That's What She Said

What is it about Retro WW Gals and their love of wieners? They seemingly cannot get enough of them.

With six ounces of all-beef frankfurters permitted every day if desired, I suppose it's easy to get a little wacky with all those wieners.

For example--we had the Crown Roast of Frankfurter, the Frankfurter Pie, and who can forget the awe-inspiring Frankfurter Spectacular?

We are always looking for something new to do with our wieners.

So I was thrilled when a friend gave me this rare Retro WW recipe pamphlet from 1978. This mini-cookbook is simply called "Hot Stuff", and contains some never-before seen treasured legal recipes. I could tell right away that this particular recipe pamphlet was authentic, because it has a pineapple/liver recipe handwritten on the back cover and some unidentified grease stains on the front cover. Classic.

And the best part...when I opened up this greasy little pamphlet to page 10, what did I find? A franktacular recipe for "Wiener Soup".

Wiener. Freaking. Soup.

Oh yeah. Dinner is served!

The recipe made two servings, but when I offered my husband a delicious bowl of hot Wiener Soup, he politely turned me down. I can't think why.

Hi Mimi! We happen to have about 70 hotdogs in our fridge right now, so this makes me laugh doubly hard! What are English peas? Just the thought of the pineapple/liver combo stirs up acid reflux feelings in my gut. Have you offered that entree to your husband? :D

This actually looks yummy! Perhaps it's because you served it in a cute fridgie...

Hmm...not a big hot dog fan, but I'd give it a go, and btw...LOVE your vintage pyrex. Love the title of this post too. Hilarious! Hope you are doing well Mimi!!!
