Hot Dogs: It's what's NOT for dinner!

Today I was at my in-law's house watching their mondo-amazing hd tv (with hd cable if you must know...) and was happy to catch one of my all time favorite shows from the days when WE actually had cable--How It's Made. Love it! Anyways, they were showing how hot dogs were made--and it's not like I eat hot dogs all the time--but I will eat them occasionally or cook them once in a while for A (Hoffman hotdogs my NY'ers?!!) but NEVER AGAIN! If you could see what that stuff looked like before it became a hot dog you would die. Literally. Ugh, misc. meat leftovers, lots of water, corn syrup, grinding machines, weird vats and mixers--I really thought I was going to lose it when they focused in on the MEAT PASTE used to form the hot dogs. Oy and Disgusto! Do yourself a favor, if you plan to eat hotdogs in the future don't watch the program featuring them! AHHHHHHH!
