That stinks, LPB.
All this talk about cupcakes I was planning on re-visiting your cupcake recipe in the near future, too... the one that uses sour cream (I think it was).

Cleaning out pantry and freezers. The potatoes are starting to show sprouts and I found a half dozen pretzel rolls in the freezer, so I'm thawing a package of burger for sloppy joe sliders. Potato salad on the side.

I go about 4x/year. It's nice to have others make something for you that you'll enjoy. It absolutely sucks it costs as much as it does
I knew I should have picked up some Spanish peanuts and vanilla ice cream while I was out. I don't think DQ is in my future anymore, seeing as how I am still cooking. They probably shut down at 9:00

Today is the yungun's birthday. He's a big 25 years old! We had Kadesma's pork chops in onion sauce with mashed taters. No one wanted a salad so we skipped the greens tonight. Then we had blue raspberry cake with blue raspberry frosting. (his favorite flavor and color).

Thanks to whoever gave the hint about Costco having affordable large whole chicken wings, I think it was you Andy.

I went through many old posts from the "wing king Pac" about grilled chicken wings and since I hadn't grilled them in over 20 years I was ready to go! The sauce I used was Lawry's (excellent) Hawaiian marinade mixed with a generous helping of Sriracha hot sauce. I put the tips removed whole wings in a pan, poured some of the sauce over them and cooked them covered indirect on the grill in the pan for 20 minutes. I finished them on the open grill brushing with more sauce for another 15 minutes or so till they were nicely colored and done.

With the wonderful wings, we had bacon wrapped asparagus, and a killer red and white Quinoa salad with marinated artichoke hearts, green onion,celery, tri colored bell pepper, sunflower seeds and a simple dressing of brown mustard whisked with olive oil.

Every once in a while we have a really remarkable dinner, and tonight was one, with a little help from my friends.

Nope. I think it was Frank Z. Great wings though. Sounds like a great combo in your marinade.

Probably not the greatest picture, but we had lamb roasted on the rotisserie. It came out beautiful, with a nice pink interior. I even ended up with more than enough pan drippings to make gravy.

Chili. A combo of sauced canned beans and plain beans, adding in a few of my own seasonings. After Himself declared it one of my best (which, unfortunately, I'll probably never be able to duplicate ) I told him my extras were lots of different Penzeys spices...and a small shake from the cocoa canister. Surprisingly, he still said it was great

pac, I know your wallet's pain about the DQ PB Buster sundae. I used to love Friendly's Reese's PB Cup Sundae with chocolate ice cream, but then I got cheap. Started to keep the necessities on hand at home so I could make one up when I had a taste for it. Somehow I kept running out of the ice cream...
