[FHCx210] National Chili Dog Day/National Milk Chocolate Day

Chocolate chili, anybody?

IT’S NATIONAL MILK CHOCOLATE DAY AND NATIONAL CHILI DOG DAY!

Chocolate is chocolate. Purists will dismiss things like milk chocolate and white chocolate. But in reality, milk chocolate isn’t all that bad! We got some chocolate from Choco Love. Pretty good stuff!

Today is also Chili Dog Day. There are a few restaurants in the Twin Cities that do amazing dogs: Chris and Rob’s, The Wienery, and Prairie Dogs. Prairie Dogs, especially, is known for making some badass chili – you can tell they’re good on it because they serve chili cheese fries. So we made the trip down to uptown (which is south of downtown) to get our dog on. And it was absolutely amazing. You need to go to Prairie Dogs immediately.

The “Split Open and Melt” – Chili, Hook’s cheddar spread, mustard, and raw onions. Chili Cheese Fries on the side. Messy. Delicious.

Not a chili dog. The “Pliny the Elder” – Duck fat fried hot dog, foie gras torchon, and currant apple relish. Also messy. Also delicious.

The chili is just what you need for a dog. Super meaty. No beans. A little kick and very, very, very saucy. Gets everywhere. We will dream of these dogs tonight.

Tomorrow is National Chicken Wing Day and National Lasagna Day!
