Several weeks back, I was under the impression that life would be fun and relaxing after the exams. I was wrong. Work on my dissertation has been more hectic than I expected. While I do enjoy the work I'm doing now (most of it anyway), my batteries are running flat.
And so, I'm taking a week off. Woohoo!! Will spending the weekend down south, golfing and perhaps trying my hand at Punting
When I get back, I'll be busy moving to a my new place, so no updates here for about a week I'm afraid.
I've been doing more experiments with chocholate. This time with chicken wings.
Wings are dirt cheap here. Which was a pleasant surprice when I found out. You can easily get 10 pieces for less than the price of a bus ticket.
Soaked the wings in some sweet/thick soya sauce and worchestershire sauce
. Let it sit in the fridge for several hours.
I sprinked chocholate powder
on two of the wings, and paprika
powder on the rest. In case one of it turns out horrid, at least I still had half a meal ;)
Under the grill they went.
When they were almost ready, I glazed the wings by 'painting' on a mixture of honey and olive oil.
Oh, and as a tribute to the "eggsperts
" for finally agreeing on an answer, I added an egg to complete the dish.
Some like it; some find it gross; many have never tried it.
I love it.
Well, if it's prepared my way anyway.
Here's a common version you find in most Fisn n' Chips shop here in Edinburgh - Jumbo Haggies fried in batter.
I'd split it in half, add some ketchup and mayonaise, a slice of cheese, and grilled for 3 minutes.
Yummy. I'm getting hungry all over again just thinking about it.
