Fly Me to the Moon: On BBQ Wings!

Keeping with our Memorial Day theme, today we roasted plump little chicken wings. They were smothered in a sticky spicy red BBQ sauce that I made with a base of commercial sauce, and spiked with lime juice, lime pulp, garlic salt, chili powder and freshly ground pepper.  I purchased the wings whole, removed the end parts and cut them into little drumette and wing portions with a cleaver.  I used my trusty wooden reamer to squeeze out every last drop (and a little of the pulp) from a few limes, sprinkled with generous helpings of the garlic salt, pepper and chili powder and poured the sauce all over.  They roast in a preheated oven at 350º for 30 minutes, turning halfway through to re-do the spices and sauce other side.

We added celery stalks and homemade blue cheese dressing with crumbled blue cheese on top.  Every savory bite is a finger-licking juicy treat! Great for appetizers, an entrée, or a mid-afternoon snack while watching the game.  Be sure to have plenty of paper towels handy!

All-American Holiday

It's Memorial Day weekend, and time to bring out the burgers and fries! We grilled our own ground beef, topped with red onion, dill pickle chips, a slice of hot house tomato and a side of curly fries. This mouth-watering treat, and a Yankee game, makes the day complete.
