It’s National Pigs-In-A-Blanket Day And Who Cares
Everyday is National 'something or other day.' Most days have several National 'something or other days.' I'm fine with that...for the most point.
And that my friends, gives me the opportunity to vent about things I think make no sense. Let's start with those pigs in a blanket. Where did it originate from? According to National Day Calendar, the creator is a mystery.
I do not care for pigs in a blanket. I do not care for green eggs and ham. Sorry about that. Mini-me hot dogs wrapped in a mini-me croissant just seems wrong. This reminds me of the scene in an episode of the sitcom 'The Office' where Kevin Malone jumps into a bed of a co-worker during a house party with a plate of pigs in a blanket. He is asked what he's doing. His reply was "I wanted to eat a pig in a blanket...in a blanket." Classic.
And here's another reason to not like pigs in a blanket - where do you pour on the ketchup? Certainly not on top of the croissant. That's not right, and you can't separate the croissant from the mini hot dog. A co-workers suggested dipping it in ketchup. Hadn't thought of that.
Yes, I put ketchup on my hot dogs. I like it that way, and I'm not gonna change. Although, my favorite type of hot dog is a chili-cheese dog topped with chopped onions. Sonic has an awesome chili-cheese dog.
I have to admit, I am not a fan of many food items wrapped completely by some sort of breading. Why? Because it's been my experience more often than not, that there's more breading than filling. If I want a small slice of meat or tiny filling engulfed by a ton of bread, I'll make it myself.
You see these things all the time in the frozen section of food stores where the picture on the box shows lots of filling, when in fact there's lots of breading and very little filling.
I suppose some people love plenty of bread surrounding than filling. Not me. Probably that's why I'm not a fan of deep dish pizza. Too much crust. Just give me a thin, greasy New York style pizza with extra cheese, and I'm a happy camper.
Speaking of camping, I'm one week away from opening season. But that's a blog for later this week, so look out.
