saturday at last

chicken wings
recipe is below
i've been cooking all morning, ot at least most of it trying to get things ready to take to the bbq. the chicken wings are done. the guacamole is done, and i have homemade blue corn chips to go with. and then there is the coffee cake, literally. i need to get a shower, but i need to get off my feet for a few minutes too. i do not want an epeisode of meniere's today, so it's best not to get too tired.
last night i managed to stay up until 3:40am reading book #7 of the sookie stackhouse aka true blood series. i am so caught up in these books i can't put them down. you have to understand that these books are completely not me. the book i read before starting these was "the kennedy brothers". i like non-fiction. i like historical novels about europe. i may like that stuff, but i am loving these dead books.

chicken wings (i made 6 dozen wings today so i increased the recipe by quite a bit)
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup louisiana hot sauce
1 dash pepper, Ground
1 dash garlic powder
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 chicken wings
bleu cheese salad dressing
vegetable oil, for frying

*combine the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
*put the wings into a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating each wing evenly.
*put the wings in the refrigerator for 60 to 90 minutes. (This will help the breading to stick to the wings when fried.)
*heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees.
*you want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely -- an inch or so deep at least. Combine the butter, hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended.
*put all the wings into the hot oil and fry them for 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown.
*remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain.
*but don't let them sit too long, because you want to serve the wings hot. Quickly put the wings into a large bowl.
*add the hot sauce and stir, coating all the wings evenly.
*you could also use a large plastic container with a lid for this.
*put all the wings inside the container, add the sauce, put on the lid, then shake. Serve with Bleu cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side.
