Ain't many better ways to spend $1.99
I don't shop at Food Lion very often. Indeed, I prefer to shop at Publix and my Favorite Grocery Store. Yesterday, however, I stopped at Food Lion 'cause A) I needed some throw-away plate's for my last night's pickin' party, and B)I pass a Food Lion on my way home from work.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Food Lion had Sabrett's hot dogs on sale for $1.99. Man, them things usually sell for upwards of four bucks in some grocery stores. I grabbed three packs (hey, I ain't afraid to freeze hot dogs for later eatin'), some buns, and a can of Patterson's fine Southern-made hot dog chili, which I didn't know you could buy at Food Lion.
I grilled a couple of Sabrett's tonight, grilled 'em until the outsides had a nice char on 'em. The first one I ate with some Gundelsheim kraut (which I'll tell you about sometime in the near future) ...
I ate the second dog with a healthy helping of Patterson's chili and yellow mustard. What a fine dinner, indeed. (Check the AMGE archives to find out if Sabrett's hot dogs are my favorite store-bought hot dogs ...)
