It's Pig in a Blanket Day!

April 24th is a day of dual celebrations. The more well-known holiday is Secretary's Day, now called Admin's Day by the politically correct police.

But the holiday related to food and wine is Pig in a Blanket Day. The "pig" being a sausage or hot dog; the "blanket" is a crescent roll or, more traditionally, a pancake. This, of course, leads to the question, "What wine with a pig in a blanket?"

Whether sausage or dogs the food will be fatty and salty. Sausages may be spicy. This is crying out for an off-dry sparkling wine, either white or rosé. If that's too fancy for you then find a (cheap) Riesling. 

Maybe surprise your favorite admin assistant today. Enjoy!
