Never go to the grocery store when you're hungry, especially if meat is on sale!
Needed some salad greens so I swung by the grocery store, Lowe's Foods, early this morning. Walked by the butcher shop as is customary and found choice grade beef tenderloin for $10/lb and chicken drumsticks for $1/lb. Bottom line, I came home with a 6.5lb tenderloin, 18lbs of drumsticks, 5lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 2 packs of back and - of course - my salad greens. Like I said to my wife... "I got the salad greens, so mission accomplished!"
Made the sweet-n-sour honey glazed BBQ wings recipe I found here a while back - except I used the drumsticks instead and I added a little applewood for smoke. Carried 20 drumsticks to my neighbor, my crew ate around 25 (16 year old boy put away 9 by himself), and saved another 10 or so as leftovers. I ate one of the drumsticks before glazing them and it was darn good even without the honey BBQ sauce.
I'll cut the tenderloin into steaks and cook those these weekend.
