dingo’s wingos

September 12, 2011

Why not?  It’s the first weekend of NFL action and a plate of chicken wings seems like an appropriate springboard into the season of comfort foods.  One might think preparing chicken wings doesn’t take any thought…but then again one might not know the way of the dingo.  Coat the wingettes with seasoned flour and oven fry.  Saute chopped jalepeños in butter and add the Red Hot (not Tabasco).  Toss together and serve with homemade blue cheese dressing.  Don’t over-think it!

    Word for the day…

    Bent at the elbow.

    Traditionally, Buffalo wings should be cut in half so that they resemble miniature drumsticks rather than their anatomical akimbo shape. Regrettably, when preparing these little darlings, I am never inclined to cleaver through the rigid cartilage and slippery goose-bumped skin for fear that I may sever my thumb. That would create quite a conudrum for the diner trying to differentiate between picking wings drenched in the spicy, thick, rich, red cayenne hot sauce against those laden with my viscous plasma (albeit rich and spicy as well…)

    Speaking of the season(ing), these wings are sooooo smokin’ they look like they can hold tight onto any football right in the crook of their wing (if left akimbo), and maybe lend a hand to the NY Giants in avoiding unnecessary turnovers this year. Maybe next week you can arrange to serve some “chicken fingers” to help Manning’s passing ability. The pun is most definitely intended.

    First of all leave my Giants out of it! Secondly, sharpen your knife and Man-up. It’s football season and if you want to run with the big dogs of the Grid Iron don’t be afraid to cut them at the elbow. Real football fans aren’t afraid of a little blood. Maybe Eli needs a wing-man (woman). Don’t be afraid to slice, spice and make them nice…

      I would leave your Giants out of it if I didn’t have to give the puppy a Xanax during the game because my roomate throws a shoe at the TV…

      As for manning up… Have old reruns of “I Love Lucy” taught you nothing about the art of manipulation??? Thank you, but I think not. I am quite comfortable with my femininity and my demure charm and proudly donn a frilly apron and lavender Playtex rubber gloves all while batting my eyelashes, while my strong counterpart does all the dirty-work. I am the Lucy to his Rickey…
