Mmm…chicken wings in America are really good.
I’m in Washington, D.C. for work at the moment. I was recently chatting with an American friend on Twitter about barbecue food and she mentioned chicken wings. I love chicken wings. As much as I am a ‘thigh man’, chicken wings are fantastic. The meat is always tender and sweet and it’s relatively easy to get the skin to be nice and crispy.
I thought I would take the opportunity while I am in the USA to try some barbecue chicken wings.
I ordered some from the room service menu. They arrived hot and smelled really good.
Unfortunately, the room lighting was poor. I had all the incandescent lamps on and in a dark room the yellow cast was very pronounced.
The wings were good. The skin was crispy, salty and sweet with a little tang. The meat was moist, tender and soft enough to be sucked off the bone. The serving size was also generous. I forgot to add the blue cheese sauce into the photograph. My friend asked if I had some. Indeed I did.
I’d happily eat these again.
I also ate a nice ribeye steak with the bone in last night.
I’m developing a real liking for Mac and cheese with my main meals
I went to another place with colleagues and enjoyed a nice pork chop with Brussels sprouts cooked with bacon and a side of Mac and cheese. That was really nice.
I spent a little time at the Capitol building and got to sit in and watch a couple of senators make speeches on national security.
