If you ever find yourself in doubt as to how many hot dogs you should make for 40-50 people when you are also serving pizza at a party, the answer is 10, not 60.
Or you know, skip the hot dogs altogether, but to do that would mean having the birthday girl losing a food allergy. Or skip the pizza, but that would mean going all beef with the hot dogs to satisfy the religious dietary restrictions of several party guests. And that’s expensive! (Though probably less expensive than doing hot dogs AND pizza retrospectively.)
If I weren’t so exhausted right now from hosting a party, I’d have a second party two hours after the first one ended to get rid of the hot dogs!
