The DIY Dinner You Need Now More Than Ever

When we think of appreciating the pace, nostalgia definitely kicks in. It wasn’t that long ago that the whole word was smart-phone-less. Isn’t that crazy? Life naturally moved slower because you could only be where you were. 

Visions of perfect summer days at the local park or a community center are the epitome of nostalgia for us - the sound of laughing children, the soft roar from a group of excited (possibly over-enthusiastic) parents erupting from a far-away bleacher, the scent of outdoor grilling drifting through the air on an early Sunday evening as you cruise around on your hand-me-down bike with a gang of friends in tow. This Americana memory is made only better by the effortless but nourishing meal enjoyed by all at the end of the day - a classic burger and dog cookout.

For this reason - for these feel good memories - we thought it was time to make dinner fun again. No matter where you’re at or who you’re with, ready for this……..?

A hot dog bar is exactly what you need. It’s fun, it’s flexible, it’s nostalgic, easy, and hearty (if you’re choosing Cotton Cattle’s Beef and Pork Jumbo Hot Dogs). These hot dogs are not your ordinary weiner, they are a blend of 100% Natural Grass Fed Beef and our heritage pork. They are uncured with no nitrates. 

The jumbo dogs come 3 in a pack, ship frozen and will arrive frozen (or partially thawed). They’re ready to eat in no time and the hot dog bar allows everyone involved to enjoy this classic treat their way - keep it simple for the kids and go gourmet for the adults.
