Dog Days of Summer

So I realize that the "dog days of summer" are pretty much over; however, it just felt like a fitting title for this post. A few weeks ago my mom hosted a family get together where she made your classic summer fare kicked up a few notches: hot dogs.

This is an easy, fun and cheap option for entertaining. She picked up a variety of brats, hot dogs and knockwursts at here favorite meat counter, McGonigles Market.

The keys to making this meal special is great meat, buns and toppings. My mom made her own sauerkraut, relish and mustards. (sorry for the blurry picture) Sides for the meal inclue anything that makes you feel all summery inside: watermelon, pasta salad, green beans.

Happy last few days of summer to all!
