Thank you for joining me and making my Free Mystery quilt, Vacation Time! July brings in block 7.
I am having a bit of fun with this one and named it 'The Hot Dog Stand' to celebrate one of summer's fun BBQ items!

In July there are a lot of picnics, trips to the beach, the lake and carnivals! I bet you and your family have favorite items you love to eat when you go on to certain places. Nothing like looking forward to that ONE time that makes the memories happen! Maybe you have a favorite Hot Dog Stand at the Carnival, or always get a grilled brat at the lake.

From back yard grilling, to scouts, to finding a fun Hot Dog stand on one of my cruises, I do like to have a hot dog in the summer.

Inspiration from Summer Days & Yummy Hot Dogs

I believe a lot of us have had hotdogs as kids at fun family outings, or maybe you had them in scouts. When I lived in Germany our girl scouts had a week long camp each summer. One thing I remember most was that we got to put a hot dog on a stick and grill.. or maybe burn it...over a campfire. I think those may have been the best ones ever!

Being in Germany we tended to get all types of wurst instead of hotdogs, but on the ones we grilled on a stick came right from the base PX! Germany also has lots of wurst stands, we loved stopping for a snack. In German these are called an 'Imbiss' stand. I saw these way before the food truck phase!

Where do you get your summer hotdogs? At the carnival? Or maybe it's a tradition at the ball game? Or Maybe someplace like a city hotdog truck found in my home town of Washington DC!

Watch my video to learn how I like to eat my hotdogs, I might have a way you've not heard! Tell me how you take your hotdogs, or what your favorite item to grill is in the comments below, I'd love to know!
