Ditch the mustard and butter the hot dog bun! Ahhhhh, much better!

I think I must be unconsciously afraid of appearing unAmerican. I spent 5 young years living in Europe and had the shit teased out of me at school when I returned.

Do you toast the hot dog bun.... that is what my dad does. I always thought it was a Boston 'thing', that's where he's from.

I'm not from Boston, but I always toast the buns too. No butter though. My father and my former FIL both buttered anything bread. Always. I just thought it was a poor farm boy thing.

Now I want a hot dog from Fuddruckers. They butter/toast the bun and it is deliciously buttery...

Oh man.... I miss eating alone.

I swear the biggest downside to living with someone is being self-conscious of my eating habits.


Keep calm and carry on.
