Sounds delicious.

Did you use Szechuan pepper? Such a strange ingredient!

We ordered out: crispy coated wings for me and a Philly cheese steak sub (no tomato) for Stirling. I ordered more wings than usual. I wanted leftovers. I ate almost all of them. I think I had a wing deficit.

Do tomatoes come standard in Canada? I've never heard of tomatoes on Philly cheese steaks, but I'm sure I'd one that way.

And I know I have a wing deficiency
That's what I almost made tonight.

Ya know, I think tomatoes are pretty standard. The lady asked "All dressed" and I replied, "Yes, but no tomato."

Interesting. A slight variation being dressed, but it works for me.

I'm not sure if it is appropriate to mention this on this thread, but "wings" are weird.

They appear to be made up of just skin, and bone - with some stringy muscle tendon to keep the two together.

What is appealing about this?

I can't see that there is anything to actually eat?

I had leftover cornbread-sausage-apple dressing from last night, so I reheated some of that and pan-seared some pork loin chops. I made an apple-cider-mustard sauce from the pan drippings and served it with a medley of sautéed zucchini, roasted red peppers and garlic, seasoned with thyme.

God, next thing you know you'll be saying you don't like bacon. You heretic you

Seriously, IMO it's all about the sauce. Sauce/seasoning is to wings what dip is to crackers.
It's like if you made a really good chicken and wished you had some more pieces with skin on it. Because that's where the flavoring is. If you make just wings you have all of that. You've got all that outside seasoning and just a little meat inside. The polar opposite of a chicken breast.

Yup, and I get all the wings at my house. Stirling thinks they are too fiddly and he isn't fond of skin on birds.
