11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Delish Buffalo Wing sauce and Buffalo Style Coleslaw =) on: August 04, 2010 11:34:03 AM
I wanted to come up with a sauce for chicken that would tase similar to Buffalo Wing Sauce, with out the fat. Buffalo Wing Sauce is just Frank's Red Hot Sauce & melted butter.

Simmer 2 cups low salt chicken broth till it reduces down to a little less than half.  Let it cool.
Add Frank's Red Hot Sauce to taste.
Add 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
Merinate chicken (I prefer skinless thighs & bonelss skinless breasts.) in about half this mixture.  Use the other half to baste chicken with as you are grilling or baking it.

I wanted a salad to go with the meat. When you get Buffalo wings you get celery sticks (sometimes carrot sticks) with creamy blue cheese dressing on the side.
Buffalo Style Coleslaw
Take a tub of low fat sour cream or low fat plain yogurt. put a couple coffee filters or a couple very thick paper towles in a strainer. Let sour cream (or yogurt) drain.
Mix together 1/2 bag coleslaw salad, 5 large carrots shredded , 5 large celery ribs diced.
Add 2 tablespoons mayo
Add drained sour cream (or yogurt), I use less, just like enough to bind salad.
sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients well.
Sprinkle blue cheese chunks over each serving.
(if you ae not worried about fat you can omit the sour cream & just mix veggies with chunky blue cheese dressing & a bit of mayo.)

Any leftover sour cream is excellent mixed with apple cider or malt vinagar, salt & pepper. add sliced cucumbers or shredded carrot.  =) You will LOVE it!!

Do you ever add veggies?? I love to add broccoli & shredded carrot. Toss them intot he pasta water at the last minute.

I don't remember the exact process, yopu could prob do a search online... tye dying with Sharpie markets. We did it with kids outdoors wasn"t too bad... white socks & t's let the kids choose 2 colors & they wrapped the rubber bands around the clotihng. clored between the bands. then sprayerd with rubbing alcohol & water.  I forgert what else was inovled  but the finished shirts & socks were pretty cute.

Muslin, dyed pink, or tulle would help cover walls. Maybe even gift wrap if you could find big rolls cheap.
A big punch bowl filled with the clear plastic bubbles like you get out of a vending machine  with assorted candies would be pretty.
Also a big bowl of pink punch.  Or even just a clear soda (sprite of squirt) with pink ice cubes & frozen watermellon balls & raspberries would be very pretty.

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. I pay a fixed price up front and receive a box of produce from a local farm once a week. I love it because it's organic, cheaper than the grocery store and it tastes amazing. You also get to try things that you wouldn't normally find at the store. If you're in the US, you can find CSAs in your area at localharvest.org
Thank you for the info!! I found 2 in my area, not sure if I can join mid season, but I have left messages with both farms. It's a great idea! I was able to find a couple other farm markets I didn't know about too.

Maybe try baking the rolls in the foil cupcake wrappers, I would twist of fold the dough into the papers so they look like a pretzle or like a swirl?
Then write with a sharpie on bottom of foil?
No idea if it would work, but a sugestion.
or maybe if you do a a paper cupcake wrapper, do a circle of parchment, then the dough. again writte on bottom of paper.?  either way you would want to test to make sure the ink dosen't bleed through

Paula Deen made an interesting watermellon, onion, and feta salad once. Never tried it, but it looks good. Sweet and salty.

I forgot about that salad. I like a version of a bed of mixed greens, small cubes of very cold watermellon, fetta & walnuts or smoked almonds. So tasty. I dress it with greek dressing & lime juice. Also very good with diced procuttio.

~put in blender or juicer. Freeze juice in ziploc freezer bags. Use as a base for smoothies. Add other fruit that you like to make it tasty for you.
~Put them on a table for sale on your sidewalk, driveway etc.
~Trade them with a neighob that has a garden for produce that you do want.
~ take to work as a treat for coworkers
~ bribe neighboorhood kids to do your weeding in payment for watermellon
~ see how far they bounce when tossed off your roof. Shocked Did I say that out loud??
~ have freinds over for a watermellon seed spitting contest

P.S. .... what is a CSA box?

Today lunch was a picnic in the park with my nephew & one of my cousins son. I made strawberry iced tea (the boys really loved it!! I used caffine free green tea, lots of fresh stawberries & a little strawberrie juice.), Peanut butter & banana on corn muffins for boys, turkey & spinach wrap for me, peaches, corn chips and salsa.
This morning I grilled 14 ears of corn & cut those off cobs & they are in freezer. (fire grilled corn is SO good in salsa & salads. to make it easy to cut corn, use ia BIG bowl, put a smaller bowl in upside down, so you have a little flat platforn to hold ear of corn while you are cutting kernals off & big bowl catches it.)
Dinner tonight will be more grilled corn, some pork steaks (marinating now in oj, cumin & garlic), and salad of baby spinach, baby carrots & stawberries. Rik Emmet (former lead man for Triumph) free in concert tonight.
