Polka Dot Eggs - Blog Carnival 7-17

I have been considering what to write about hot dogs since it is National Hot Dog month and the theme for this installment of the Etsybloggers Team blog carnival. I thought and thought and then remember something from when my children were young. I was a single mom with two small kids and a very limited budget. At one point, we were on food stamps. I made a game out of it. I tried to shop for things so that at the end of the month I would have something left over...then we could enjoy some sort of treat! I came up with my special recipe to help stretch the grocery budget and give my children a decent meal. I created "Polka Dot Eggs"! They really aren't that difficult. Just slice up two or three hotdogs and warm them in a frying pan. Beat some eggs and add them to the pan. Cook them until done and serve with some toast with jelly. This was a quick dinner and the kids love it! Of course, Polka Dot Eggs sounded much better than scrambled eggs with hot dogs!
God bless!
