Most weeks I work Thursday to Sunday so some weeks dinners are quick and easy. Friday night we had a feast of wings. Spicy oven baked wings with a hot dipping sauce.
I love wings and have two favourite ways of preparing them. One is to toss the wings with lots of garlic, lemon zest, black pepper and sea salt and leave in the fridge all day or overnight. The wings absorb all that wonderful garlicky lemon flavour and then are baked in a hot oven, turning a couple of times until they are tender and crisp. I don’t bother with a dipping sauce when I make them that way. And, if I have time I’ll make homemade potato chips to serve with them.
The second way is to rub them with fresh garlic, sprinkle with cayenne, salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil and bake, again turning a couple of times. This is the way I did them on Friday night. These can be served right out of the oven or even better, place them on a hot grill for just a minute or two to char them a little. Sooooooooo Gooooooood!!
Sunday night’s dinner was also simple. Bangers and Mash. I pulled some leftover turkey gravy out of the freezer and served it over mashed potatoes along side the sausage. Veggies were rutabaga and steamed and buttered broccoli.
