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.
