Football season has started. Although the flurry of drafting picks has passed, the manfriend is highly invested in watching his players' games as he is participating in four leagues (he's currently in 1st (x2) and 3rd (x2)!). It has become a Sunday, Monday, and Thursday night ritual of watching football. I could sulk about the half a week I lose the manfriend to 200 pound, sweaty men piling up on top of each other or I could have some fun with it.
I chose the latter.
I decided to make the ultimate football night finger food, chicken wings. I've always wanted to make wings, and the manfriend said he made them before. Unfortunately, he couldn't remember the specifics of what he did, so we winged it.
(HA! get it? the pun? Ah, these are the moments I live for)
This recipe would have taken less than an hour if it weren't for the fact that we're an Asian household and BBQ sauce is optional in life. But I was too determined and too hungry (and craving it like a pregnant woman) to be stopped from achieving my dream of wings for Sunday night football. We threw some soy sauce into a pot, dumped some sugar in there, and basically kept taste testing the sauce and adjusting it.
These babies look so good...
Wish I had more...good thing I bought two bags of chicken wings!
