Hot Dog For Lunch At Home


My husband and I are too lazy to think of a different lunch for Sunday every week so we tend to have the same one almost all the time  – we have 2 different lunches and it’s one or the other.  My husband makes lunch for us on Sundays so he chooses one of them. Personally I would like to have something different every week but I’m much too lazy to suggest or make it.


When we think of a hot dog, we think of the one we had in Yosemite in California, where we spent a couple of weeks on our honeymoon.  I was looking forward to having a great one because I thought it was “a real thing” but what we had was steamed soggy thing, quite unpleasant.  I don’t know if steaming the bread is normal or not because I’ve never had a hot dog in the US since then.


I think usually hot dog has some onion.  Like I say, I’ve never had one in the US since and I don’t think I’ve ever had one in England but somehow I have this image that hot dogs have onion and my husband said the same.  By some reason in Japan we use cabbage.  I don’t know if this is a local thing or generation thing but the hot dogs my Mum used to make when we were little had sauteed cabbage with curry powder, so for me it needs that curry flavour.


The bread was smallish so we had one and a half each.


If we had SB curry powder it would have tasted closer to what I remember but we don’t have it and I used some Indian curry power, which is very aromatic and different from what we used to have in Japan.  Even so, this was quite a nostalgic taste.  I wish we’d bought better bread, supermarket bread isn’t very good here.  Still, we enjoyed it very much.
