I love a good Chicago Dog.
Give me an all-beef dog with my tomato wedges, mustard, chopped onion, pickle, peppers, relish and a dash of celery salt. And most importantly, no ketchup!
I could eat one every day.
I kid you not.

In fact, every year when I go visit the 'rents,
I pick myself up some fabulously neon green relish that I can only find in select stores in the Chicago area.

And so when my small-handed friend informed me she had never had a Chicago Dog...
Well, we had to get one (or two)!
Normally I'd take a fresh face to Hot Dougs, but we were super close to Superdawgs...
(For those of you going to Summer CHA, Superdawgs isn't too far away.. and it's fabulous)

And so here's the layout depicting our trip.
Cased the layout from KP (will have to dig up the original)
I really would like to go back now...
Or make the husband go out and grill me a dog.

I actually really like all sorts of hot dogs...
Just ask my husband.
I asked to go on a date outside Home Depot once because there was a fabulous hot dog man there.
(With some fabby red onion sauce... Oh yum!)
For the record, my husband is not a handy guy who likes Home Depot...
Ah, for the love of hot dogs!

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm enjoying all your layouts, Belinda. You are on a roll! Maybe even a hot dog roll! What a cute page.

Another wonderful layout. I love your scrapping style as much as I love(d) your stamping style.

I guess that means that I love your style. *grin*

However, I never, ever thought I'd see a layout about hot dogs. Ever. Even if Chicago-style dogs are the best and are the only reason I ever bought celery salt.

Chi-town has such great food!

Next I want to see a layout about stuffed pizza. OK?
