Making Local Summer Memories

One of the best things about living in a small town in upstate NY is that we can take advantage of its local charm.This summer we’ve discovered fantastic communities in our area. We've eaten at some delicious eateries, and taken in some pretty fantastic views - all without stepping foot outside our county!

We visited carnivals and fairs, ice cream shoppes and restaurants, mountain tops and lakes, and experienced it all as a family. That’s what summer is about, really. Making special memories with people you care about most. I’m lucky that Jason really enjoys doing family outings, even though he has a brutal commute every week from the city, and sometimes has to work weekends. Even then, he makes it a priority to spend time with his girls, and I love him for it. (Love ya, babe.)

So even though summer might be coming to an end soon, we still have plenty of fun ahead, including a trip to Puerto Rico and Labor Day party with friends and family! On top of that, I’ve been keeping busy trying different recipes with Hebrew National Hot Dogs. I’m not too gifted in the kitchen, so I find that simple/easy recipes work best for me. For example, I made this hot dog wrap the other day that was simply delish so I had to share! It’s perfect for the summer months because it’s light, and so easy to make. In fact, I think I might give this a whirl for our upcoming Labor Day party. Here’s what I used:

• Hebrew National Hot Dogs (1-2 for each wrap)
• Cedar’s Thin White Wraps
• Lettuce • Tomato
• Creamy Italian Dressing (or dressing of your choice)

Cook hot dogs. Cut into rounds and set aside. Shred lettuce and tomato and put in bowl. Mix dressing and hot dogs in. Spread on wrap, roll it up, and enjoy!

I mean, who knew hot dogs could be versatile, right?! That’s why I love using Hebrew National. They’re so good, and go with everything!

  1. Looks like a great summer. You're daughter is precious!

  2. Looks like a lot of great summer memories. I'm blessed with a husband who makes special time for the kids and I (and enjoys it!) despite his busy schedule. Seeing the man you love being a good dad is one of life's greatest pleasures!
