What’s for Dinner Wednesday :: Sunday Supper!

2 Feb

Sundays in our home are pretty relaxed and low key.  We attend church, have lunch, then everyone takes naps…myself included in recent weeks.  I am usually not a ‘napper’ but I’ll tell you…happy nappy’s make momma happy!

My husband was in the mood for wings on Saturday so I thought I would try something alittle different.  I like to try new foods…my husbands likes to stick with what he knows he likes.  Boring…

I am working on him.

I took a chance and decided to try Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Wings with a Roasted Corn and Jalapeno Penne salad.

It was delicious.

I wish I could say I came up with the recipes myself…but I didn’t.

Our grocery store has in-house chefs who make all different types of food with gourmet sauces.  They were cooking up wings with the Raspberry Chipotle and a few other things.

I bought the Raspberry Chipotle around Christmas time to serve as an appetizer with cream cheese but we never used it.  (We used Pineapple Mango Haberno…delish.)

Also a few weeks ago, Sweet P and I tried their Jalapeno Penne salad…and she convinced me we had to make it.

And since it was in the 70′s in Texas on Sunday…we started the grill and had a really delicious and easy Sunday Supper….together.

Start with:

Roasted Corn (with olive oil, sea salt, and garlic)

roasted corn

Toss with whole wheat penne pasta:

Toss in jalapeno sauce…used about 1/4 cup and added a few tablespoons of sour cream (original recipe called for mayo…but I am not a fan of the may-o-nasty)

jalapeno pepper dip

Mix together with fresh herbs…I used parsley

Next up…grill chicken wings (free range!) and toss with Raspberry Chipotle sauce:

It says hot pepper but it is definitely more sweet than spicy…my kiddos both love it

chicken wings bbq tailgate wings superbowl food sweet spicy

And there you go…

We had fresh fruit salad on the side….and a chilled glass of Moscato with a splash of fresh squeezed orange.

Check out your grocery store’s speciality sauces.  Or you can find Roberts Reserve online here.  I really love their products because they are all-natural and many are gluten free.

Happy Wednesday, friends!
