Creamy Sauerkraut

Looking for something a little different to top those hot dogs, sausages links or even burgers for the big game, try this if you like sauerkraut! It’s a very simple way to spice up just plain sauerkraut into a tasty addition for all types of meats. Did anyone see that Oscar Meyers has a new hot dog out? It’s the bacon hot dog, hot diggity, dog diggity, just what I’ve been waiting for, more bacon!!!!!!!!!!!! Going shopping tomorrow and it’s on the top of my grocery list. I’m not overly fond of Oscar Meyer hot dogs, but I have got to try these new treats for sure!



Cooking has not been going on too much this week and baking is totally out of the question with the weather. Yesterday morn I watched out the window like a little kid, anticipating  some snow which of course went all around us and dumped nothing on us but a chilling rain. I know some of you might think I’m crazy, but I still miss seeing the white stuff coming down from the sky! We never got above 39 degrees yesterday and today isn’t much better; last look at the thermometer, it was still hanging in at 40. I know some of you are wishing you were this warm but with the cloud cover, cold temps and a very muddy yard, I’m getting cabin fever just like when I lived up north! We did see a robin hanging out in the back yard at lunchtime and I’m afraid it’s gonna be an early hot spring and summer………

And don't forget to ask for a bacon dog!

Kraut Slaw

If you’re having hot dogs and/or hamburgers on the grill this weekend, this is a wonderful dish to serve with them. We know we’re cooking out this weekend but not sure of just what we’ll be doing as yet, but husband did mention that Kielbasa sounded good and this salad would be de-lish with that too! We were asked to head over to Panama Beach to visit with Kenny’s son and family, however, we are not ones to travel very far on holiday weekends and even hate to head to town to deal with all the last minute shoppers so with that, we’ll just stay out in the woods where it’s quiet, lay out in the hammock and enjoy some good vittles on the grill and from our kitchen!


Lazy Labor Day coming soon!

Kraut Slaw
  • 1 can (26 oz) sauerkraut, drained
  • 1 cup celery, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, grated fine
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped small (you can use a mixture of green and red for this to make it more colorful)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 1 teas celery seeds (optional)
  1. Chop up the drained sauerkraut and combine with the remaining veggies in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, combine sugar with the vinegar to dissolve and whisk in the oil; add celery seeds.
  3. Pour vinegar mixture over the veggies, cover and refrigerate several hours to meld flavors.
  4. When it's time to serve the salad, simply drain and serve either atop of the hot dogs or burgers or as a side dish.


This is also great with BBQ ribs or with some chopped ham added to it…………..enjoy and have a nice weekend!
