Emergency Blog! I Just Made The Best Wings of All Time!

We bought an air fryer today so, of course, I had to try it out as soon as we got home.  What better way to test your air fryer out than by making wings, right?  Right!

They were crispy on the outside and the chicken pulled right off the bone.  And this sauce…forget about it!  This sauce I made is the only sauce that should legally be allowed to touch a chicken wing.

Here’s the recipe:  (serves 2 people)

Buy 1 pound of chicken wings.  I recommend getting the whole wing.  If you want to be a bitch about it you can cut the drummettes from the flats or buy a pack of drummettes and flats already cut.  I did the whole wing because I’m OG.  You should get 8 good-size wings out of a 1 pound package.  Warning: this recipe is for unfrozen wings.  Buy your shit fresh.  Don’t buy those shitty frozen wings they put out in the middle cooler because you’re better than that!

I have a 4 quart air fryer and it’s a Ninja, because Ninjas kick ass.  You should be able to position 8 full wings in the air fryer without having to stack them on top of each other.  Just squeeze them tightly together.  Air fry the wings at 375 degrees for 25 minutes and turn them half-way through.  This will make your wings fall-off-the-bone tender.

During this 25 minutes, make your sauce.  You’re going to slowly melt a stick of butter (low heat) and then stir in 2 tablespoons of minced garlic from a jar, 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese, a teaspoon of lime juice, Frank’s Hot Sauce (enough to give it that buffalo sauce color), then salt and pepper to taste.  Let that sauce simmer, stirring occasionally until your 25 minute timer goes off.  Now, it’s magic time!

Once your goes off, turn the wings right side up again and set the temperature on your air fryer to 400 degrees and your timer for 5 minutes.  This is where the skin gets crispy.  Don’t worry, you won’t lose the moisture and tenderness on the inside of the wing.  Crispy on the outside, moist and tender on the inside, that’s what you’re looking for.  Don’t fuck around and make your wings slimy.  Slimy wings are for serial killers.

Once the 5-minute timer goes off, use tongs to put your wings in a big-ass bowl, pour your sauce over the wings, top with a lid and shake the shit out of them.  Now you’re ready to plate! 

I didn’t cook a side but obviously that’s a good idea if you’re wanting to impress someone.  My lady and I have been together long enough that I don’t have to worry about it.  Besides, the wings seemed to have impressed her enough because I cooked two batches and I think she ate 10  wings to my 6, and she’s not a big wing person.  I’m telling you, these wings are legit!  Try them for yourself!

Top 5 Canadian Foods You Need To Try

After listening to the ketchup chip debate on Heartland Radio 2.0 I decided this is a blog that needed to be done and needed to be done ASAP. So without further adieu lets get into the top 5 treats north of the border.

Number 5: We will start with all dressed and ketchup chips, these are both very tasty, ketchup are great but all dressed are definitely in my top 5 potato chips available.

Number 4: We have the Coffee Crisp chocolate bar, layers of vanilla wafer, foamed coffee candy and covered with milk chocolate. Its one of the favourite halloween chocolate bars here and was introduced in Canada in the 1930’s.

Number 3: Another tasty canadian treat is the Beavertail. Its a slab of deep fried dough, covered in a variety of toppings such as Reese’s Pieces, Nutella, peanut butter and more.

Number 2: The Caesar, now they have started to get these in the States lately but most places you go they still have bloody mary’s. Its our national cocktail, made of vodka, clamato juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce. Its perfect for a hangover or to get the day started at a nice brunch.

Number 1: Now you can debate what are in my top 5 up until now, yours could be completely different. But there will be absolutely NO debate on what number one is. The poutine, its crispy fries, squeaky cheese curds and gravy. The classic version is great on its own but you can now get it with all sorts of different toppings such as pulled pork, bacon or smoked meat. Glad i could share some canadian culture with y’all. Lets have a Wednesday everybody.

Guy Shows Up Late For First Shift At McDonalds, Proceeds To Rob A Different One 5 Miles Away

Fox News – The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said the series of events began when a man dressed in an employee uniform entered a local McDonald’s on Thursday telling the manager he had been sent in from another location to help.

The shift manager reportedly said he needed to fill out some paperwork and took the man to the restaurant’s kitchen area. It was there the man allegedly pulled out a handgun and demanded all the money in the safe.

‘Yeah, corporate sent me to help you guys out.’ was probably when the manager realized he was being robbed by this kid. Imagine being a manager at McDonalds for years and for the first time some dude just strolls in saying he was sent from another location to help. I know the manager was ready for this too because all the guy made out with was 1,500$ out of a safe from McDonalds. Give me a break, every McDonalds is raking in cash and if you think 1500 is all a safe has in that restaurant then you probably just left the one you work at to rob this one. 

What I’m having trouble deciding was whether this was this guys plan the entire time. If that was the case then this would be the most lazy yet genius plot to rob a McDonalds of all time. Apply for the job, show up late to the first day but still get the uniform, go down the street and rob a different one dressed as an employee. Would be a plot for the ages if this was the thought process but I don’t think this kid has ever had a thought fully processed.

What I still don’t understand is how people use their sticky fingers when everyone under the sun has a camera. This kid didn’t even have a mask or anything on so he must of made it, what, twenty minutes before someone was putting him in cuffs for 1500 dollars. Tough go for this kid but I do think his plan was about a C+, still better than any grade I got in college. 

If you had to rob a McDonalds, what would your strategy be? I think I would go break in through drive through window and take the coke machine. Everyone knows the real money in McDonalds is in whatever they do to make their coke so delicious. 


Pringles Just Changed The Thanksgiving Game

Last year Pringles released a line of Thanksgiving Dinner-flavored chips to the media only, and some people raised a big stink because they wanted to try them too. This year everyone can experience the thrill, because the brand is releasing three of their exclusive Thanksgiving Dinner Pringles flavors — turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie — online on November 6.

Pringles is revolutionizing the game with this move right here. Thanksgiving, personally, is the best holiday with the least amount of pressure. Christmas is cool but you have to worry about getting gifts for people and you have to worry about getting a shitty gift and still having to react like its an awesome one. But not on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is all about vitamins, leftovers, and watching the Cowboys lose. 

You can’t knock Pringles for this attempt here. People love Thanksgiving so why not try and capture a few of the favorite items on most peoples lists’. Stuffing, pumpkin pie, and turkey are all lovable selections at the dinner table in the third week of November. Why wouldn’t they try and make a chip that encapsulates the greatest holiday of the year? I’m going to still go ahead and have the real version of stuffing, pumpkin pie, and turkey, but stocking up on these bad larry’s isn’t a bad idea. Middle of the spring and you pull out pumpkin pie and stuffing Pringles, that’s like walking into a party with two Taco Bell Party Packs. If I do get them, I’m presenting them exactly like this photo, including the red table cloth. Looks classy and wreaks of Thanksgiving. 

Let me know what kind of Thanksgiving Pringles you would choose or make below. Cranberry Sauce Pringles would be the best chaser in the history of food chasers.
