Double Down
With New-England-style buns and fixins' galore, Jonny'z always on my mind!
Prepare to crave these hotdogs. If you've already been to Jonny B'z Dogs and More, then you know exactly what I mean; the merest recollection that these dogs are readily available just minutes away is enough to get me out the door at almost any time of day (until 2:00 am Thursday-Saturday, even!).
Jonny B'z Seating
Dine-In or Carry Out
For those who fancy eating in, there's a spacious dining room tricked out in hotdog hues and adorned with flatscreens to facilitate watching those Tigers while you clean up the junkyard. We prefer to take these puppies out for some guerrilla doggin' in the streets, at the park, on a friend's porch, or in front of the telly, tee-vee-dinner-style. One time we even snuck them onto the patio for a nightcap at The Winchester (the kitchen was closed and it was after 'last call', okay?).
How-To Jonny B'z Junkyard
"Do-It-Yourself": Assembling The Vegan Junkyard Jonny
Here's how it works: Jonny B puts a jumbo vegan dog into a fresh-grilled New-England-style bun and then you tell him how to stack it up (anyway you want it!) for one low price of $3.39 per dog. My jam is to double-down on the Vegan Junkyard Jonny with catsup, mustard, onions, pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, kraut, housemade Amish relish, sport peppers, haystack onions, and--new this week--Jonny's veg chili, concocted by special request to answer the call of his vegan die-hards for the perfect chili-dog! Set that GPS to 638 Wealthy Street SE without delay, and we'll see you at Jonny B'z!

vegan sloppy joes

One of the things I have been craving lately is sloppy joes. Last week I finally got up the gumption to search out and try a recipe. This one I found from Recipe Zaar and it turned out excellently! Incase the website should go away at some point, here is the recipe, altered with my suggestions:


* 1 large onion, chopped
* 1 large green pepper, diced
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
* 1 1/2 cups boiling water
* 1 1/4 cups tomato sauce
* 1 1/4 cups ketchup
* 1.5 tablespoons chili powder
* 1 pinch pepper
* 1 tablespoon soy sauce
* 1 tablespoon mustard
* 1 tablespoon sugar (I use turbinado)
* 1 1/2 cups dry textured vegetable protein


1. Saute onion and green pepper in oil.
2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer together for 20 minutes.

I suggest a heaping serving of the sloppy joe on a whole wheat bun. I would post a photo of the finished product but it's so good I eat it too quickly for a photo!
