Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

This!
Make up a batch of pizza or pasta sauce.

Funny story - I always keep a bottle of cooking wine which I pour the remains of unfinished red wines. I was out of town, and my mom and her husband were watching the place and had dinner guests. They went through one bottle of wine, then saw my "open" bottle and figured they better drink it before it went south. They raved about how incredible it was, and how much their guests loved it, and that they were sorry that they'd used it all, but they'd buy me a new bottle. I laughed so hard I cried.

My cat drinks wine... only with cheese.

Ah, the hell with it.

Leave it open for a couple more days and it will make a nice vinaigrette!

I usually make a pan sauce with it but that is a great idea, think I'll try it.
