Welcome, By-Godders, to the Shotgun/Throwdown, brought to you today by Milwaukee's Best. That makes a baker's dozen.
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. We're so glad you could attend. Come inside! Come inside! (That's what she said) Sorry, I sometimes get songs in my head and can't get them out (I think most people do) and this one happened to be semi-appropriate. Anyway...when the Krag brings his little birdies in tomorrow, keep your AA's, C's and D's to yourself (we have a new rep to uphold....riiiiigghhht) and enjoy the atmosphere and game. Have a great weekend and keep your eyes open for tips and requests. See the show...

Tailgate Recipe of the Week:
Cardinals = birds = wings....at least that's my reasoning this week.
B.D.'s Grilled Hot Wings
Take a bag of thawed wings (or fresh drummets) rinse (don't pat dry) and place in a zip lock bag. (You want to make several bags for easy handling).
Pour in 1 to 2 bottles of Paul Newman's Own Olive oil & Vinegar.
Add 1 heaping Tbs. of chopped "Old El Paso" green chilies. Mix well.
Remove as much air as possible and seal. Marinade for 2 hrs. Turn every so often.
For the sauce melt 1/2 stick of unsalted butter in a glass sauce pan.
Mix together and pour into sauce pan:
½ to 3/4 bottle of Louisiana Habanero sauce
1 to 2 Tbs. of Thai Garlic Chili Pepper Sauce
1 to 2 Tbs. of Cajun Sunshine Hot sauce
1 to 2 Tbs. of Cholula Hot Sauce
Just heat enough to melt the butter and simmer the hot sauces. Remove wings from marinade, (discard) and grill on med. heat for 45 min's. Turning wings every ten min's. Remove from grill. Place wings in a large bowl and pour warm sauce over wings tossing with thongs to coat.

A while back, someone mentioned that today's beauty should be Miss Throwdown every day. I wouldn't argue that she doesn't deserve that honor. I just have to keep the variety going. Possessor of some of the greatest legs on the planet (and gorgeous from head to toe)......here's Blake Lively.
