Where does Rhodia take you?

Big plans for this fall weekend?

I’m a little surprised at how quickly the weather has turned chilly here in the Northeast. It takes me back about fifteen years ago when I went on a hayride and then afterward to a party at a friend’s house. I was wearing Birketstock sandals without socks and my feet were FREEZING! My friend had a large outdoor cooking pit and I can remember roasting hot dogs on an open fire, then covering them with homemade salsa – that was the first time I had ever eaten salsa on a hot dog- (I was always a mustard on a dog rather than ketchup kind of person) and it was really good. While I haven’t eaten a regular hot dog in over three years,  there is something that still gnaws at my gut when I smell a mixture of burning leaves and grilled hot dogs… It just always reminds me of fall.

  1. It’s gotten chilly pretty quickly here in the Southeast as well. My husband and I spent the weekend half shopping for warmer clothes and half snuggled up on the couch. It was a good weekend. :)

  3. It finally turned fall here in Texas, so yesterday my godson and his dad walked along the Trinity River. My godson carried his Walking with Dinosaurs field bag, complete with Rhodia pencil, a No. 11 pad, and “field rations” (junk food). He proudly announced that the Rhodia items are now “permanent field gear.” No dinosaurs located, hence no notes or sketches in the pad, but there’s always another trip.

  5. Brad – at first, I thought the idea of putting salsa on a hot dog was pretty gross, but I trusted my friend when she said it was good and it was – at least to me. :o)

  7. I’m not sure I could go 3 years without a hot dog!

    And I’ve never had salsa and hot dogs… not sure I like the sound of that combo.
