Does it have to have "het" in the sentence? Can you just say We drinken wijn met avondeten?

I wrote "met avondeten" and was marked wrong. Should I report it or is it absolutely necessary to put "met het avondeten"?

To me personally it needs het, without it it sounds as if the dinner has been added to the wine. To give a clearer example. If you order fries/chips with mayonnaise, you order "Friet met mayo(nnaise)", so the mayonnaise is added to the fries/chips

How would it sound with ‘bij avondeten’?

"bij avondeten" would be the same: as if it's added. I think it really needs "het".

So if I was making a wine sauce, I would say "saus met wijn" and not "bij" because the wine is "in" the sauce?

I understand your logic but (since I am not native English) I don't understand why is dinner(without the) in dutch het avondeten (with het).
