Yesterday we made my second favorite chicken wing recipe. The first is Crunchy Sesame Chicken wings from MH. This one is sweet and spicy and a little crispy–a little gooey. You’ll see that recipe soon on MHTV. After we finished filming, Calder sat in the living room to scarf down a plate full of them. That is the peril of this show. I want to eat everything we cook, right after we cook it. You’d think I’d learn after all the years I’ve spent working in a test kitchen. Tasting and evaluating? Yes. Going for the second and third bite because its so dam good? Not so much. SO, this weekend I step up the exercise–no big gym routine, just an extra 30 minutes speed walking with our strapping one-year old boy pup Steve.
Luca helped with the banana french toast before soccer practice today and said, “its totally time I learned to cook everything you know.” That is always the moment I wait for from the kids–when they are open and willing to learn. I will be dipping into the homemade sausage from my 200 pound pig aquisition to make some sort of pasta for dimer tonight along with a giant salad which I’m craving. And, a restful few days with the fam is all I need right now…AAhhh–the weekend.
