I love chicken wings. If you were to ask me what my comfort food is currently, I would tell you chicken wings without a doubt. Getting them at a restaurant is often expensive, so it’s more economical to make them at home coated with your favorite seasoning and covered with your favorite barbecue sauce.
My favorite seasoning is from a local shop. Rosebuds is located at the 2nd Street Market, a local farmer’s market/ artisan shop. My seasoning is the Campfire Rub which reminds me of cooking over an actual campfire. Yum!
I just get a bottle of honey barbecue sauce from Aldi. Youngest and I just like a basic barbecue sauce. I also like a Carolina type of barbecue sauce.
I’m not good at explaining how to cut up the chicken wings. I know I’m not the best at it. So I did what I do best, I googled how to cut up the chicken wings properly. Click here for the directions and then return to my blog for the recipe.
What to Serve with the chicken wings
Salad (greens, veggie or fruit, topping) with a dressing
Cooked frozen or canned veggies
Chips, French fries, or Tater Tots – Our favorite is the seasoned Tater Tots from Alexa foods.
Celery or carrots with ranch or bleu cheese – Classic choice
Last week, I put bramble beans on our menu but didn’t have time to meal prep. So when it came time to cook the recipe, I had to change up how I was going to cook the meal. I decided to make it in my Instant Pot instead of the crockpot. It was easy to do.
So what do you serve with the bramble beans?
A simple side dish would be either a salad or frozen/ canned veggies warmed up.
I pretend to be a cereal eater. I buy cereals and most of them go to waste before they are eaten. Since the texture of milk in my cereal really bothers me, I eat dry cereal. That can get real boring quick. My husband and sons love cereal with milk. So I’m the odd man out in my family.
However, I enjoy eating granola in Greek yogurt. The pieces of the granola don’t get soggy like they do in milk. So making homemade granola can be cost efficient. Homemade granola can also be adapted to my taste and preference. I also know what exactly in it so there is no mystery ingredients. Plus it’s delicious!
So when this recipe crossed my inbox, my curiosity peaked. So I got the few ingredients I needed to make the granola. I made it on a Sunday morning before church. I took some with me to eat during the refreshment time so I wouldn’t eat any of the not so good goodies. When I shared some of it with my fellow church goers, they were impressed with the taste. As was I.
The granola combines the flavors of fall. Cinnamon and nutmeg tickle your taste buds. Apples scream fall! There are also a few surprises hidden in the granola.
