Another Sunday dinner on the grill.
Going to make some baked beans. I have never made baked beans from scratch, because the stuff in the can does well for a starter. A little hot sauce to give it some zip, a little Mexican brown sugar to sweeten it up. You can’t see it very well, but on the side of the can of beans, there is a label that says “98% Fat Free !!”, well not to worry, the bacon is there to fix that !!
Ran the brown sugar over the grater. I probably could have just tossed the whole chunk in and let it dissolve.
Chicken legs and wings again. I de-boned the wings again.
Jalapeno peppers and some cream cheese.
I ran a knife around the edge of the pepper and then used the corkscrew in the body.
A gentle pull and twist and most of the pepper innards come right out. I used the kabob skewer and scraped out the rest of the inside. Yes, this is how I clean the peppers because I don’t know any other way.
Snizzle,snizzle,snizzle !!! Only cooking up half of the bacon.
Please note the latest addition to the kitchen, the 8 inch cast iron skillet. Very handy to use for doing smaller cooking. Good size to make cornbread too.
When I got done stuffing the wings with the peppers, I still had about 6 wings left. I thought that I would try to make a very simple crab meat stuffing. Green onions, butter, stuffing, a can of crab meat and some red chile flakes.
Just melted a stick of butter and mixed it all up. I had a few hours before cooking, so I put this in the fridge to cool down. Not sure putting something warm into the wings and then letting them sit for a few hours would be a food safety violation or not. (I’ve been sick from bad chicken and it’s not worth the risk !!)
The wife found some locally grown “Yukon Golds” at a Farmer’s market.
Chicken legs getting nice and crispy.
“Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble”
Mmmmm, boneless wings !!!!!
My de-boneing skills are getting much better, but I doubt that I will ever get good enough to be a prep monkey in a restaurant. This is the fourth time that I have made the wings with the peppers in them. I don’t think I will continue with that any more. It’s “OK”, but not good enough to keep doing it. I did like the crab stuffing and will look for other ideas for stuffing the wings. Any suggestions??
