July 2014

Each month I have more fun looking up what the month is known for.  Some are just so funny they make you laugh.  July is known for National Share a Sunset with Your Lover Month, or National Scrabble Week is 19-24 and July 6th is World Kiss Day, now that is one for you.   Most of you may know that July is National Blueberry month which is a great one and so is National Horseradish Month.  This time I’m going with National Hot Dog Month.  I have used this recipe many times for taking to people’s homes as an appetizer.  In fact just the other night we went to the Sanibel Causeway and enjoyed a sunset with friends, drinks with hot appetizers.  I brought this Hot Dog appetizer.  Hope you like it.
