First – how the hell did it get to be September?
Back to school today. This time of the year always make me feel a little nostalgic – gosh, I loved going back to school. I’m home with Colin today and we watched some of the neighbourhood kiddies leaving for their first day. Awwwwww, I want to go back to school.
Minus the studying. And the drama. And the germs. I’m a total germaphob. I don’t know what I’m going to do when the Bud goes to school.
Anyways – back to school = fall = COMFORT FOOD – the single reason I am excited for the end of summer.
I made these a few weeks ago and the boys thought they were pretty great. I’m going to try it tonight with some chicken thighs I have kickin’ around.
Hot and Sweet Drumsticks
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1/4 cup ketchup
1/8 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce of your choice (I used sriracha)
4 large chicken drumsticks
Preheat oven to 350F. In a small saucepan, combine preserves, ketchup, soy sauce and hot pepper sauce. Over medium-low heat, stir mixture until well combined and preserves have melted. Arrange drumsticks in a baking dish and pour the sauce over them, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until chicken is cooked, basting drumsticks in the sauce throughout. Serves 2-4.
