Today’s Menu: Baked BBQ Chicken Wings, Celery Sticks, and Garlic Herb Potatoes

 

Feeling a lot better today! I even got a full night’s sleep. Almost all the swelling on my right ear area is gone but my hearing isn’t quite back all the way though. With feeling better I’m back to solid food. So for Breakfast I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Meijer Diced Ham, 1 Egg Sunny Side Up, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. The Hash Browns, Ham, and Egg make a perfect Breakfast Bowl! After Breakfast I headed to Meijer to do some grocery shopping. Back home gave Mom a hand with the laundry and some house cleaning. Got the cart out for a bit. Watched some College Football then the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked BBQ Chicken Wings, Celery Sticks, and Garlic Herb Potatoes.

 

At Meijer I bought a bag of Meijer Brand BBQ Chicken Wings. First time trying this brand Wings. Mom and Dad had been wanting some Wings so that’s what we are having for Dinner. The Wings come frozen and already Seasoned.

 

 

 

 

To prepare them I preheated the oven on 375 degrees. Then got a large baking sheet, lined it with foil and sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray. Lined the Wings up in the pan and when the oven was ready I baked them. for about 27 minutes. Pulled them from the oven and let them sit for 3 minutes and served! The Wings were excellent! They were nice size and the Seasoning and BBQ Sauce was spot on. Served it with Celery Sticks along with Litehouse Lite Blue Cheese Dressing.

 

 

 

For a side Dad wanted some Potatoes so I picked up a package of Little Potato Company Garlic and Herb Potatoes. They come in a tin, ready for the oven container. Preheated the oven to 450 and sat the container on a small baking sheet. It comes with a Seasoning Packet of Garlic and Herb. I first brushed the Potatoes with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoned them with Seasoning Packet. Baked the for 45 minutes. The Potatoes came out perfect. Really enjoyed the Seasoning on them. Served them with a side of Daisy Light Sour Cream. Wings, Celery, and Potatoes for Dinner tonight! For a Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.
