3 Most Delicious Hot Dogs in the World … Oh Yeah!

Originally called frankfurters, their origin can be traced back to 1852 in Frankfurt, Germany. From the start, frankfurters were basically small sausages.

GERMAN STYLE

Today, some are made entirely of one type of meat, such as beef, pork, chicken, or turkey. There are even vegetarian hot dogs that contain no meat at all. Many hot dogs, however, are more like traditional sausages, because they are made from a secret recipe containing a mixture of a variety of ingredients.

NEW YORK STYLE

Although there are as many special recipes out there, most of them consist of a similar set of ingredients. These include meat, meat fat, filler (such as flour or bread crumbs), egg whites, and spices. Some popular spices include salt, pepper, onion, and garlic.

FryDay Delicious Messy Fun Food: Waffles With Chicken And Cheese – Have A Great Weekend!

Okay, nobody said that this was going to be a food healthy post. If you exercise during the week, burn a ton of calories, and you have your cholesterol and triglycerides within perfect normal limits, once a week you can treat yourself with something like this. I know I do. Otherwise, I would get bored of eating healthy food 365 days a year. But that is me. I have a friend that no way Jose would eat this food, ever, ever never, hahaha. I will eat my waffles and she will be eating carrots and celery. She doesn’t exercise though, not at all. She is vegan and lacking some vitamins and minerals in her last full check-up.

It is South American native but you can grow it in your back yard from seed or a small plant bought in a nursery in your area.

Tamarillo Juice…Yummy!

It is a small-growing shrub or semi-woody tree reaching heights between 10-18 feet (3-5.5 mts.).

Tamarillo trees bloom in early spring, producing fragrant pink flowers. These blooms will eventually give way to small, oval or egg-shaped fruit, reminiscent of plum tomatoes—hence the tomato tree’s name.

  • 1 13 oz can Coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Thai red curry paste
  • 4 cups Vegetable or chicken broth

  • 3 1/2 oz Rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1/2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Neutral cooking oil 

INSTRUCTIONS

thai curry soup cooking eating healthy vegetables dr martha castro noriega mexico
  • Prepare the vegetables for the soup and garnishes first, so they’re ready to go when needed. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger using a small-holed cheese grater. Peel and dice the sweet potato into one-inch cubes. Wash the bok choy well, then chop into one-inch strips, separating the fibrous stalks from the delicate green ends. Thinly slice the red onion and roughly chop the cilantro.
  • Add the cooking oil to a large soup pot along with the minced garlic, grated ginger, and Thai red curry paste. SautĂ© the garlic, ginger, and curry paste over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the diced sweet potato and chopped bok choy stalks to the pot (save the leafy green ends for later) along with the chicken or vegetable broth. Bring the pot to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 5-7 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  • While the soup is simmering, bring a small pot of water to a boil for the vermicelli. Once boiling, add the vermicelli and boil for 2-3 minutes, or just until tender. Drain the rice noodles in a colander and set aside.
  • Once the sweet potatoes are tender, add the coconut milk, fish sauce, and brown sugar to the soup. Stir, taste, and adjust the fish sauce or brown sugar if needed. Finally, add the bok choy greens and let them wilt in the hot soup.
  • To serve, divide the rice vermicelli among four bowls. Ladle the soup and vegetables over the noodles, then top with red onion, cilantro, a wedge or two of lime, and a drizzle of sriracha.
