It's 'Blog EAT Blog' Out There!

I'll be participating in the fourth leg of the Blog Eat Blog series which has been created and arranged by



Big Apple Hot Dogs



) to get bloggers and food-lovers together for fun and fodder by challenging them to create the ultimate topping for his ultimately tasty hotdogs.  I met Abiye last year and he's great, his hot dogs are great and it's great that his Old St stall is just around the corner!

The Blog EAT Blog series have been held each Sun lunch since 26 Feb at the

Vibe Bar

.  Unfortunately I couldn't attend the first three heats but I've been following the latest Blog EAT Blog news via Big Apple Hot Dogs twitter, the participants twitters and blogs and I've decided to to a little summary here in preparation for this weeks upcoming heat of which I will be stepping into the ring.
