Man Food

There are some things that will always appeal to your man.  At least that I’ve found.



Meat and potatoes.

Green bean casserole.

I mean…  at least they appeal to my man.  Yours might be different.

This is my man after wings.  Notice I do not have a picture of the wings.  Just a pile of bones.

This recipe is my friends. It’s wonderful.

1 1/4 c. ketchup
1/3 c. white vinegar
1/4 c. molasses
1/4 c. honey
1 tsp. liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. chili powder

I’ve used black strap molasses at times… just added brown sugar (to taste) to take the edge off of the black strap molasses.

Heat up the sauce until it’s nice and bubbly, then you can back off the heat and let it just slowly “burble” until you’re ready to use it.

For the wings:

2 packets chicken wings

1 cup flour

1 cup cornstarch

salt to taste

pepper to taste

Oil for frying

I dredge the wings in a mixture of half cornstarch and half flour seasoned with salt and pepper. For some reason, the cornstarch gives a different “crunch” than just flour.

Once I fry the wings up, I put them in a container, pour the sauce over them, cover them, then “shake” to coat them all.

I’ll spare you the baby picture this time.




About Tabi

I love the simple things in life, like, wearing skirts and going barefoot. Cooking glorious meals to feed friends and family. Trying to find healthy food at the grocery store on a limited budget. Spinning wool, (yes that's from sheep and goats and llamas), crocheting, and weaving. Picking fresh produce out of a garden, pouring real maple syrup over pancakes, and making a warm and loving home for my family. However, I don't use only whole wheat flour. I do not take reusable grocery bags to the store with me. I indulge in boxed meals when I must. I prefer sugar to honey. I do not shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, or Earth Fare except on very special occasions when I have extravagant amounts of money to spend. I HATE cloth diapers. I believe in breastfeeding babies, but not until they're five. I buy pre-made baby food. Somewhere in all this, I want to find the balance between the fanatical and the uncaring. Somehow, I hope to settle on doable.
