Field Roast Mini Corn Dogs

Hi everyone! I haven’t done much exciting cooking this week; I was feeling kinda blah from what I’d thought were allergies after we got the furnace replaced (but more likely was a cold), so I mostly just did quick and easy meals like potato bowls, noodle bowls, canned soups, etc. Lunch today was another easy meal but something new: I finally saw the Field Roast mini corn dogs while grocery shopping, and they were on sale, so I had to grab a bag to try. I’m glad I did because they were really good! I had them with some Daiya cheezy mac (with sriracha) and added mustard for dipping.


Yesterday was an adventure; we lost power around 3 p.m. because of the storm (thankfully, it was restored by 9:30 p.m.). After braving the roads to get a warm dinner at Wegmans, Zach and I spent the rest of the power outage hunkered down in bed, but we had plenty of flashlights for reading (I started Bright Young Things by Scarlett Thomas). Leela was so excited to find us in bed already (she thought we’d decided to go to bed early) and snuggled in between us! Cringer cuddled with us briefly, but Daisy was too freaked out by the power being out to even think of joining us. After all of that, everyone’s especially happy for the sunshine today…



Peace. :)

  1. We had a brief brown out here. I had a moment of panic because it was late at night, and nothing was charged (my phone aka my alarm clock or the baby monitor) Luckily that was it.

    OH MAN! I am dying to try those corn dogs. But they were pretty expensive. T__T I am hoping they go on sale, but I might cave at some point.

    1. That's good that it was just a quick brownout for you, especially with nothing charged, I definitely would have panicked, too! Hopefully you'll find the corn dogs on sale soon!
      P.S. I don't know if my comments have been going to spam or if something is weird on my end, but I just wanted to let you know I've still been reading and enjoying your blog, even if my comments aren't showing up on your posts! :)

    2. Thanks for the heads up! That stinks. I try and scan the spam but I've been getting so many lately that I can't scan through hundreds of posts. I have no idea why it keep flagging you.

    3. No worries! :) It might have been because I changed my e-mail address, but that was probably around six months ago, so who knows. That's a shame about all the spam you're getting, though!

  2. We lost power for a few hours in the storm too but thankfully that was about it for us. I'm glad it was a relatively quick one for you as well. I keep hearing about the corn dogs and I'm so intrigued. I hate hot dogs so I'm feeling like I probably wouldn't like them but I'm still really curious to try!

    1. That stinks that you lost power, too, but I'm glad to hear it came back quickly! I guess the best way to describe the mini corn dogs is like pigs-in-blankets but the blanket is cornbread, haha! :D

  3. Ahhhh... so cute that she thought you were going to bed early for snuggles with her. Not so cute that it was because of a power outage!
    I have seen those corn dogs here, but they are pricey. I'll try them eventually, but I'll bide my time.
    I hope you are feeling better!

    1. It really was so cute; Leela actually seemed rather disappointed when the power came back because we got up from bed when it did! And thanks, I'm finally feeling better now! :)

  4. I still haven't seen the mini corn ogs anywhere and I want to try them so badly!! I use to love the morningstar farms corn dogs when I was vegetarian.
    My kitties love it when I'm in bed early for whatever reason too!
    I'm glad everything is back to normal! And glad you're feeling better!

  5. I haven't found those mini corndogs yet and they're on the top of my list. Maybe I should take the trip out to Wegman's. Everyone I know seems to love that place. Anyways, I hope you and the kitties are warm and with power. That must have been an uncomfortable scare. Let us know more about the novel you're reading. Maybe I'll look her up....

    1. Thanks, Janyce! I actually found the corn dogs at Kimberton Whole Foods, but Wegmans should have them, too; they always seem to have all the new foods, haha! I was so glad when the power came back; thankfully it wasn't out for too long! Bright Young Things was a quick read; there wasn't much action plot-wise, it was mostly just the various characters getting to know each other and slowly figuring out how (and why) they all wound up on an island together, but I really enjoyed it. (I've liked everything I've read by Scarlett Thomas so far except for Our Tragic Universe.)
