Dro and I have grown up together. We meet in kindergarten and have been friends ever since. We went from princess parties to drinking partners to weddings (or wedding…I was Maid of Honor *curtsey) . In the last 10 years because of school, traveling, jobs, moving, this or that …”growing up” I guess you’d call it, our party benders have become much more subdued.  We now live on opposite ends of the city so we try to get together when we can. We hang once in a while now, usually getting our nails did and a stop for some dinner and a couple drinks. Chattering and giggling catching up as quickly as possible (A habit we’ve had since our long distance call days). Now my Dro is pregnant! YAY! . I’m really excited. Over the moon….Although it does however put a damper on our (already too short and far between) hang-outs. We decided to sober up our routine (not like we have a choice with baby on the way)… replacing beer with soda.

……and yes, soda pop  is perfectly healthy for an unborn child…I looked it up



wing sauce

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup franks hot sauce

Combine all ingredients together and separate in 2 bowls.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Spread wings in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. bake for 25min (or cook for 25min?? whatever…put’em in the oven).
  • Remove from oven and dump wings in 1 bowl of wing sauce. return to oven for 10 min.
  • Again, remove pan and dunk wings in 2nd bowl of wing sauce and return to pan cook for 5min and serve !

– I should mention everytime we took them out to flip them they stuck to the foil….I was really, really hungry so I may have been a little more frustrated by this then was necessary ….but, after the first dunk in the sauce the sticking stopped :)


dipping sauce

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • fresh chives
  • handful of fresh dill
  • pinch salt & pepper

combine all the ingredients (you can add as much herbs as you like…we played around until we liked it)


Sweet Potato Fries

There really isn’t a point to adding how I made these…they weren’t awesome, they were good, not great. I’ve looked at a thousand recipes and instructions on how to make crispy sweet potato oven fries…and I don’t believe it’s possible.


We had a wonderful dinner! We were starving when we started cooking (never a great way to start a post) I sorta rushed the photo taking so we could get the food cooked and on the table. However, giggling and laughing the whole time helped with the hunger.


Thanks for coming over for dinner Dro!
