Sing a Slog o Dogs

Sandy at Junkfood Science has a fascinating post on nitrites and nitrates. While pointing out that Arugula has far more nitrites than commercial hot dogs or bacon, she mentions that July was National Hot Dog Month. (Also National Beer Month and National Ice Cream Month just to round out the menu). She also sends us to a mouth watering page of regional red hots.

That tickled me enough to send an e-mail to Roy. Naturally he was on top of the cultural significance of this and replied with a link to an American Museum of Natural History menu about Hot Dogs as America which played in their snack bar during their exhibit called Baseball as America.

For more on ice cream see Dum Luk's Ice Cream Post.
