Christmas... Christmas......I love Christmas dinner...it is either roast wings or turkey. But turkey is too large for me to handle, so we settled for wings instead. Not even a whole chicken LOL! I tried out this roast wings recipe and gosh I think it is really good . I think it would be great to add this dish for the coming festive dinner. I am sure my Piggies would love these delicious finger licking good wings. The recipe is easy....just marinate the wings with red wine and over night in the fridge. I saw this recipe from the Australian Women's Weekly and adapted it a bit. Instead of using dry sherry , I used red cooking wine which I bought from BIG :)
I have to think of a few more meat dishes for the meat eating Piggies :p So, a lot of baking and roasting will be involved. And now thinking of all the greasy pans and plates, I have to use the dishwasher instead of washing up at the sink. WB will have to do a clean up the dishwasher first with dishwasher cleaner before the big day comes. Sometimes we may think that our dishwasher is clean because it looks clean but grease and limescale may build up in the vital parts of the dishwasher that are hard to see. WB will just have to use a bit of detergent like Finish Intensive Clean and Care , it will eliminates all grease and limescale in the hidden vital parts of the dishwasher . To WB, a cleaner dishwasher means cleaner dishes :) Sorry , I got distracted by the dishwasher, it is WB's job anyway not mine :p. Okay , back to this finger licking good roast wings, I have to pair it with a good bottle of wine. Ah, I will leave this to my Piggy Joanna. She will know what to pair with these wings and I am thinking of roast ribs too. Noted. Meanwhile, I will share the recipe for this dish so that you can make this for your Christmas dinner.
