You know I love me some Paula.
We're like this.
Only she doesn't know it. But it's still true.
Oh Come on Paula, show us those beautiful eyes. She's shy, just like me!
I 've been buying her "Best Dishes Special Collector's Issues" for the past year. Many times I find recipes in these that you can't find on her website or in any of her cookbooks. I found this one yesterday.
I was looking through it in the check out lane at the grocery store and saw something I wanted to make right away so I left the check out and picked up a few more things.
Today I started the grill and got these babies going.
My husband loves wings.
Apparently, they are a fun snack to eat
while watching the Speed Channel.
Or HGTV, in my case.
Fruity Chicken Wings
1/2 cup apricot-pineapple preserves
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground ginger
2 garlic cloves
2 lbs chicken drummettes and wings
I blended the sauce in my bullet. Love the bullet. Then I coated the chicken and put them on the grill. Turn them over frequently so they don't burn. Baste frequently with the preserves mixture.
Oh, and I did add about a teaspoon of red pepper flakes to give them a little heat.
Very sticky and delicious!
You may possibly use an entire roll of paper towels when eating these.
I'm joining up at Melynda's Cookbook Sundays!
This is a new, fun way to share recipes and Melynda is lovely, although, she does leave comments on my blog that may, or may not, be true. Only I know for sure.
Check it out here.

On another note, we spent the morning on bee patrol. You may remember from a previous post that we have had a real problem with bees. They have been making hives under my husband's workshop. Back in February, we ended up jacking up the shed and digging the hives out. Well, some of the pesky critters have been trying to get back under there so this morning, we pulled all the rock from around the shed and filled everything with sand.
Do bees dig? Can they get through sand? If so, I give up and I'm moving.
Yes, that is my vacuum out there. While Brian was using his air compressor to get the rest of the sand out of the back of his truck, I let him blow out my vacuum. I allow him to do this once a month. Who wants to clean with a dirty vacuum?
One more thing.
Do you see anything growing in here?
Look very closely.
No, you don't see anything?
Neither do I.
How long does it take zinnias to start growing from seeds?
I'm not so patient.
