A Shortage Of Chicken Wings, Really?

What a weekend to live in America. Where else does the media descend upon a tiny rural town at the crack of dawn to wait for a rodent to emerge from his home? I’m not talking about the District of Columbia; I’m talking about Punxsutawney, PA.

But the media circus surrounding Punxsutawney Phil pales in comparison to the bigger circus that is the Super Bowl. And rightfully so.

Droves of people will be watching to see which sponsors produced the best commercials. Others will step in front of the TV to see if Beyonce lip-synchs at halftime.

Then, there are the diehards who participate in the revelry because they simply want to eat well.

I was a bit skeptical when I heard there was a shortage of chicken wings this year. We pump so many steroids into the birds to grow them faster that men are now buying bras. But alas, a shortage of wings poses no threat in the Italian kitchen where there’s no shortage of food for your Super Bowl or any other party.

Instead of hot wings, go for stuffed hot peppers, stromboli, pizza, meatball sandwiches, or hot roast pork. Any variety of dips will be a hit at your party and you can even throw some spinach in them to make you feel like you’re eating healthy.

If that all sounds like too much work, there’s always girl scout cookies!

Mangia and Enjoy!

    This is why we always say to those cute little girls sitting outside ShopRite selling cookies with their moms behind them: “Sorry, dear, but we don’t promote abortion.”

    No mother has as yet answered me back or challenged me.

    Oh my, Jim, you are right. I was not aware of this. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/01/17/pro-life-group-warns-about-girl-scouts-planned-parenthood-ties/

    Wasn’t there some flak a few years back regarding the Girl Scouts aligning themselves with Planned Parenthood? Has that stance been changed?
