....Salads For Frieda....

......Or Maybe Chicken Piccata?
As Always Rich and Junior did a Fabulous Job on Desserts!!Willie For Janice..............Junior For Dani!!!

On The Crab Count Front The Wizard pulls into an early lead with their first Offload in Dutch Tomorrow or Tuesday, while the other boats are still prospecting. (Go Team WIZARD!!!)
The Storm this week was a big, but not as serious as everyone feared. It was Fun for me though!!
SOMEONE left a pallet of bait on the back of their truck. Silly Silly!! It took the Eagles of the island about 10 seconds to notice and make short work of it....
The Waves this week were awesome, so I thought I would share some more of them.

AND Finally I will share the Recipie for Chicken Wings that I learned from Harrison Ford. This is GUARANTEED to bust up even the most stubborn of head colds and get you back to tasting your burning tongue.

First, Take your FROZEN Chicken wing sections and place them in an oiled baking dish while the over is preheating to 375 F.

Spray the Wings with An Olive oil cooking spray.

Dust with Cayane Pepper, Chili Powder, Crushed Red Pepper, Fresh Cracked Black pepper and Garlic salt.

Bake until skin is VERY crispy, turning once to get both sides nice and Golden Brown and crunchy. (Do not deep fry, this adds pointless calories and does not allow for the best flavor)

In a chafing dish on the range take one stick of butter (REAL BUTTER NO FAKE MARGARINE CRAP), 1/2 cup of Orange / Pineapple Juice, 1/4 cup of Dark brown Sugar, and 1 to 2 cups of Franks Red Hot Sauce. Heat mixture to boiling once then simmer till mixture just begins to thicken.

Place Wings in sauce on stove and allow to coat for 3-5 minutes.

Remove from Pan and serve with Slices of Bleu Cheese, Celery, and bleu Cheese Dressing.

These will be some of the most tender delicious wings you will ever eat. No Gnawing off the bones, the meat will fall off onto your tongue and the sweet spice will open you right up!! (Possible at both ends if you eat as many as you will be tempted to!!)

Hopefuly I will be able to get picture of the Wizard Offload Tomorrow!!

Have a Great Night Everyone

The food looks delicious as usual...french toast...was that roast beef that Junior was slicing...and lastly was that your Super Bowl wings??? I would love to be able to drive by and see a flock of eagles, what a majestic bird, I never tire of looking at them...

love you....

*Waves* Hi Junior...Hi Willie!

Awwwwwww Dante is precious! I know he is ready to see his new mommy, but Uncle CB will spoil him rotten while he is visiting DH! Brunch was fab as always! The wing recpie looks delish!
Looking forward to the off-load pics!

Now...just for you CB...
Shake your bon bon...shake your bon bon!

Mick Muise said...

Gawd, I am seriously considering flying to DH just for the french toast!

Akutan's April Dawn said...

you know that if I could get over there I would definately be joining for brunch, but unfortunately I'm a 4 hour boat ride (or 20 mins by plane) away! Thanks so much for spoiling Dante for me! We both know he needs it ;) Food looks great CB! I will definately try to see what else I can find to write about that can be fun and interesting ;) call you in the AM for a weather report! ;)

Kath said...

I'm a chicken piccata expert and that looks heavenly. As usual, the pictures are spectacular and thanks for welcoming me to my first official brunch.

Hi, CB! It's me, jagercrosbyswench but I can't remember my password. LOL!

Loving the food blogs! Yummy!

cookie dough said...

I saw the puppy, love the sweater and the ears too! He's not nearly as shaky as other little doggies too! My family wants a dog, but we leave too often.
Eating a smoked salmon roll-up in the ANC airport, I swear you can take me out of Unalaska...

Thanks for the pic of my handsome kid, I woke him up (no he hasn't heard of alarm clocks, 'jus mommy) but never actually opened my eyes!
I miss home and can think of nothing good about Fairbanks in FEB rooming with random classmates...pouting

Janice said...

Awww, you remembered to give me my "Willie Fix". Thanks! Thank Willie and Junior for being such good sports. And Dante is too cute for words. Praying for good weather so he can get home. The poor litle guy must be a little unnerved but Uncle CB will take care of him. It was serendipity that April started her blog and was able to connect with you- no such thing as a coincidence. Thanks for brunch.

Maskerade said...

Thanks for having us CB, brunch was heavenly as usual. If I were there, I'd be on the french toast like the eagles on that bait.

purrduedvm said...

Wow...this was one full post CB. Thanks for the great variety of shots and info today! Glad to hear the Wizard is having a good go of it. I love that French Toast...it's like having dessert BEFORE having dessert. AND your chicken wing recipe sounds something that will make hubby smile..so I WILL def try this!
And thanks for helping the little dog out in his time of need. Very kind of you. I agree with Janice - it is amazing how and when some people come into our lives. Pretty cool.

kate said...

The French Toast looks Heavenly! The Chicken Wing recipe is just what my son would love! Thank you.

Kim said...

AHHHH I cant let it sit at 13

Kim said...

K thats out of my system. Lovely brunch. I gained about 10 lbs just looking at the pic of the french toast. CB you rock! taking care of that cute little puppy for April Dawn! Love the blog btw! Great pics as usual. I cant wait to try that recipe for the hotwings.

Dani said...

All the food looks great...as always!! Desserts are looking great...if only I were there!!
Lol yea I will be on the next flight out, can't have junior feeling all alone. Dante is so cute, I would love to get another dog but I think I got enough animals as it is.
This weeks brunch is only over and already I cant wait till next weeks .

Fizz Wood. said...

mmmmm. brunch looked good today CB! one day i will have to come and try it for myself lol!
I have to say, your recipie sounds like just the thig for me! I can never taste the spice in "spicy" foods and am constantly being told i have the tastebuds of a gerbil because i add chilli etc to everything. maybe this one would be hot enough! :D

Miss said...

Thanks for the brunch it was excellent like always! Those eagle are impressive and beautiful. The chihuahua is so cute! I have one, he is tan and muscular, our little muscle man! Congrats to April Dawn.

Margrita said...

Awesome brunch as always. I love hot spicy chicken wings thanks for sharing that recipe.

Elizabeth Douglas said...

Hi Mel! Good shot of you! :D

CB, I didn't make it in for Brunch yesterday, I hope maybe there are a few left overs in the fridge...migraines are no fun. :(

YAY for the WIZARD!!! I'm glad they're coming in for an offload, big hugs to them! I'm hoping this trip was smooth sailing.

Those eagles are HUGE!

Bubbs said...

The bunch looks amazing as always. YUM!

It must be a site to be able to see the eagles close up. They aren't dumb birds either, haha!

cookie dough said...

haha good shot, LOL I had 4 layers of clothes on it's COLD in Fairbanks..I want to be home :(

jagercrosbyswench said...

Let's see if this works.

medic917 said...

Hi CB, I have been a "lurker" here and have very much enjoyed your blog. Thank you for entertaining me! I will try the wings as I have had a cold that just will not give up for almost a week now. Always interested in recipes, especially for crab!..
