Hot Dog Extravaganza!
Ours doesn't, and it is a constant source of frustration.
Go ahead. Blame my disorganization, or the size of our family, or that I go grocery shopping too often (or not often enough). Or like my husband, you can blame the refrigerator itself.
Me? I blame my family's love affair with condiments.
I thought about taking a picture of the condiments on the table during our recent Labor Day Weekend Hot Dog Extravaganza, but it was pretty embarrassing. You'll just have to imagine what it looked like to give us the end results pictured below.
We started out well enough.
My daughter is a no-frills kind of hot dog eater. Meat. Bun. 'Nuff said.
And then one of her brothers chose the ketchup (catsup?) route for one of his dogs.
Here is his other one. Chili, cheese and horseradish. Mmm...
My husband was traditional. He chose mustard, relish and onions for one dog, and chili for the other. Again, Mmmm....
But now we get to the real condiment hounds. My oldest and youngest sons LOVE things like this -
And this (notice the quart size jars!) -
And here is what they ended up with -
I'd say we're probably out of control.
I think we've come up with a new reality show idea, though: Refrigerator Horders!
Wait, what? I didn't share a picture of my hot dog?
I eat mine with coleslaw and onions. The best hot dog ever!
What is your favorite way to dress your dogs?
