The Hot Dog!
I went to Walmart today, on Memorial Day, to do some grocery shopping. I didn't really expect it to be as busy as it was. Everyone that doesn't have a picnic to go to (like me), was at Walmart. I got everything on my list, with hardly any extras when I saw the Amish potato salad. I haven't had potato salad since last year so I thought I'd get me some and have my own little picnic. Just me and Rocky. So off I went back down the aisles of the Super Walmart to get me some hot dogs and buns. Since I don't really hardly ever eat red meat, I was looking for some turkey or chicken hotdogs. The turkey hot dogs also had pork in them and all I can think of when I think of eating pork is those poor pigs stuffed in those tiny cages. So nope, none of those. OK, I found chicken hot dogs. I turned over the package to read, (always a mistake), and it said Ingredients . . Chicken (mechanically separated)!!!! What?? What does that mean?? All sorts of horrible pictures went through my mind. Well, I figured I'd just bite the bullet (excuse the terminology!) and go with Hebrew National Beef Hot Dogs. I don't know if they are better as far as processing but I'm just going to think they are.
Well Rocky and I had our little picnic. One of those hot dogs were his. The picnic was complete with flying insects, one ant and a breeze that made the food cold!
I think that's my last hot dog for awhile.
I wondered all evening about when I get chickens to raise . . . will I then not be able to eat chicken??? I can see that happening!
