We need a food thread for July 4. I’ll be the boring guy who’s just doing chili dawgs. Made hot dog chili a couple of days ago to let it sit - the super-basic not-really-chili stuff; just atomized ground beef, chili powder, ketchup (I know...), a little onion and Worcestershire sauce. Just like Mabel used to make at the drive-in. Boar’s Head natural casing dogs, and probably buns flown in from France to our local market - courtesy of my wife. So it’s fancied up a little. There will be some white American cheese, hot mustard, chopped-til-they’re-clear onions, and jalapeños as toppings. I saw a watermelon and some potato salad in the fridge too, again the wife... These kind of dawgs bloat me up and make me comatose, so I’ll be in good shape for the war zone type fireworks that will kick off about dark in my neighborhood. A couple of years ago I reported on here about one of my neighbors catching a tree on fire during his celebration. We’ll see what happens tomorrow.. Happy July 4th, everyone And whachu cookin???
