A Little Heat and a Lot of Sweet


by Fran Rizer

My younger son Adam has written something I'm very proud of. (Remember my last blog was about prepositions.  I'm ending that sentence with "of" on purpose.)  This piece of writing could net him a substantial financial prize of  $5,000 which is a little more than most of us made from our first authorific efforts.

Adam has written a recipe, not for a cozy, but for a competition.  It's one of the eight finalists in the Wild Wing Cafe Battle of the Bones contest.  Wild Wings Cafes are located in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.  

You can help him win even if you don't live in one of those states. I'll share how you can assist wherever you are after you take a look at the contest info.   







                       


First, let me clarify that the "online" voting mentioned above confused me, and since I once wanted to be an investigative reporter, I called their corporate office and checked.  Online voting refers to stating your opinion by email but will not be included in the tally to determine the winner.

Votes which count are only those made in a Wild Wing Cafe. Anyone who orders the ten-piece wings of their choice will be given a sample of the two competitors for that week and a ballot on which they can vote their preference. If your server doesn't offer the ballot, ask for it.

What if you don't live in a town with a Wild Wing Cafe?  The other way you can help Adam win this is to post it on your Facebook (preferably every day January 6 -12, 2014).  Chances are that some of your friends are in one of the Wild Wings states and will either try Adam's Bulgogi Wings or pass the information on to more and more people through their Facebook listings.

Whether Adam wins or not, I'm proud that his recipe is one of the eight finalists out of over two hundred and fifty entries.

Until we meet again… eat wings and take care of you!

Congrats to Adam for getting this far, and I wish him all the luck in winning! I will share as I have family in several of those states--the Dean clan will be alerted!

AWESOME! I looked at the list of wings in the battle and thought, "Bulgogi!?! That's the one I'd probably choose. I LOVE Bulgogi!" Then I looked more closely at your blog and realized that was the one Adam had come up with. Fantastic, Fran!

Do you know if Wild Wings Cafe is related to Buffalo Wild Wings? We have the latter here in Scottsdale, but not the former.

Thanks to David and Dixon for your support. No, Dixon, they're not related. Rick and I went there for lunch and the Bulgogi were very much like when Adam does them at home. They had said they might "adapt" recipes to restaurant use if necessary, but I think his are straight by his recipe.
I was, however, disappointed that we had to ask for the Battle of the Bones flyer and ballots.

Yowza! Wings just opened in Santa Fe. I'll go down and ask for a ballot. (Oh, do I actually have to like his recipe? LOL.)
