Hot dog ion

It’s that distinct snap and smooth texture, salty but not overpowering taste that makes these dogs so very good. Thanks to Independence Day in the States, and the corresponding barbecues and propaganda, I always associate hot dogs with freedom. So, when all my dear South African friends go off to celebrate your freedom to vote tomorrow, I will be thinking of this delicious hot dog served with German mustard and sauerkraut.
