Hot Diggity Dog

Doing my best to feed our family well, I swore off hot dogs about two years ago. Certainly we eat them when offered, but we no longer buy them. They used to be a staple in this house.

Sensing my lack of lunch creativity, the kids broke me down in a weak moment and convinced me to buy hot dogs. "Pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaassssssssssseeeeeeeeee...." How can I refuse this x 7?

Well, they devoured them. Joseph, chewing with his eyes closed like he was savoring a steak or something, asked, "Is this dog? I love the taste of dog."

That night Sean brought home leftovers from a school luncheon for the teachers. You guessed it. We've been eating A LOT of hot dogs.


Go over to Mary's for Tiny Talk Tuesday and read what funny things kids are saying. I promise you'll smile.

That's so funny, and that picture is the best!!! We have the same hotdog rule too (which is a bummer since I like hotdogs :) ) However, it's usually the "fake" mac and cheese that I have to resist their pleadings for. :)

Oh, that is too funny! I am sure you just crack up all the time at that boy. We buy all beef hotdogs and it makes me feel better! :)

I'm with you on the hot dog consumption business but am brow beat into buying them probably once every couple months. My kids walk through the grocery store picking up boxes of Twinkies, mac 'n cheese, and Lucky Charms, hold them longingly, and croon, "Why, oh why can't we eat you?" I told them when they can pronounce every ingredient and describe to me exactly how they fit into the category of food, I'd fork over the cash.

OK...that picture is so funny! HAHAHAHA it suits this post so well.

My kids like dog too...

I love the picture in my mind of your 7 children gobbling down on hot dog.

Ewwwwwww! I hate hot dogs. Hated them since learning what was in them in grade school. That said, I will let my kids eat them when we are out. I'm such a hypocrite like that! ;)

That is too funny! I had also stopped buying them and also suddenly gave in recently (bonfires call for hot dogs, what can I say?!)
My kids were deliriously happy! They feel the same way about KD...weird!

He loves dog ha ha ha!

"I love dog." That is still making me laugh. I can barely write this for laughing, Monica! Hey, I just posted a birthday picture of the girls on my blog. I hope you don't mind!

Is this a dog? I love dogs!

My word that's hilarious.

We're having hot dogs for dinner tonight. I was wondering what to make. Your post just sealed the deal! I love a good hot dog. Just love it. When I'm pregnant just try to pry me away from the dogs at the snack counter at walmart. Eeewww. I know.
