Hot dogs or Pasties?

Tonight was the childcare center's International Night. I love the idea of International Night - learning about different cultures, trying new foods, listening to music from all over the world, and getting to know some of Caroline's friends and their families. But what drives me nuts about International Night is that the center serves hot dogs to showcase American food. Hot dogs originated in Germany. And even if people do associate hot dogs with America, aren't there better examples of American food? Or, since we're in Michigan, couldn't they have chosen something like pasties?
