I have discovered this week:
*I'm slowly losing my resistance - it’s about time for me to get a smartphone…like one where you can actually whatsapp people the photos you've taken throughout the day or navigate yourself out of being lost in the city.
*Purple is so not in at the moment. I have struggled like never before to find a purple bridesmaid dress!
*The last thing I want to do after a long day at work is to come home and sit in front of the computer…I feel terrible about the emails to be sent and comments to be replied...
*The very first frangipani flower appeared on our balcony...aloha!
*It’s now February…no more excuses for putting things off just because “it’s still the beginning of the year.”
*I am supposedly chronically allergic to peanut butter and milk (according to a recent blood test). I wonder if I’d puff up if I have a peanut butter milkshake!
*This flavour combo – Korean Pepper paste with Sesame, Asian pear and Garlic is kinda amazing on my palate.
Remember the McCormick Flavor Forecast I posted a few weeks back, where I told you how I really wanted to try this flavour combo?
It's garlicky, peppery, slightly hot, sweet...and juicy (from the pear!)
Totally Tuesday night kinda food as you repeatedly wonder why it's not even half way through the week yet. It sure feels like a Friday to me!
Just mix together the Korean pepper sauce, garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, and a bit of sesame oil into a bowl.
Toss the wings/drumsticks into the marinade and refrigerate for 30 minutes (the longer the better!)
(I'm feeling uneasy putting photos up of uncooked chicken as this is mostly a flour-butter-eggs-sugar kinda blog...)
Bake (then grill, which I didn't) and enjoy!
I can see why people love this flavour combo! The juicy sweetness from the pear along with the garlicky Korean pepper sauce causes some serious finger licking actions until you find yourself with an empty plate in front of you on a feels-like-a-Friday Tuesday night!
Hurry up weekend. Come already!
