ON THE BACK BURNER

April 28

My grandson brought me some veggies, ready to be planted. Romaine and Bibb lettuce. They look so cute ,standing in two rows in my garden. I am waiting to plant cucumbers and dill. Then it will be pickle time. Last year, I found the perfect recipe that tastes just like Bubbe's Pickles, which sell for $10 a jar here iN PT.  That is an obscene price for a jar of pickles. Today , my son and I went for Chicago hot dogs. I treat him to lunch when I need a refill on my propane tanks. He has to lift them off of their stand and then put them back on. Lunch is part of the deal. Two days in a row, I have eaten Chicago style food. The Chicago hot dog has no ketchup. It is the beef hot dog,onion,tomato, pickle, cucumber and that green, green relish and mustard. Yellow mustard.Sometimes , if it is really special, you get celery salt. Even the price of these hot dogs has gone up. Yesterday, our two  Italian beef sandwiches, one order of fries, a beer on tap and a Coke, cost $50, not including tip. The hot dogs were  $5.75 a dog. That's a lot of money for an Italian beef and a hot dog. Even  if they taste like home.
