This little guys needs a home. He is a short hair teacup chihuahua and completely free! He will be a grand total of 4lbs when he is full grown and I am told he is a sweetie! One of my best friends is his foster parent at the moment, and is looking for a home for him. I have found one possibility for a future home, but no final decision yet. Let me know if you are interested!!

| Eat well, eat more! I cut out the bun so I can have more dogs and veggies with less guilt. Chicago-style dogs are my favorites, with pickles, tomatoes, onions, mustard, and slaw on top; this salad reverses the order and piles the veggies up high underneath the dogs.|
1/4 cup yellow mustard
2 tablespoons vinegar, eyeball it
1 rounded teaspoon sugar
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 of a 16-ounce sack shredded cabbage blend for slaw salads
1 romaine heart, shredded
2 vine ripe tomatoes, diced
3 large half sour or garlic pickles, chopped
Salt and pepper
8 pork or beef hot dogs, cut into 1-inch-thick slices on an angleIn the bottom of a large bowl, combine mustard, vinegar, sugar, and about 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Add the onions, cabbage, romaine, tomatoes, and pickles and toss the salad. Season with salt and pepper, adjust seasonings, and reserve.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add in remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (1 turn of the pan) then arrange the sliced dogs in a single layer. Sear them a couple of minutes on each side. Remove to paper towels to drain.
Mound up the salad on plates, top with seared dogs, and serve.
*I can't wait to make this!*

Brooke Wilen used to work with movie executives and now she knits! She started off knitting by hand and now has machines which do her work. Some of it is a little pricey for me, but the sale stuff isn't bad! My grandmother taught me to knit, and I used to know how, this makes me want to learn again. Perhaps if she remembers she should give me a refresher course!
