Piggy Poppers, Garden Trellis Cushion, & Barbie Hair Saver

Back when I was a kid... We would slice a hotdog in half long ways, butterfly it open, and top it with cheese. It would then go into the oven until the cheese melted. Good stuff folks:@) I thought I'd try that concept with these Piggy Poppers. It's another version of my Stuffed Jalapenos, and a tasty alternative if you're trying to save a few calories on the bun. 

Aldi has the regular size hotdogs and the 8 pack bigger size, I used the bigger ones and cut the dog in half, then into quarters. Just make them fit into your jalapenos...

I mentioned the idea of using a pool noodle at the top of a trellis to help the plant gently bend over the top instead of the vine possibly bending/kinking here. Someone tossed a green one out on trash day... Yep, I like the way green looks in the garden:@)

And finally, if there's a Barbie in your life you know the hair can quickly become a hot mess unruly... I love the idea of recycling garlic bags as hair savers, it works especially well with straight hair dolls and is really great at keeping bangs in place! This is a simple no-sew project that only requires a pair of scissors. It works well with either long or short hair, just cut the mesh to the length you need and slip it over the doll's head.

This is the type of garlic bag I use:

Piggy Poppers
Jalapenos, cut in half and cleaned of seeds and membrane
Large hotdogs, cut in half and quartered
Cheese of choice, slices to cover hotdog
  1. Place hotdog slice in each jalapeno.
  2. Bake at 357 degrees for about 12 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven, carefully add cheese to jalapeno and cover hotdog with cheese.
  4. Return to oven for about a minute or until cheese has melted.
  5. Serve with mustard, ketchup, BBQ sauce, etc, if desired.
Have a Happy Day:@)
