    Good luck on your swim tomorrow! I’m sure you’ll totally rock it! :mrgreen:

    Love the carrot dog idea. I’m totally grilling up some carrots this weekend and trying it out.

    I watched the movie the other day, and the book is MUCH better.
    Good luck on the swim, you will rock it!

    I actually read the book and loved it! Still curious as to if the movie does it justice!

    Good luck on your swim! That carrot dog looks amazing – especially with the almond butter.

    The book is REALLY GOOD! Better than the movie! πŸ™‚ I have to admit I don’t think I would try your carrot dog. πŸ™‚ Sorry!

    I can’t do nut butter and veggies. Just too strange for me yet.

    The book is way better than the movie but the movie is wonderful.

    I watched The Lovely Bones today, too. I liked it a lot! My to-read list is already way too long, so I doubt I’ll read the book. Carrot dog… never thought of that but think I might like it. πŸ™‚

    I honestly couldn’t get into the book. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I am an avid “read the book and watch the movie” person. good luck with your swim tomorrow! πŸ™‚

    The book was one of the best I’ve ever read. You should give it a try.

    I am actually watching the movie as I type this and I am really enjoying it, but I am not sure if I would read it either!!

    Heheeh! you really do put nut better on everything! If you find something you love, stick with it!

    Movies like lovely bones intrigue me, but I can’t watch anything that freaky so I never follow up on my interest! Good luck on the swim!

    You HAVE to read the book. You just do. No ifs, ands, or buts! I rented the movie tonight and will hopefully watch it tomorrow.
    And, carrot dog? You should name your blog “cook outside the box.”

    Um… I hate to say this but my bf saw this post over my shoulder and said “what is wrong with these people?!” but he is a typical guy–obsessed with hot dogs. I’d try this concoction. πŸ˜‰

    I love love love it! This is the cutest little meal I’ve ever seen, I’ll have to buy some hot dog buns just so I can eat it πŸ™‚

    What about sweet potatoes, slightly mashed, with peanut butter in a hot dog. yumm!!! Sweet potatoes are amazing and peanut butter goes with everything!

    The book is amazing but so is the movie which usually isn’t the case.

    You really crack me up with your inventive dinners!

    I only read the book Lovely Bones and heard the movie wasn’t as good, but I might still check it out to see.

    I have to say, I love hot dogs, but the carrot just doesn’t look yummy lol!

    Cute idea for a carrot in a hot dog bun!

    I read the book and adored it…I have re-read it many times through the years and I am not one for light fiction reading…I mostly stick to nonfiction, bios, Russian authors (think Dostoevsky, Checkhov, Nabokov, Solzhenitsyn, Tolstoy) or expatriates (think Hemingway, Faulkner, Stein, Fitzgerald) so I was surprised to find myself actually bawling reading this book! I had to set it down a few times and pick it back up to re-read because it’s really well-written πŸ™‚ Hope the movie is good, too!

    Wow what a great idea, I can not wait to try it out myself. Hope you rock that swim πŸ™‚

    I honestly did not enjoy the book!!! I didn’t go see the movie because I was pretty annoyed by the time I finished the book – just one person’s opinion:) interesting idea on the carrot dog!

    i liked the movie but there was WAAAAAAY too much CG going on, like to the point of ridiculousness and stupidity.

    Bunny on a bun! A restaurant in Charleston (Mount Pleasant) that was featured on Diners Drive Ins and Dives, makes this (http://itzyskitchen.blogspot.com/2010/03/my-triple-d-experience-jacks-cosmic.html)…of course they’ve never used nut butter (which I bet makes it incredible. Hope you have a good weekend Meghann
