you want to celebrate National Corndog Day next March, you’ll need just a few things:
You’ll need some corndogs, naturally.
some tater tots (remember, mom always says to eat your veggies and I say taters are veggies!)
and some Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer (traditional, according to the NCD website) or your beverage of choice; I chose lemonade for nostalgia (see above).
Now, you’re supposed to be watching this weekend’s college basketball while consuming all this fair fare, but I watched the Britcoms instead. The menfolk were gone, it was girls night in, and mom had the remote!
Life is good.
