Late Summer Events and Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Hot Dogs

It's almost the end of August and that means a lot of things around THG HQ. First off, today marks the end of our extended semi-vacation as the wife returns to work after 3 months off with the baby and me. Second, the US Open tennis tournament – my favorite of all tourneys – starts later today with first round coverage beginning at 11 AM. Third, the MD State Fair is in full swing and we plan to get over there and sample some of the culinary delights – ie, food on a stick – that state fairs bring out. And, finally, Labor Day is just around the corner, which means it's time to break out those great summer barbecue/cookout recipes at least one more time.

This summer I've been doing more hot dogs and sausage on the grill, and even made some great Jalapeno and Chicken Sausages that I bought at Wegmans the other day. I meant to write it down before I opened the package but I forgot to and now I can't remember the brand. They cooked up great on the grill, just 5 minutes per side over a medium flame.

But when I opened my e-mail box this morning there was a great sounding recipe from Simply Recipes that popped up: Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Stuffed Hot Dogs. Damn, that sounds really good and I may have a hard time not making those this weekend.

I ALMOST got hungry about this. You have to understand that it's hard for me to get hungry right now, especially about hot dogs. I ate 16 of them at a baseball game yesterday. My body hates me now.

16 ballpark dogs?! I hope this was a quantity contest and not a speed contest. Good gawd man!
