Tots

Spring, yo! Totally in full effect. I seriously ignored it, completely let it pass me by, until yesterday when I saw a lady walking down Santa Monica Blvd sporting a very cute set of bunny ears on the top of her head. And then, it hit me: Spring has totally sprung–it’s here! What now?!

So, I came to the (short) conclusion than what better way to embrace it than by making something that’s more resemblant of Summer. Forget Spring! (This is me attempting to be ahead of the curve, I think.) Actually, no. That’s incorrect. I think it more has to do with the fact that yesterday it was a near 80 degrees outside and I was sweating.

When I experience both of those things simultaneously, my brain immediately travels to yards where hot dogs are being grilled and people are littered everywhere drinking beer and sprinklers are going off and some random dude thinking it’s a good idea to run through them.

I did exactly none of those things yesterday. Womp womp. My way of dealing with the overcompensating weather was to make something that I would love to eat on those type of days: Corn Dogs Tots!!

There’s this game…not sure if you’ve heard of it…but it seriously is all consuming. Like, it swallows people for like 4 months out of the year. They join fantasy leagues. (We’ll get back to that in a second…) They scream at the television. Become depressed if their teams loses. Wear pieces of cheese on their heads. Stand in negative 30-degree temperatures…

It’s called football. You’re familiar with this, right?!

And fantasy leagues…really, boyz?! Really?! When I finally had the mental energy to pay attention to the explanation I got one of my dude friends, I was totally disappointed. I mean, statistics…off of how players play. UGH! Snoozefest, USA.

I do like boyz, though. And boyz like football so I guess by proxy I like football, too.

And I dig football food, obvi. Wings and celery and cheese sticks and nacho cheese and chips and snacks!! I can get down.

Enter…pretzel tots…
