Football Season=Chicken wings, any doubt??

Summer means a lot of fun; this doesn’t mean that all the fun comes to an end with the start of winter, fun still continues. Often winter is referred to as the season of hibernation, but I totally disagree with this. How could someone undergo hibernation when there are numerous indoor activities to do and enjoy. I love winter as much as I love summer. Winter season always wakes up the artistic Me, I get the motivation and interest to do a lot of crafty stuffs, from glass painting to flower making, I will be seen indulged in these crafts throughout the winter…Am I hibernating during winter?? Heck no.

Another thing, which makes winter exciting, is that this is the football season as well. Being football fanatics, my husband and I love-watching most of the games. On weekends we always have friends come over to our place and all you can hear is the guys cheering, screaming and shouting, while watching the game. This continues till the big game, Super bowl. Just watching the game sitting on the couch makes it real boring, but when there is some activity going on in your mouth as well, makes it interesting. One food everyone looks forward to while watching the game is undoubtedly “Chicken wings”. I love chicken wings as much as the guys love it. Often, my husband warns me by saying this, ‘chicken wings are for men, not for women; with my eyebrows raised I will continue to devour it, I couldn’t give a better reply than this. But I have to agree with him at times, this is definitely a guilt stuffed food. So to make this football season, guilt free and healthy I baked my chicken wings. There are gazillion ways of seasoning the chicken wings, so this time I seasoned the chicken wings with the things that are always found in our refrigerator/pantry.

So for this football season, you don’t have to give up chicken wings for the sake of health, you could devour this Baked Glazed Chicken wings.
