I'm not proud of it, but I serve my kids hot dogs at least twice a week. It's a necessary sacrifice in a busy world. They are protein tubes, a processed, uniform, convenient ration you defrost, heat up with a starch and there you go, a meal on a busy night.
I only serve kosher hot dogs, at any rate. My brother in law is a rabbinical student and slaughterer for the subcontracter that procures rabbis for Hebrew National. He sees about 400, er, clients a day. So we tell the kid's they are Uncle Yishay's hot dogs. Drop those babies in a microwave, straight from the freezer, and Bob's yer uncle. I serve it with carrot and celery sticks, maybe sliced cucumber, but they could care less.
