Ruby Tuesday - Good Eats
Ruby Tuesday allows us to showcase ruby reds of all varieties. The rubies can be great and profound or scattered and subtle. This week I have chosen the latter. The building is painted red for one. The large American flag is full of red as is the custom. And the smaller red on the awning is the symbol of New Haven's best meat packer, the incomparable Hummel Brothers (for dogs and other wursts). The place is the famous (in these parts) Al's Hot Dogs in Naugatuck, CT with the old-fashioned outdoor eating ambience in the warmth (and inside dining in the cold). This eatery serves the artery adjusting fast food, but it tastes so good here. A foot-long dog with a slight dollop of mustard and sauteed onions works for me. Summer reds are in vogue here, but see other rubies and visit Mary's fun photo meme!
