On my recent post featuring curled hot dogs and bow tie pasta, reader Frenchymms posted the following comment:
How exactly does one get hotdogs to curl?
I was intrigued. So Meat Galore and I experimented … if you cut the hot dog into quarters longways and then microwave it, it curls up. Now you know how to make curly hot dogs. You are very welcome.
Real Simple this month had a section on how often one should launder one’s clothes. According to Real Simple, jeans only need to be washed after every 4th to 5th wearing. I never knew I was so much dirtier than the average person – because if I didn’t wash my pants any more often than that, they could probably stand on their own. Have you ever wondered if Martha Stewart is some kind of ghost writer for Real Simple?
I read other people’s blogs for a few reasons: they make me laugh, they inspire me with craft ideas, or I like to spy on them from the comfort of my own home. Therefore, I find it very frustrating when a blog I read to satisfy my voyeuristic tendencies has a post to the effect of, “I’m going through a lot of stuff right now,” and then doesn’t say what all the stuff is. It should be against the law to say that if you aren’t going to elaborate!
I’m going to put “how to curl hot dogs” in the tag for this post. I anxiously await to see if anyone ever Googles that.
