Oscar Dogs!

Knowing the Oscar's are just around the corner, I wanted to do an Oscar-themed post. But what to do? Plenty has been posted already in the food-blogosphere in terms of Oscar-themed menus, movie themed cookies and Oscar cocktails (or is that Oscartails?). It's Hollywoods biggest night, and with plenty of glamour goes plenty of good food. But I wanted to do something different.

What was I to do?

Well, to give you an idea of my thought process for the post, take a look at this flow chart:

Let me present: The Oscar Dogs - a different themed hot dog for each film nominated for best picture - there are nine in all! Take a look, then in the comments below VOTE for which "dog" you want to win the Oscar Dog!

  7. Choose the acclimatized rolex replica style. There are a lot of styles to acquire from if it comes to cowgirl boots, but western boots abandoned acquire two types – the adequate and accomplishment boots. Adequate boots are bogus to be chanel replica anatomic and they are created with archetypal design. While accomplishment boots are beside in style, like acclaimed artisan chafe in their louis vuitton replica all-overs nowadays such as the "old gringo boots".

  8. You see, my big sister never married and doesn't have any children. She's a very beautiful, independent woman who is absolutely crazy about her dog.
