First Weiner Roast of the Year

The Husband has a seemingly insatiable appetite for hotdogs, especially cooked over an open fire.

Me, not so much.

However, if that's what is on tap for supper, and if it is a nice day to be outside, I'll go for one. Just one. With sauerkraut, mustard and chipotle sauce.

Of course, at this time of year the first step is to liberate the fire pit from snow. It was drier snow when The Husband cleared the path and area around the pit. I'd burned spoiled boxes and other debris the day before (Saturday), so the pit itself was mostly snow-free.

The Youngest Grandson and his mom were over earlier in the afternoon, when the fire was built, and he enjoyed not only a walkable path (his legs are still very short) but packed snow to climb on and *mmm!* clean snow to eat.

It isn't a meal without merit. We do provide proper rehydration. And yes, that label says Wayne Gretsky. Don't knock it until you've tried it.

Although the morning hadn't been promising, the wind died down for a bit, and it was +2C outside, perfect conditions. Well, a little more sunshine would have been nice, but we'll take what we get and be happy for it.

See. All the condiments.

It's said that you should start as you intend to continue, or more accurately, 

“Begin as you mean to go on, and go on as you began, and let the Lord be all in all to you.”

This is a very good start to the new year.
