hot diggity dog

Since July is National Hot Dog Month the following facts are note- worthy ---- 30 billion (with a B) dogs are eaten every year ???
Emily Post says you can start from either end when eating a hot dog. Left or right it makes no difference. You can even have one in each hand. How about that !!!!!!
And, since I stumbled onto this recipe for Coney Island Sauce I shall pass it on--------
1/4 # ground round
1 1/2 cups water
1) 6 oz can tomato paste
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
2 tablespoons chili powder (more if you want---it's up to you)
1 tablespoon each--chopped onion,prepared mustard, worcestershire sauce, salt, sugar.
Cook meat in large skillet over medium heat until browned---stir it up to crumble it------drain. Add the water and the rest of the stuff, stir well -----bring to a boil------reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes ( that's half an hour in New York ) stirring occasionally.
Put that on your dog and hot diggity, it's delicious. Hey don't forget to cook the dog (NO, not that dog) and hold the whole thing together with a roll. A winner every time.
