In Honor of Oscar Mayer
I wrote an article yesterday for Examiner.com called 'Oscar Mayer Bologna & Wienermobile Man Dies at 95'. I added a YouTube video of the little boy that sang the jingle in the 1973 commercial at the end. After writing the article, I felt like we needed to remember him by having Oscar Mayer wieners for supper (OK, truth be told, it made my mouth water just thinking of them). I also wanted Red Bliss Potato Salad to go with the wieners. I surprised myself by having everything I needed on the boat, so I didn't need to go out to the store. How many boaters can say that, huh?
When John came home he saw the potatoes and the wieners and put 2 & 2 together. Grilled hot dog buns, Oscar Mayer wieners, green relish, yellow mustard, minced onions and celery salt. Oh, and the potato salad. We sat down, had supper and watched the video. Man, did that take us back. Everybody knew those songs!
Go check out my article and let it take you down memory lane! Here's another video that isn't in the article. Enjoy!
