The Ultimate Carrot Dog

by Meghann on April 23, 2010

This afternoon an idea sprung into my head for a meal that was so good it automatically had me thinking “I can not wait to blog about this!” before I even took the first bite.

Let me introduce to you the very blog worthy Carrot Dog. ๐Ÿ™‚


Hot Dog Bun + Spinach + Grilled Carrot + Almond Butter = The Ultimate Carrot Dog


This wasn’t just fun to look at – it was fun to eat too. ๐Ÿ™‚   


I know the concept of using a carrot in lieu of a hot dog may not be a highly original one, but I like to think the almond butter topping gives it a fun twist. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh and it was good. Damn good in fact! I hope to one day feed this combo to my future kids.

The buns I used this evening were a recent addition to my freezer.


I found the sprouted hot dog buns in the freezer section at my local Publix and found them quite tasty. After a quick defrost the sprouted buns were really grainy and chewy. I look forward to eating them again. ๐Ÿ™‚


It wouldn’t be a true ‘hot dog’ of a meal unless there were some fries on the side.


And some steamed broccoli to round the plate out.



Some bits of chocolate and dried kiwi for dessert.


I’m in the middle of watching The Lovely Bones. The movie is really creepy, but in a good you on the edge of your seat kind of way. I am not inspired to read the book. I have a very bad habit of watching movies and then reading the book. I’m just backwards like that. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have plans tomorrow for my first open water swim since my tri last March and I am super nervous. Luckily I’ll have a triathlon rock star and sister there to help me rock it!

Good Night!!
