I decided to forego defrosting the chicken wings, and just threw 'em into the oven with garlic butter, salt, pepper, and granulated garlic. Eventually they'll be almost done, so I'll drain the liquid and pour on the wing sauce. Same thing I'm doing with the ribs, which are oiled and heavily seasoned, baking away merrily for a couple of hours, getting tender. I admit they are not Thompson Brother's quality, but nothing else is. My buddy Tony, his partner Rodney, and their son were in Atlanta this weekend and they made it to Thompson Brothers. And loved it. Does my heart good to spread the good news.
Here's a scary story - a woman in Texas is fired for refusing to color her naturally gray hair. Say what?
Since I went gray two years ago, I have gotten a whole lot of compliments. And not once have I been threatened with termination for refusing to color it. Maybe it does make me look older, but who am I trying to fool?
