Expensive chicken.

Postby Ron Evers » Dec 16, 2008 1:24 pm

I am so old I can remember chicken wings were only considered suitable for making stock. Now they are often the most expensive cut of chicken. I got a bag of wings this morning @ half price & cut off the tips for stock & the rest for baking. Even @ half price the cost of what you see here is 20¢ a piece.

Never did like wings . . too much fuss for the little bit of meat you get.

Laura,

That's just how my husband feels about chicken wings! The children and I love bbq'd chicken wings; I usually have to buy enough to fill a large baking pan. Hubby eats something else on those nights.

Ron,

Those look really yummy. I know Jeanne had something else for supper, so did you freeze the remainder, or will it become a midnight snack?

Ron, 20 cents doesn't sound like a lot for a snack treat. You can't even get a chocolate bar or a cookie for that price anymore. They do look yummy!

so, when are you going to write your "Old Geezer's Cookbook" ?

Donna, I will freeze the remainder for another time.

TB, I guess that would have to be a half price cook book. :P

no matter the cost. If it has your pic on it, (for genu-osity of course) and your recipes inside, I will buy it.
