Stassi Schroeder Celebrated Her Book Release with This Perfectly Basic Meal

On tour to promote her new book, the newly minted author and longtime hot-dog lover celebrated its release with the classic New York snack. 

In an April 16 Instagram story, Stassi shared a video of herself hitting up a hot-dog stand. She had firm instructions for the worker: "A hot dog: Mustard, relish, ketchup, onions." Yep, she checked all the boxes there!
