Thank you for reading!


  1. “Boys soccer team to eat 1500 hot wings in one sitting”

    They should have made it a huge Deathmatch, would’ve been a lot more interesting to watch.

    Tomatoes in wing sauce???

  2. @Defcon – yes tomatoes. Heresy? Perhaps! But I’d try it. Wish the chef was more specific.

  3. Marilyn & Brian- have you guys tried either one of Joe Perry’s new sauces? I was thinking of maybe trying the Mango Peach Tango. Hank Williams Jr. has a red jalapeno hot sauce too that sounds good. I’ve never tried a sauce made by a celebrity, lol, but it sure does make it interesting. I can’t find very many reviews on them.
