Love all of the comments and discussions here!  Makes me feel we are sitting around the table talking about our food and experiences!

The third eagle of the apocalypse explains the Satanic meaning of Miracle Whip deviled eggs.  Who knew some mayo would be so evil!

I like Deviled eggs.  They are easy to make and rich and spicy.  Especially with some devilish red pepper sprinkled on the yolk concoction.

traditional deviled eggs

This chef thinks she knows how to make them perfectly.  I'm not so sure, but she has some points.

I don't really use a recipe, I just dollop in the mustard, chopped onions, Sriracha or Tabasco, pinch of salt and pepper, and Mayo or whatever. Then sprinkle with something red.

I searched and search ... not a strawberry showing color yet! Bought some at the green grocery, they are shipped in. You know the kind, feel like they are made of leather and taste like cardboard. My strawberry bucket is waiting to be filled with those wonderfully tasty, fresh from the garden berries.

Did you ever compete in an unusual food contest?

My two-year-younger brother and I, soon after we started school, did that.

I poured chocolate syrup onto a piece of bread, folded the bread and ate it. He filled a teaspoon with salt and ate it.

We both survived and often chuckled over it.

I kept to myself my belief that my choice was more imaginative than his.

Well, on forced leave from work (my cardiologist put his boot up my rear end till my breath smelled like shoe leather). Anyway, made the cream of chicken green chile soup. Not too bad, if I say so myself. Only problem is that I over seasoned it. Substituted dried herbs for fresh, and I should have cut down the quantity. Other than than that, came out OK. Not exactly the same as the version I got at the Owl Cafe, but it's a work in progress.

Yes, Tail o' The Pup was the place where I ate.  I'm glad to know that the structure was saved and is in storage awaiting a comeback.  I was there the day I went to a Johnny Carson taping in Burbank.

Here's the Wiki link for Pink's....that's the place that has gotten the most media exposure.

Okay.  I did a little research, and the hot dog place in Burbank was originally just "Larry's," and it was shaped like a hot dog.  There is now a "Larry's Chili Dog," in the same location, and it's an ordinary square building now.  How boring.

Pink's is an ordinary-shaped hot dog stand on LaBrea, and Tail o' The Pup in storage, still shaped like hot dog, still famous.

Small world. I ate in some Mexican restaurant in Albuq back in 67-8, but I don't remember the building. Unforgetable food, however! And I'm sure I ate at Felaine's hot dog stand back in the late 60's, early 70's. I know I ate many a "der Weinerschnitzel" (sp?)!

Sk8eycat, I visited that hot dog-shaped hot dog stand in 1988.  (Either that or there happened to be another one like it in the L.A. area.)  I was in L.A. with friends that year for a wedding.
