County Fair Corn Dogs
This is one of my son's favorite (he's 30 years old). He can eat 10 in one sitting dipping them in mustard. Whenever he decides to come over, he always requests them. 1/3 cup cornmeal 2/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1 beaten egg 2 tablespoons oil 1/2 cup milk 1 tablespoon prepared mustard 1 pound hot dogs (I use Sabrett's or Boar's Head) Flour for dredging the hot dogs Oil for frying Heat the oil to 375°F. Combine dry ingredients. Add egg, oil, milk and mustard. Mixing well. Insert wooden skewers (or new Popsicle sticks) lengthwise into hot dogs. Coat with flour, then dip into batter, coating well. Fry in deep hot oil for 2-3 minutes or till golden brown. Drain on paper towels to absorb any oil. Keep in a warm oven until you use up all of the hot dogs. Serve with mustard and enjoy!

Taco Wraps
Serves 4 to 8 1 pound lean ground beef or ground turkey 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon dried oregano 1 teaspoon dried ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 8 to 10 (8-inch) flour tortillas 2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (fresh or canned, drained) 2 to 3 cups finely chopped iceberg lettuce (or lettuce of choice) Condiments: sour cream, salsa, hot sauce, black olives, cilantro, chopped green onion, grated cheese, etc. Brown ground beef or turkey in a skillet over medium heat. Drain any grease. Add chili powder, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Remove from heat. If you have a gas stove, keep the flame on and place a flour tortilla directly on top of the burner. Using tongs, flip the tortilla over and over until it softens and is warmed through. Repeat with remaining tortillas, stacking them as you finish. If you have an electric stove, warm the tortillas in a dry skillet (preferably cast iron). Pass bowls of seasoned beef, tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream and salsa, if desired, along with any or all of the remaining condiments, and let people build their own wraps. Or, if you'd like to make wraps for serving, spread a little sour cream on a warmed tortilla. Top with a heaping tablespoon of the ground beef mixture. Add a heaping tablespoon of tomatoes and 2 or 3 spoonfuls of lettuce (hard to measure, I know, but it's a ballpark amount). Season as desired with salsa and hot sauce and the other condiments as desired.
