Coke Wings

I hate writing resumes and cover letters. Absolutely hate it. It would be so nice if I could just walk into an office and say: "Hey, I'm pretty good at what I do. Give me a chance and I'll show you just how good I can be." That's also what I'd like to say to the women that I'm interested in. Fortunately, Obama and Romney inspired me last night. Think of the debate as a long cover letter; selling selling selling themselves to their future employer, the American people. Luckily, I'm not going to have someone standing five feet away from me and calling me a liar every time I say something.

I guess I should get to the recipe so that I have one fewer excuse not to write this cover letter. In case you're wondering, I'm applying to be an intern during the upcoming legislative session. It'll be awesome assuming I get hired.

During my public financial management class I got bored and hungry and my mind wandered to Chicken Wings. You know I love Wings. Without change I made the sauce from the following website: http://taste-for-adventure.tablespoon.com/2012/01/27/coca-cola-chicken-wings. By the way, if you go to that website, the guy breads his Wings. Don't do that. Seriously. Just drop them in the frier for seven minutes and then drop them in the sauce. You'll be happy you did. ...except for the fact that I'm not sure that I terribly like this recipe. It's not that it's bad. In fact, it tastes like something you'd get at a restaurant, but it's missing something- it's not sweet enough or hot enough or something. It's a good start, but I'm convinced that there are better ways to get that Coked-up flavor.

Coke-a-Cola Wings



12 oz. Can HEB Cola (I'm still going to call it Coke-a-Cola Wings. Whatevs.)
1/2 c. Ketchup
1/4 c. Frank's RedHot
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
Pinch Garlic Powder
Pinch Pepper

Make your Wings the right way: unbreaded and fried for seven minutes at 375. Make sure to start the sauce a good 20-30 minutes before you start frying, because it'll take a while to reduce the sauce to the thick and gooey gunk you associate with Wings. Coat the fried Wings and enjoy the heck out them with some Blue Cheese Dressing.
