Friday night is usually the time that Brian and I try to spend special time together. And while we never go out, I usually try to make something special, or sometimes he treats me to bringing supper home!
First, I made these soft pretzels which the recipe I found on Allrecipes. I made some home-made cheese dip to go with it as well. It was good, but I am not 100% thrilled with it yet, so once I tweak it a bit, I will share it as well.
I also made these Spicy Ranch wings which were very easy to make. And they are baked not fried! (Recipe at bottom)
We also enjoyed this appropriate little flick. Although a little silly(for my husband's taste), it made us laugh and we still enjoyed it.
And while this was a post about our date night, I could not resist posting a few pictures of my cuties.
She can't help it. She wants to be just like her daddy.
I know the coloring in this one is weird, but what do u think? Does she look like me? I'll have to scan an old picture of me soon...
Spicy Ranch Wings
- 1 pound chicken wingettes
- 1/4 cup hot pepper sauce
- 2 TB butter, melted
- 1 1/2 TB cider vinegar
- 1 envelope spicy ranch salad dressing mix (I only used half of it)
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- In a gallon size resealable plastic bag, combine pepper sauce, butter and vinegar. Add Chicken wings; seal bag and toss to coat evenly. Refrigerate 4-8 hours.
- Place chicken on racks in two greased baking pans. Sprinkle with dressing mix and paprika Bake, uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until juices run clear.
(Note: this recipe can easily doubled/tripled etc.)
Serve with ranch dressing!
Happy Hump Day!!
