Bluegrass Bites

Tailgating is soon! Yippee! I found a great wing recipe that I am going to try this year.

3 pounds chicken wings (about 16)
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup whiskey
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Thin orange wedges and pineapple slices as a garnish (optional)

1. In a foil lined 15 x 10x1 lined baking pan arrange the wings in a single layer. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
2. For sauce in a slow cooker stir together butter, syrup and whiskey. Add wings, stirring to coat.
3. Cover and cook on low heat setting for 4 hours or on high heat setting for 2 hours.

Here are some photos from 2 seasons ago (I did not tailgate last year because I was to sick and pregnant!) My husband is making his favorite drink "Hammer" he discovered it in college at Two Keys. White Grape Juice +Vodka=hangover. But, he loves it!

This year is bittersweet since it's our last Fall in KY. At least for a while...

Fall in KY

I could not help myself! Had to order these for Sidney for Keeneland and football. I can't wait for them to arrive! Found both at Best Dressed Child. I wanted the UK smocked dress but I had to stop myself!

Many of you know ,Craig got accepted into a fellowship program at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, TX. We are beyond excited for the wonderful opportunity. But, I am a little nervous about the size. Three million people? Really? Deep breath. We are visiting for a week in September and I am looking forward to exploring the city.We are going to meet with a realtor to look at some different areas, go to an Astros game and enjoy some much needed time with each other. I can't wait!

Connor the very hungry caterpillar!

Sidney went to her first birthday party! Her friend, Connor was turning one. Jennifer threw such a cute party! What a great idea. We had a fun time and got to see lots of friends. I can't wait to throw birthday parties for Sidney. But, I don't want her to grow up!

The cake, cookies and decorations were all "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" themed, which is one of my favorite children's books.

Happy Birthday sweet Connor!

I got to meet Ellie and Lyla!

Sidney and her little buddy, Caroline Herrington

Is he not the cutest thing? Even his outfit has a caterpillar!
