A year ago when I spent a week with my friend Joanna, near Washington, DC, she got me hooked on Nathan's hot dogs. Somehow Nathan's taste like I remember wieners tasting when I was a child, so they've become one of my "comfort foods".
I couldn't find them in my area when I came home, and Joanna kindly had some shipped to me for my birthday last year, and then for Christmas. Believe me, I was very stingy with them. Cliff got a couple, and I may have once shared with his sister and her husband. Otherwise, I kept them in the freezer and doled them out sparingly, even to myself.
Today I found them in Price Chopper, one of the stores where I often shop! They may have been there all this time, because they're so outnumbered by the displays of Armour hot dogs, and Oscar Meyer, and all the other well-advertised brands... but now I have them any time I want them.
Some days are diamonds.
Joanna, please don't be getting me addicted to any more foods; I don't need the weight gain.
