Spring Cleaning

I’ve been dealing with health issues for the past few months (don’t worry, I’m fine!)  Because of this, I’ve been thinking a lot of regenerating. Food is part of this.

The Perfect Veggie Hotdog

Every so often, I get cravings for street veggie dogs. I know, food from the hot dog carts are dubious enough as it is, but once in a while, I just feel like having one.
