“So go ahead, push your luck Say what it is you gotta say to me We will push on into that mystery And it’ll push right back” Dar Williams
I had nearly missed an appointment because I was listening to a guest speaker. It was so popular and well received everyone was invited back the next night to continue on the conversation. I was in my car, traffic was completely backed up and my gas tank light was on, nearly empty. My grandfather was in the passenger seat and was calmly helping me navigate through the busy streets, in this unfamiliar area, towards a gas station he, somehow, knew about. I cast a smile towards my grandfather in the passenger seat. He always knew just where to go. I woke up from the dream.
Every now and again real life reminding us to focus. To slow down, take a few steps back and look at this picture of our life in front of us. I headed to the kitchen, hoping to find some solid ground, and made some baked hot wings. Tracy from Shutterbean helped me out with this. Spicy, saucy and delicious. The cool and refreshing dip was made with greek yogurt, garlic and lemon juice. It was necessary.
I stepped up to the counter and asked the nice kid for a pound (or so) of wings. I felt like Claire in “Must Love Dogs” asking for one chicken breast and asking if I would like two. Fact. He thought I was crazy for only getting 15 wings. I knew I was making the right decision. The wings are tossed with some oil, salt and pepper and placed on a rack with a nice foil liner below. See this picture above? It means I did not read the directions. I added EVERYTHING to these wings and baked them. Do not make mistakes such as this. While the wings were baking I gathered up my yogurt dressing ingredients.
I added some lemon juice for flair from the original recipe by Sass & Veracity. Therefore, already redeeming myself for my previous error.
When the wings were ready I tossed them with some more hot sauce mixture…whoops.
It all worked out in the end. It always does. Have a great weekend friends!
