Menu Monday + Hot Dog Summer {6.21.21}

In case you weren’t aware, my husband’s favorite food is hot dogs. He could literally eat them twice a day every day and be totally happy. I thought it would be fun to turn our weekly date nights into something different for the summer so I put my own spin on a popular hashtag and came up with #HotDogSummer2021!

We’re on the hunt for the best hot dog in our area. I have a list of restaurants we want to try, both local and chain, and we’re working through them a week at a time. So far we’ve visited two restaurants!

You can follow along on Instagram – I’ve saved all the results in my highlights. If this sounds like something your family would enjoy, go for it! Maybe you don’t like hot dogs – but you could look for the best hamburger, ice cream, milk shake or something else that’s a quintessential summer food!

We also had some delicious meals at home last week. Here’s what was on the menu, including two of my new favorites from Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats ā€“ A Year of Deliciously Different Dinners. I made her baked quesadillas for my 4 year old nephews and they loved it!

On The Menu



  • Hummus & Carrots, Apples & Peanut Butter, Thin Pretzels, Cheese Cubes
  • BLT’s with Avocado and Pickled Red Onions
  • Chicken Salad: Leftover roast chicken, walnuts, craisins, celery, mayo


I hope you have a delicious week!

  1. Your hot dog tour is such a fun idea! I think my family would go for a burger tour or maybe a donut tour šŸ™‚ I am not a big hot dog eater so you’ve got me wondering if we even have that many hot dog options in the Midwest.
