Anything that involves beer and food...they are in.
Fortunately, I know hubby well, and therefore have a pile of quick, easy go-to recipes for an occasion such as this.
To make things easier, I grabbed a bag of frozen, already cut, chicken wings.
And here is where I need to tell on myself. I wasn't going to...but...we all need a good laugh.
I pulled the chicken out to thaw. I had a half day at work, and knew they would be thawed but still cold by the time I got home.
I arrived home, and headed for the kitchen. There is no chicken where I left it.
Checked in the fridge, nothing.
Maybe the little fridge...nothing.
My first thought was "oh-no, did hubby think this was a mistake and put it back in the freezer?". Nope, not there.
I call up hubbs, and leave him a friendly voice mail.
"Hey honey, just calling to see how your day is going....and to ask you where I might find the chicken for tonight".
Check all above places again, just in case it mysteriously appeared.
My mother calls. Chit chatting with her...filling her in on our missing chicken.
Decide to check the cooler outside (even though it's pouring rain and come on, it just doesn't make sense)
Oh...maybe it's in the oven (why? but it's a place I didn't look)
OMG...I didn't check the microwave!
I open it up (still on the phone with mommy dearest) and BAM! there is my bag-o-chicken.
And that is when I see it.
On bright yellow paper....written quite large...
"CHICKEN IS IN MICRO"
I did that.
I quickly texted hubby and admitted to being naturally blonde.
My mother is still on the phone, very much enjoying this moment. A little too much maybe.
:::sigh::: If you can't laugh at yourself...right?
4 Lbs wings
12 oz Apricot preserves
¼ Cup Honey Catalina dressing
2 Tbsp Honey mustard
2 Tbsp Barbecue sauce
1 Tsp lime juice
4 Dashes hot sauce
1 Small onion, minced
1. Place wings on baking sheet
2. Sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic powder
3. Broil for 8-10 minutes each side, until browned.
4. Mix together apricot preserves, Catalina dressing, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, lime juice, hot sauce, and onion
5. Once wings are browned, place them in your crock pot
6. Pour the sauce in. Mix well to ensure all wings are coated
7. Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 2-3 hours
And then do you know what blonde me did?
Made the wings...smelled them for hours...and then POOF they were gone. Yeah. No picture was taken by me.
So, I have borrowed the picture from the original blogger, and will replace it when I make these again.
