Red Hot Chicago Dog

Happy Independence Day from the Windy City! Hope that your day is filled with freedom, family, friends, fireworks, and good ole American favorites.

Since I'm here for the holiday, I figured it was only appropriate to sample a classic: the Chicago dog. This local specialty is practically dragged through the garden. Its an all-beef hot dog served on a poppy seed bun and topped with yellow mustard, onions, sweet pickle relish, tomato slices, pickled sport peppers, a pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt. And it's pretty amazing.

p.s. I'd like to wish a very happy first birthday to the adorable Edward James Beaumont! Wish I could be there to celebrate.
