Mmm… hot wings and fries

My local chain grocer has wings in a “family value pack” and they are a pretty good value.  I didn’t note the price on this package today other than it was less than 4 dollars for a couple of dozen wings.  It is trivial to take these apart and fry them with a simple flour breading and any sauce will do.  Mrs J likes the thick sweet sauces like Sweet Baby Ray’s, I go for the vinegary cayenne and paprika sauces.  We bought a couple of big, nice Idaho potatoes the other day at our new favorite greengrocer so I cut them into not quite shoelaces and fried them twice.  You really have to do this twice fried thing with your potatoes, they are great.


Mmm… breakfast pr0n

This is that chorizo I made the other day.  It’s pretty good, but I will tweak the recipe next time, it needs more paprika and other chili powders, and more garlic.  In the background are deep fried tortilla wedges with a sprinkle of hot sauce.  They are the perfect side for this breakfast.
