Now for the wings. Jacob usually handles the wings, but this was my first time and I must say, not bad for a girl...
Honey Glazed Hot Wings
Recipe inspired by allrecipes
2lbs chicken wings
salt and pepper to taste
1 c honey
1/2 c butter, melted
1/2 c hot sauce
Preheat outdoor grill to medium heat, lightly brush oil on grates with a paper towel and tongs.
Rinse the wings and dry with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper. Spread out on grill and cook for about 20 minutes, until juices run clear. Periodically brush 1/2 cup of honey on wings while they cook.
Meanwhile melt butter in a large bowl and mix with hot sauce and remaining 1/2 cup of honey.
When wings are done dump in the sauce and serve with delicious blue cheese. I don't ususally like store bought blue cheese dressing since I always grew up with home made but, I was super impressed with Marzetti's Simply Dressed All Natural Blue Cheese dressing. You can find it with the refrigerated dressings by the produce. Delicious. Go on make your hubby's night.

OK I hate to ramble about how great I think something is like a movie or restaurant or food, etc. because then when someone else tries it, he/she may be disappointed only because his/her expectations were so high. Well, this pizza is the best. Anything mexican must be smothered in sour cream for me otherwise I will barely touch it. I didn't even want to put sour cream on this because it was soooo good without it. It has in only one bite become my new favorite food of all time. Jared loved it too. The kids, of course, wouldn't touch it because it had vegetables on it and as a rule they gag when they even hear the word vegetable. Good news about pizza is that for a family our size we have to make at least 2 pizzas anyway so one is cheese for them and one is extra yummy good with steak and veggies for us!! Enjoy!
