Our Super Bowl XLIV Lineup!
Greek Yogurt Dip I Buffalo Wings I Asian Hot Wings I Guacamole
Feeling the way I do today, I can't help but ask why? Why have this eventful day on a Sunday??
If you're feeling at all like me, it was all fun and games until I woke up this morning and realized - Ugh, it's Monday and I've gotta go to work!I will spare you the details, but we had a great Superbowl 2010. There was food-a-plenty, good company, and perhaps one too many beers haha!
Game Day Warm Up
I rolled out of bed, updated the blog over a cup a coffee...
The First Quarter - Greek Yogurt Dip
As I have mentioned before (New Years 2K10 entry...with crudite!) , this is another fairly forgivable dish, so do as you please.
I headed off to coach Mini Mites Hockey, where my 4 year old nephew plays.
With the Yogurt Dip and Guacamole ready to go, it was time to finish up the wings.
Rather than dealing with the oily mess of frying wings, we actually bake ours. With so much fat in the skin you can actually get a crispy fried result, simply by using a high oven temperature.
Also, to prevent soggy sides, I cook the wings on wire racks. This allows the fat to drip into the bottom of the baking sheet.
Asian Hot Wings
Sauce is made up of Sriracha, butter, lime zest, lime juice and cilantro.
The wings are tossed and coated with the fiery goodness.
Not much to take credit for here...I just poured my favorite store bought sauce over.
I will say, if you're in the mood for a good store bought sauce, I highly recommend Anchor Bar Buffalo Sauce...it's out of this world good!
We always have a bottle in the fridge, which I use as a condiment for chicken tenders and such. Actually, one of the best things to dip into the sauce are Chinese Chicken Fingers (yes, take out style)!!
Post Game Wrap Up
The evening was great fun and as always it was a therapeutic delight to spend a good chunk of Sunday in the kitchen!!
