Blog Carnival: The Great American Hot Dog

Did you know that July is the National Hot Dog Month? Well, it is, and the Fourth of July is a perfect time to celebrate American traditions like hot dogs, cookouts and parades.
My family goes to Bristol, Rhode Island every year to celebrate, "The Fourth," as they call it "up there" and to have some classic American cuisine (hot dogs included) and traditional New England fare as well, like "stuffies" (stuffed quahogs) and chirizo (sausage). My nephew and two nieces above (all cousins to each other) are happy to get to feast, laugh and "chill" with each other.

My daughter Molly ate her first lobster (she ate the whole thing) and appropriately followed it up with a hot dog. It doesn't get much better than that, does it?So, happy National Hot Dog Month, America. And, as they say in Bristol, Rhode Island, "Happy Fourth!"
