23 Years and Counting...

Today is My and Ken's Anniversary...sort of. lol While we aren't legally married we've been living together now for 22 years and have known each other for 23 years. 

We are opposites in just about everything but that makes for a very interesting relationship. I like sweets, Horror movies, romance books, staying at home, Mexican food and Heavy Metal. 

Ken likes savory foods, Action movies, action books, going hiking/fishing, Italian Food and soft classic rock. 

Total opposites...

We made it work because we can talk to each other, he talks more than I do sometimes. We have shown each other new things, got each other to try new things and have always been there for each other. 

I showed Ken that Rats are great pets and now he loves them. I showed Ken that it's ok to have tacos for thanksgiving dinner-everybody loved them. And he showed me that sautéed peppers and onions aren't bad after all, that cream cheese is great on bagels and it's ok to be yourself. 

I wouldn't change the last 23 years for if I can only get him to start reading romance novels....

Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe

This is my recipe for making hot chicken wings. I like this recipe because I like a little my chicken wings to be a little spicy without burning my tongue off and the hot sauce you use really makes a difference here. 

Start off by taking 4 lbs of chicken wings (I use the frozen ones) and bake them for an hour at 350F. They will be underdone but we will cook them the rest of the way in this next step. 

You will also need a jar of Franks Red Hot sauce..12Oz..and the original is the best for this recipe. You are going to use the whole bottle. 

Along with the Franks Red Hot Sauce you will need two sticks of sweet cream butter-unsalted. (Yes, I know that's a lot of butter) Make sure you use real butter and not margarine..Margarine just doesn't taste the same. 

After you have roasted your chicken wings for an hour, take them out and add the two sticks of butter to a deep pan and turn on medium. When the butter has melted, add the entire bottle of Franks Red Hot Sauce to the pan of butter and stir. 

Now add the roasted chicken to the pan of butter and hot sauce and simmer for 30 minutes. This will cook the chicken the rest of the way and give the chicken time to absorb the flavor. 

Take the chicken out of the pan and enjoy.
