Use What You Got

What kind of a meal do we have when we get home at 6:45 and realize we never thought about what to make before then and it’s like a million degrees outside so you don’t want to turn on your stove?

Yep, that is sliced hot dog on a hambuger bun. It’s what we had in the fridge. 

We had the corn too, and it was probably about a day or two from going bad, so yay us for eating it in time.

We have a great way of grilling it. Take the cob out of the husk and wrap it in tin foil with a pat of butter and an ice cube.
Grill it up and it comes out super moist and flavorful. We add salt and pepper and call it a day.

Only a few days later, we found ourselves in a similar predicament – lazy, and needing to use up what’s in the fridge. This time, we went with pizza bagels.
I should note we had pizza bagels that day for both lunch and dinner. Not sure if that makes it better or worse.

Have you ever had a weird quick meal, like these?

  1. We most certainly have. A hot dog on a hamburger bun is very common. We’ve also cut the hot dogs up and mixed them in with pork and beans when we had NO buns. We had to use a slice of buttered bread on the side. What hard working people don’t have to punt once in a while??? You’re doing a good job! 🙂

  2. Thanks, Cindy! I have to say, the sliced hot dog idea was all Dan’s. He must have gotten it from you guys. Thanks!
