Patty’s Ponderings-Fishdogs?!

Multiple hot dogs

There’s nothing like feeling under-the-weather to turn a person into a compete “tv turnip”. I spent the majority of the weekend keeping the Kleenex company in business. When I wasn’t drinking hot tea, napping or rubbing moisturizer into my sore nose, I was staring glassy-eyed at the tube.

Yesterday, I watched hours of the Travel Channel’s food shows. One episode featured hot dogs in every aberrant incarnation you can imagine. One stood out to me as being particularly weird, which is truly saying something, because, please believe me when I tell you, that I have consumed some very strange foods.

This was a wiener coated with a mixture of ground salt-cod and mashed potato flakes held together with I know not what else. If you’re of Italian or Mediterranean descent, you know that salt-cod is a smelly, dried, salty version of codfish which is often soaked in water for days to lessen its salt content and rehydrate it for use in soups, salads and other dishes.

This grotesque creation was then deep fried until the coating was a lovely golden brown, put in a bun and slathered with some sort of homemade relish, containing God knows what! The patrons of this restaurant all sang its praises, noshing it like something from a 5-star restaurant. “Oh I know, hot dogs & fish–weird right? But somehow it all works together!” said one energetic fishdog eater.

It was at this point that I got out of my chair, squirted more Vicks Sinex up my nose and took another nap.
