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.
Oh no. Bacon is lovely! (We can always agree on that!)

What you are saying is that skin and fat is better than ...well... meat.

Pac. There is no way around this. We disagree!

Can it ever be the same way again?

Surely we can come to some arrangement?

I am happy to agree that skin and bones make a great base for gravy?

Katy, there is meat on the two sections of a chicken wing. The first section is like a mini drumstick and the second section has meat between the two bones. Granted, it's not a lot, but coupled with the crispy skin and a flavorful sauce, they are fantastic. The meat has a better flavor than white breast meat. It's more like dark meat.

Of course, you have to be willing to use your fingers and get them dirty. Can't eat a wing with a knife and fork.

I have to ask. When I was in New York, the rain came down suddenly and heavily and my friend and I took shelter in a bar.

It seemed nice enough so we ordered drinks and "hot meat sandwiches" not really knowing what to expect.

We were served with the most delicious (and quite simple) sandwiches. They were filled with very thin slices of hot turkey between robust slices of bread. There were no accompaniments of any description. To date, I haven't had a nicer turkey sandwich.

Did your turkey sandwich "hit the spot" at the right time and the right place?If so, it was a good meal methinks!

It was definitley good. I look forward to it. It is as traditional as the Thanksgiving Turkey dinner. Except it happens a day or two later with the leftovers. I don't think I eat turkey sandwiches any other time of the year. Lightly toasted, mayonaise, lettuce, lots of pepper.....crunchy dill pickle on the side, cold lager to wash it down.....still have a bit of turkey left. May do it again for supper tomorrow...lol

Well, you have been distracted by a little girl...

The Spanish Rice meatloaf turned out great! There's enough for lunch tomorrow.
