This past weekend, we celebrated my husbands birthday. It was our second annual "Chicken Wing Cook Off". It was such a hit last year that we had to go even BIGGER this year! More people, more chicken, more competition!
Here is how it all went down...
Guests were asked to bring their "Prize Winning" wings (and their favorite beverage of course).
There were 3 categories:
I provided the sides: rolls, this awesome coleslaw, this amazing corn salad, and plenty of carrots, celery and blue cheese dip!
Text messages were flying on the day of the competition. Everyone was claiming to have the prize winning wings.
The house was decorated with numerous chickens that I had recruited from family and friends. Here are a few....
Every table had a jar full of wet-naps to help clean off their messy fingers.
As guest entered, I had a table that gave instructions. Guests were to choose a wing number, grab some numbered toothpicks, and fill out the name tag for their wings.
All of the wings were set out for the competition with their name tags and numbered toothpicks.
The competition was on....
Glenn, the reigning champion from the previous year wore the Golden Apron.
Toothpicks were used to mark which number each wing was (something we learned was necessary from the previous year)
The birthday boy enjoyed every second of the tasting.
The debates were heated!
Why did the chicken cross the road?.... to avoid this wing-off!
The votes were in
The tallies were counted
The award ceremony began....
The "MOST UNIQUE" went to the....... Chicken-Wing Dip
The "HOTTEST WINGS" was .......... a tie! (sorry, no pictures of these winners for some reason)
AND THE WINNER OF THE MOST PHENOMENAL WINGS WAS..............
The SWEET MENNOS!
She is now a proud owner of a Chicken Wing Jump Drive, a pint of beer, and the Golden Apron!
Till next year....
