I love me some wings! We have a turkey deep fryer that we used for Thanksgiving and since there is so much costly leftover oil, I keep it around and fire it up a few more times. Most of those coincide with football watching and fried finger foods. This was a deviation from classic buffalo or garlic parm which we have made before and as much as I love good ol hot buffalo I welcomed some new flavors. This recipe was cool since it uses fresh ingredients like ginger and garlic. I made it twice and achieved more of a thick sticky glaze the second time around and no dipping sauce was needed.

Good ol cliche Pad Thai. What can I say, it is darn good despite being the most cliche and possibly Americanized Asian dish. Eileen is much more skilled in Asian cuisine (Curry is one of her specialties) than I am but I was inspired to give this old favorite a try. I looked up some recipes and sort of used them as a basis and tailored it to my taste.

I have always loved fried rice but have never had too much success with it at home the few times that I tried. This time went much better with a spicy shrimp version!

We were heading to a family Labor Day cookout and decided on this cold sesame noodle salad. I guess it’s not the most American dish for Labor Day, but it worked out just fine.
Cook the noodles and run them under cool water. Then toss with sesame oil and set aside until the sauce is ready. The sauce was a blended combination of many ingredients that was then tossed with the cool noodles.
The base seasonings headed for the blender
Can be a little fluffy at first but will settle
These did not go into the blender, but were tossed with the noodles and sauce.

Sauce is here!
Once the sauce is prepared, veggies are chopped, and noodles are cooked and cooled, combine all ingredients and chill before serving.
The colder the better
