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.
