Some Like it Hot

It was like a scene out of a porno, which is ironic considering where I was: A young, attractive woman in shorts and a black tank top leans against her van, glistening with sweat due to the Florida heat. She looks a bit irritated and semi-desperate, but each time someone walks out of the shop she's at, her eyes light up with hope. Each time, however, she is disappointed. For an hour this goes on; in some ways it is pathetic to watch. Finally, though, a car parks next to her. Thankfully the driver is a middle aged Latino woman and not an old man in search of eye candy like would have happened in a proper (or disturbing) porn. The young woman gets out the jumper cables needed to bring her van back to life and her Latino savior is happy to help out this stranded, shimmering unfortunate. A good ending to a sucky situation.

I guess that's what I get for stopping at the Todd instead of going straight home after dropping my roommate off at work. What can I say, I was bored. And what better place to go when you're bored than a sex shop? On the bright side, I had an adventure. That's what life is, a crazy adventure that I'm going to enjoy instead of being miserable about random, unforeseen things (well, I'm going to try, at least).

Interestingly enough, I made hot drumsticks for dinner tonight (I didn't have chicken wings). The heat from today kind of sapped my appetite, so that's all I ate, but they were SO good. And they're super easy to make. First, you're going to preheat your oven to 350 F. While your oven is getting toasty, place your chicken in an oven safe glass pan thing. Depending on how spicy you want your chicken, bombard it with crushed pepper flakes.

Confetti chicken!

I also added a bit of paprika, too. Alright, now stick the chicken in the oven for 15 minutes. During these few minutes, you can make the sauce. Now, do exactly as I say. Go to your fridge and open it. Take out the butter. Not the margarine or "butter spread", butter. Screw all those low fat, fat free, reduced fat foods. Give me the full, greasy, buttery experience. I love butter, which is good because you're going to need almost a full stick for this sauce.

Stick the butter in the microwave and nuke it until it's nice a melted. Next, get a 12 ounce bottle of Louisiana hot sauce. Are you ready for this? Turn the bottle over your bowl of glorious melted butter and mix in almost all of it.

After the 15 minutes are up, take out the chicken and smother it in the sauce. Place the pan back in the oven and leave it for 45 minutes. About halfway through, baste the chicken (we don't want it to dry out). Let the mouthwatering smell engulf your kitchen for the remaining time, then take the chicken out, let it cool, and enjoy!
