Hot dogs, chips, and salsa at home


That’s my favorite salsa…  it’s Mrs. Renfro’s Mango Habenero salsa.  It’s really spicy, and a bit sweet.

The potato chips are the yellow “Santitias” chips.   Santitas are the generic chips that are made by Frito Lay.  One of my friends from college used to tell mem about them.  (He was a chemical engineer that used to work on the “baked” formulas at Frito Lay.)

The Hot Dogs are Ball Park, the “singles”, which I find are pretty convenient for “the single guy.”  Throw them in the microwave, wrap them in a paper towel, and heat them for 30 seconds, and you’re done.

Though, sometimes they explode.  That made me start thinking about the old Ball Park Franks expression–“they plump when you cook ’em.”   I wondered if their marketing department ever thought that this may be a negative unintended consequence of the marketing line. 

“Yeah, ball parks…  They’re great and all, but they plump when you cook them…”  :-/

These are the kind of thoughts that kept me out of the really good schools…
