When either of my sons come to do some work for me, I always grease their palms with a few greenbacks and let them pick what they'd like to have for lunch. Bless them both, this is always very easy. Number one son came last week to paint the bedroom (Benjamin Moore's “Gray Mirage,” a medium sage color, that I love, love, LOVE!), and asked me to fix a recipe that he'd spotted online for Chili Dog Casserole. While you may be inclined to snort with haughty derision, don't. It was easy and darned good. To dress it up a bit (if one can dress up a chili dog), I served it with a side of Spanish rice (thank you Rice-a-Roni), and it was a hearty, satisfying, tasty meal. If, like me, you keep a package of hotdogs and your homemade chili perpetually in the freezer, you essentially have all of the components for this dish. I now have a package of flour tortillas in the freezer as well, so I'm ready to paint the next room.
