So, here in America, the Fourth of July holiday weekend is upon us, and what does that mean? HOT DOGS!!! :-D So today, since it's the 3rd, I thought I'd honor hot dogs as part of this weekend's time honored traditions. :) Mmmmm.... tube-shaped meat slurry.
On the Thumb, we have the traditional ketchup and mustard, the index finger is for one of my personal favorite hot dogs, even though I didn't remember to paint sauerkraut on it, it is a Yesterdog Lucy (best hot dogs ever, you West Michigan folks know what I'm talkin' about.) I guess since I forgot to paint the 'kraut, it's technically just a Cheddardog. :) The middle finger (don't read into this- I love your city!!) is the infamous Chicago dog, with radioactive green relish, sport peppers, tomatoes, onions, a pickle, mustard, and celery salt all with a hot dog in a poppyseed bun. :) For The ring finger and pinky are again, just typical hot dogs that people eat all the time. :)
As a base for all, I used American Apparel Palm Springs, with Zoya Flowie sponged lightly on top, and then American Apparel Cotton near the edge of the middle of the bun. For the hot dog, I used Orly Pink Chocolate, and for the ketchup on all that have ketchup, I used A Beautiful Life Poison, and for the mustard on all, I used American Apparel Palm Manila. For the relish, I used CND Green Scene with a few dots of ULTA Limelight on top to highlight. For the chili, I mixed A Beautiful Life Poison with Nubar Milk Chocolate Creme, then topped it with 'cheese' made of a mixture of Zoya Jancyn and American Apparel Manila. For the Chicago dog nail, I used a mixture of ULTA Limelight and American Apparel Manila for the sport peppers, American Apparel Hassid for the poppyseeds, American Apparel Cotton for the onions, ULTA Limelight for the pickle, and Essie Alligator Purse for the tomatoes.
Bon appetit! :)
