Corndog Goodness

Saturday night was the Final Four in college basketball. I'm sure you can all imagine how much i care about college basketball, especially since neither Maryland or Ohio made it that far this year. However, UNC did make it. And when 2 of your friends live in Chapel Hill cause one of them is a professor at UNC and they happen to be in town, you're watching college basketball. Mel and Mike were at their party during the day on Saturday, but they were coming back to the Palmateer's in time for the game so i went over around 6ish. We aren't going to talk about the pathetic travesty that was the Kansas/ UNC game; Mike might start crying just reading this. Instead we are going to talk about the portion of the evening that wasn't a bitter disappointment - the food. There is a corndog recipe that Jason loves, loves, loves that Kate will only make for special occasions. This qualifies. Whatcha doing Kate? Cooking. Whatcha doing Jason? Waiting. The recipe is from Rachel Ray, who might be close to the most annoying person on the planet, but she does have some good recipes. It is oven-baked making it much easier to cook and lower in fat. We were told that it was sorta spicy, kinda like a corn chili dog; what we weren't told is that they were HUGE! Look at those momba-jombie things! They were more like spicy corn loaves with a tasty dog center. Wow. I appreciate the stick, but they had to be eaten with a fork. YUM!

I think you've been spammed here in the comments, Niki.

Got it, Kaaren. Thanks!

Steph - I used to watch her show $40 a day with the sound turned down - i loved to see where she was going and what she was eating, but i didn't want to hear her.
