Mentioning sugar pie and poutine earlier reminded me that I had the weirdest dream last night. I dreamt of making a squash dish, and it was divine. In dream-world, I had some shallots, an onion, a bunch of yellow squash and garlic. I browned the shallot and onion, then added the squash and garlic and stir-fried them together. It was de-licious.

When I woke up, I remembered that we actually have all of those ingredients. Then I fell back asleep and forgot about it.
Fast-forward to this evening after SNG got home. I remembered the funky veggie dream, and decided to have the mythical dream-squash for dinner. SNG added a personal touch with truffle oil and fresh red peppers.

It was, to be sure, the stuff of my dreams.

BTW, the rest of dinner was catandtony-style hot dogs: a kosher dog, kraut (sadly, not Krispi Kraut), tomatoes, (mustard for SNG- ketchup for me) and Texas Pete on a wheat bun. I know, I know-- you are getting very hungry.

Do you remember those old Riunite wine commercials? "Riunite on ice, Riunite so nice, Riunite, Riunite!" There was an elderly woman eating a hot dog with her glass of Riunite on one of those commercials, an image which is inextricably tied to hot dogs in my neural circuitry. It's the reason I know that you should serve white wine with hot dogs.

Wow, we have different vegetable taste buds, because that sounds... eesh. But I'm not really a squash fan at all. Or a red pepper fan.
I will be sure to remember the white wine with hot dogs for my next dinner party, though. That's good to know.

Well, maybe not everyone loves Dream Squash. But at least we're all on the same page regarding wine with hot dogs!
