So, Saturday being a caloric disaster, we move on to Sunday, which happened to be Super Bowl Sunday!! We had been invited to a couple of parties, but decided to stay home and I cooked a tableful of appetizers. I have to give Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman a huge shout out though! She was instrumental in my cooking success this weekend! I had watched an episode of her tv show a while back, where she made hot wings. Husband is from New York and hot wings (Buffalo wings) are a food staple back there. Maybe even a food group. Of course, in New York, one eats wings with blue cheese dressing, NOT ranch. Ranch dressing is very West Coast. I looked on her website and found super detailed instructions for making the wings. I followed aforementioned directions and adjusted the Frank's Hot Sauce to our taste (we prefer to eat wings without having a 4 alarm fire raging in our mouths). They were deeeee-licious!! I also made Queso according to Ree, which was also bomb. Also on the menu? Pigs in a Blanket, chips & salsa, something we call Heart Attack (cream cheese, chili, shredded cheese baked to bubbly perfection...served with Scoops!), and corn salsa, which made its way to the chicken coop. Here is a photo of the feast:
Any wonder that I felt Fat on Fat Tuesday????
