Just Another Monday

Where does the time go!!  It was just Friday I swear and now it's Monday afternoon.  Did I watch that much football, well I did watch a fair bit.  Watched  a movie, Star Trek: Beyond, not really very good, but a bit of fun and great to look at.  Through in some housework, Skyped with our daughter, grocery shopping, where in a fit of age-related blindness I bought a load of chicken wings instead of chicken thighs, and I don't like wings at all--wonder what I'll do with them, suggestions?
So we're back to Monday, today involves a letter to be notarized, a doctor's visit for Mac, buying popcorn---that's our evening treat--- and buying some chicken thighs.
Have just started the third in the Winston Churchill trilogy, The Last Lion, and like its predecessors it weighs in around 900 pages.
Still cross-stitching, may never finish, but I don't mind, I'm really enjoying it.  That's my Monday.

  1. You are brave reading the Churchill trilogy. You are obviously enjoying it! Chicken wings tray baked with tomatoes onions garlic peppers and small pototoes with a good shake of smokey paprika. Yum . We need to see an update of this cross stitch I think :). B xx

  2. I so agree the weekend whizzed by!

    I prefer chicken thighs to, but the recipe above sounds good.

    This is a nice recipe ... possibly a little more time consuming than you'd like - but have a look here

    Instead of potato, swede can make a good alternative too!

    All the best Jan

  3. You could make some chicken stock with the wings. Then pop it into bags and freeze. It tastes much better in recipes than the store bought broth.

  4. Stitching days together beats the alternative.

  5. I think my weekend whizzed past along with yours! 900 pages of Churchill? You must really love your history ;) I don't know what your cross-stitch pattern is, but maybe you will share it another time? Enjoy your week Janet,

  6. Cook them up, save only the meat and broth and make Homemade Chicken and Noodles or Chicken and Dumplings:)

  7. I'm clueless with wings or thighs for that matter. Breasts I can deal with. I too wonder where the time goes, it goes way too fast here in our neck of the woods!

  8. It was a long weekend, I thought I would relax a lot, but where the time went I don't know, now its Monday night!!!

  9. I would use the wings to make stock for the freezer rather than waste them, a great base for soups and gravies.

  10. The only chicken we buy is for our cat and he prefers the meat from thighs, I wouldn't know how to cook meat for humans anymore as it is so long since we have cooked or eaten any, I hope you find a way to use up the wings, sounds like you have had a very busy Monday:)

  11. I second Kristie with the stock suggestion for your chicken wings. Alternatively, deep fry them. Everything tastes nice deep fried. x

  12. I don't know where the time goes either, it seems to fly by, especially when you're having fun. I never buy wings either, I usually go for breast or thighs.

  13. My fit of laughing startled my husband into asking "what?" I read him about your grocery shopping and said "...and you think I'M blind!"
    My ex's mother (I loved her too much to call her my ex MIL) was the best Kentucky cook. She floured chicken wings, fried them in a skillet a little, then put them in a baking pan and poured a little BBQ sauce over them and baked them. They were to die for! Just thought I'd give you a recipe for those ill-picked wings. xo

  14. I am constantly reaching for the wrong thing at the store and bringing it home. I completely understand.

  15. I'm with the stock makers. I bought some wings today for that express purpose.

  16. I like chicken wings, but I'm of the opinion that the cooking of chicken wings can only be done by restaurants (I have an aversion to the mess caused by deep frying). So I'd be making stock, too.
