“You’ve crushed my dreams!”

Apparently, this morning Autumn told me she wanted to butter her bagel.  I did not hear any such words.  So, I toast and butter the bagel.  “Mom, you’ve crushed my dreams!”  My only response?  “It won’t be the last time.”

Yesterday was National Hot Dog Day!  Who knew?  Who cares! (Well, Zweigles probably does..) Now when it’s National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, I will care.  Well, I don’t want to be neglectful of this national celebration, and without a dinner plan, I purchase hot dogs. And buns.  Not items on my grocery list, umm.. usually ever.   When I get home, I mention to the ol’ man that it’s National Hot Dog Day.  Ladies, you know where this is going…  He says “I got your hot dog right here!” .  With an eye roll and a stare of annoyance, “Too bad I only eat hamburgers.”

Speaking of steamy debauchery, who has seen the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer?  Trash, I tell you!  And I can’t wait to see it and it better be rated NC17!  It would have to be if it were anything like the books.  Of course, the movie will lack against the books, but I still can’t wait.  It definitely portrays an interesting view of the S&M lifestyle.  There are a lot of different sides to the lifestyle. Mostly good.  Perception is often different than reality.   😉

Squirrel…Back to hot dogs.  Gross in my opinion.  But made I them for the rascals anyway.  With these delicious little cheesy corn bites from Hungry Girl. They were delicious, with my hamburger.  I’m sure they were just as delicious with their hot dogs. Super easy.  The kids loved them.  I thought they were tasty. And only 46 calories each!!

Creamed Corn-Cheese Bites

  • 1Tbsp        Flour
  • 1/2 pkg     Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Dough Sheets (I used reduced fat crescent rolls and just rolled the triangles together)
  • 1/2C           Canned cream-style corn
  • 1/4C          Reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350*F
  2. Sprinkle flour on a dry surface, and dust the rolling pin with a little too
  3. Roll dough out, cut dough into 12 squares.  Gently press each square into a mini muffin cup, leaving corners of dough extended over edge of each cup.
  4. Spoon corn evenly into dough lined cups. Top each with cheese.  Fold the dough edges down, so they cover  the top.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are golden brown and filling is set.
  6. Let stand for 5 minutes.  Pretty important, because they are friggin’ hot.


And of course, with Hot Dogs…
