WingFest as Requested by the Princess

The Princess ships off to college in a week and requested a WingFest for Sunday night dinner with her BF and some friends. 

Not knowing how many we were serving, the Prince and I prepped 13 lbs of wings our usual way — 3.5:1 rub:cornstarch and into the fridge for 36 hours.  The Prince did the sauces — classic Buffalo and honey sriracha. Also served some rubbed and naked, just cuz.

13 lbs is a lot of prep and a lot of wings. It was well worth the effort and I hope will remind her of home on those late nights studying. 

Transitions are tough for everyone. Food helps. 

Vanilla got the the pic order screwed up, but you’ll get the idea, starting with the tasty beverage the adults had (and the kids no doubt snuck). 

It's a 302 thing . . .

    Great looking wings.  What a great college send off. Our college kids began planning their holiday meal requests before they even left!

  • A real feast right there. Love me some wings. Sweet lunch bowl. I like the Flume t-shirt. He’s got some good tunes, if you’re into the newer-type stuff. I like “Left Alone” with Chet Faker (A.K.A. Nick Murphy). “Holdin’ On” has also got a great groove.

    Nice job and that's a whole lotta wings.  I have a couple years to go, but I'll be a mess when my kids fly the coop.  Hope you're doing ok w it.

    Really nice looking wings. I like the watermelon idea, might have to steal that one.

    Wow, @HendersonTRKing!  Looks great!  I’m in a similar place - my princess returns to school very soon.  She and the queen are on a short trip to Florida- princess is decompressing after a fairly intense summer internship (actually, I think the commute was the harder part to deal with).  Enjoy your time together!

  • Thx for looking and for the kind comments.  In a surprise (to me), the Honey Sriracha beat out the Buffalo -- these youngins today just don't appreciate the classics.  It was pretty awesome all around -- lots of laughs and messy-winged up faces.  The watermelon was a HUGE hit, can't believe we didn't try this sooner.  The Prince sliced off one round end to make it sit steady, opened the other end and pulled out some fruit, used a hand mixer to liquify the inside, and strained it 2x to make it drinkable, and poured it back so people could ladle it out and customize their own tasty adult beverages.  It's times like these I hope the kids remember as they launch themselves into the wild world.  (And maybe they'll come back for more!)

    Can't ever go wrong with wings and those look like some tasty wings. Great job creating some wonderful memories for your Princess before shipping her off for a grand adventure.

    That loaded up Egg and the plated feast is a thing of pure beauty.  Very nice work.

    starting with the tasty beverage the adults had (and the kids no doubt snuck). 

    I lol'd at that one.  Feisty kids.
