What does Supberbowl Sunday mean to YOU?

FOOD, people…..FOOD.

Mr. Perfectly and I purchased 10 lbs of chicken wings from Sam’s Club in DECEMBER, because he was worried that the stores would run out in January. Due to the popularity of chicken wings during the Superbowl, that is.

We have a tradition at our house to make my super special awesome Hot Wings every year on Superbowl Sunday. Mr. P and the boys act as if they have died and gone to heaven when these hot wings are around.

I also want to make avocado quesadillas, and drink wine and watch the commercials. I honestly don’t know who is playing in the superbowl, except for the Arizona Cardinals. I wouldn’t have known that if it weren’t for J-Money and her super hilarious blog….that I check a million times a day for new updates……that usually aren’t there. HINT…..HINT J-Money?

Anyway, what else could we have on Superbowl Sunday?

I’ll give you all my super special awesome hot wing recipe if you give me suggestions for other fabulous food items to fix!!!!!!

Oh, hell, you KNOW I’ll post the recipe anyway—I always do!!!

3 lbs chicken wings (we prefer the drummette portion, but all sections work)
1 bottle (8-10 oz probably?) of FRANK’S Louisiana Hot sauce
¾ to 1 stick of butter (REAL BUTTER, PEOPLE)
1 pkg of ZESTY Italian dressing mix (dry mix) this is the important secret ingredient
1 splash of vinegar (splash is your definition---if you like vinegar splash a little more)

Deep fry all of your wings. Don’t bread them, just fry them NAKED. It takes about 10-12 minutes for the batch of wings to get done.

While wings are frying combine all other ingredients into a slow cooker (or CROCK POT---STOOGIE, A CROCK POT WORKS FOR THIS). Let the butter and hot sauce and spice mix melt together. TASTE IT. It will be very zesty…but do you want more butter? More zest? Add the vinegar at this time……..leave it out if you think it’s zingy enough…….more heat? Add more hot sauce……

Double the recipe if you want more wings.

Once all wings are fried and done, add to the slow cooker and coat wings with all the sauce. Let sit until all warmed through and serve. These are the most awesome wings EVER!!!!

I am still loving the AVEDA product smell emanating from my hair. I bought all new products after BRANDON cut my hair---and I smell like an Aveda concept salon. Aveda products get me all excited. The deep herbaceous smell is totally my thing. But why-oh-why are they so expensive? $21 for 8 oz of shampoo? C’MON!!! $7.50 for a trial size of hair spray? It’s INSANITY.

Well, that’s about all I’ve got for now, kiddo’s. Please send me recipe ideas and AVEDA products (Be Curly products, specifically). Thank you!

Toodles for now!!

I have never, in my life, watched the Super Bowl nor have I been to a Super Bowl Party.

I suggest Chex Mix. But I love Chex Mix in a way that is likely unnatural and unhealthy... so... yeah...

Enjoy your wings!

I heart spinach artichoke dip and discovered a few years back it's not terribly hard to make. I think I used a recipe from Betty Crocker! Would go great with those wings and quesadillas. I'm sure you could also make like a seven layer or a bean dip to go too - who doesn't like chips and dip at a party?? Of course, your crock pot is full of wings, but those little cocktail weenies/little smokies are a big hit around here. I also enjoy chasing hot wings with icy cold beer!!!!

I love super bowl parties for all the crap food I feel I'm allowed to eat. There's no reason I can't make small portions of crap food for other random weekends when hubby's watching a game, but for whatever reason, I don't!! I'm a dork.

Your menu sounds like a regular Sunday around here.

Have you tried the Aveda knock-off brand, Aura? I seem to remember it from a few years back. I don't know if it's still around. It smelled the same but cost about $100 less.

That sounds really good. I made wings for Ken and by "I made" I mean he made them for himself because anything with bones in it grosses me out.

He really enjoyed the wings I/he made but your recipe sounds so much yummier.

We didn't watch the super bowl, but we ate the food because really?

That's what it's about.
