After breakfast I used the three over-ripe bananas sitting on my counter to make banana chocolate chip muffins:
I ran out of liners so half were naked:
The recipe is similar to the recipe I use for banana bread, but they're supposedly lower in fat. I'm eating two for breakfast right now and they're not as moist as I like, but they still taste great.
Around 4pm we turned on football and got ready for our chicken wing taste-off. The challenger was a wing sauce from a Buffalo, NY bar called Anchor Bar. Our neighbor bought it for us on a recent trip. The wings:
... were peppery and spicy, but nowhere near suicidal like the label claimed.
They were quite tasty, though and put up a good fight against the reigning champion:
... made with good old Frank's hot sauce.
We totally gorged ourselves on wings and celery dipped in blue cheese dressing as we watched the game. I think we overdosed on wings...it'll be awhile before either of us wants to eat them again. But man were they good!
Earlier in the day I made another half order of mac & chese:
... and discovered a conspiracy - a 1lb box of pasta does not actually contain a pound of pasta. The last time I made the mac & cheese I used shells. I measured out 8 ounces of pasta using my kitchen scale. Imagine my surprise when I measured the remaining pasta before making this batch and discovered there was only about 6 ounces left in the box. I opened the rigatoni I used instead and measured first 8 ounces and then the remainder - same thing. This really infuriates me. At least the mac & cheese was good.
