Some days, the only thing that will stop the drama of the day from following you in the front door is a fried weenie sandwich, Aunt Blanche style.
That is to say, one hot dog – split to enable folding the still attached halves open – one white bread Wonder hamburger bun, and one slice of processed American cheese food product.
Grill the weenie split side down on a cast eye-ron griddle till heated through. Cut the weenie in half so it fits on the bun. Assemble yer sandwich (with a touch of mayo and moo-stard) and then toast it just like a grilled cheese on yer cast eye-ron griddle.
Aunt Blanche’s special touch was always the accidental ashes off the end of her Merit 120. I say you can hold the ashes but there is something to be said for their nostalgic taste.
Makes the worst of days a little more bearable, it does.
