I have a new alternative economic indicator for you: what cooking websites (Epicurious, Cooks.com) offer as suggestions for ingredients. I just got an email from cooks.com with 6 recipes for HOT DOG dishes. I kid you not! Crown roast of hot dogs and weenie stew included.

When the economy tanks, we start cooking with cheap foods! I guess they'll be no lamb, veal or king crab this season.

Bonus: A recipe for the stew pictured above above.
