Lemon Mint Chicken Wings

1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon rind
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint, divided
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
48 chicken drumettes (about 4 1/2 pounds) or chicken wings
Cooking spray

Combine the lemon rind, lemon juice, olive oil, 1/4 cup chopped mint,
ground cumin, salt, black pepper, and minced garlic in a large bowl. Add
the chicken drumettes, and toss to coat. Cover the drumettes, and
marinate in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, tossing occasionally.

Preheat the broiler. Place half the drumettes on a broiler pan coated
with cooking spray, and broil for 15 minutes or until browned. Turn the
drumettes over, and broil for 10 minutes on the other side or until the
drumettes are done. Repeat the procedure with the remaining drumettes.
Sprinkle drumettes with the remaining 1/4 cup chopped mint before
serving (either hot or at room temperature). Makes 12 servings.

The October Country

This Saturday I am taking a week off of work and heading to South
Carolina to spend some time with my mother in Columbia. I’m going on my
own, which is a little unusual, but this is a chance for me and Mom to
reminisce and play some cut-throat games of Scrabble and look at old
photos. It also gives my sister and brother-in-law a chance to get over
to the coast to do some surf fishing and eat some good seafood. My
sister will probably avoid the fishing but may work on her paintings.
She has become a good artist and recently sold one of her paintings at a
show for a pretty nice sum. So my mother told me in one of her recent

On the way down I will be stopping over at Tim’s house on the lake in
North Carolina. It has been too long since I’ve seen him, and I will be
interested to see which part of the house he has torn apart in order to
make his “terminal” renovations. The lake should be beautiful his time
of year. I love to travel in the fall, when the trees are in their
autumn beauty, as the poet Yeats wrote in lines I think of every fall
from “The Wild Geese at Coole.”

THE TREES are in their autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry,
Under the October twilight the water
Mirrors a still sky;
Upon the brimming water among the stones          5
Are nine and fifty swans.

I will take the country roads through central Pennsylvania, first to
West Virginia and then into Virginia where I pick up the highway, with
the Blue Ridge mountains off to the east. Then through the rolling horse
country until I take the turn-off to Richmond and on through the
battlefields of the Civil War. It is all beautiful country, especially
in the October light.

product. Say what it is. We ask that you be specific about the qualities
you like or dislike without getting “long-winded.” We also ask you to
mention your city and state (or country) because all new products aren’t

While shopping in Walmart the other week, we found Wheat Thins Toasted
Chips with the crackers. They had two flavors, Little Italy Roasted
Garlic and Western Ridge Peppercorn Ranch. They have 40% less fat than
potato chips, so they are better for you. The garlic crackers are very,
very garlic-y. I really liked the peppercorn ranch flavor.


Thomas’ English Muffins, for a limited time, is selling Pumpkin Spice
English muffins. If you like pumpkin, you will love these.


Do You Remember?

Robert Parker 1966
Words and music by Robert Parker

Everybody get on your feet,
You make me nervous when you in your seat
Take off your shoes and pat your feet,
We're doin a dance that can't be beat
We're barefootin', We're barefootin',
We're barefootin', We're barefootin',

Went to a party the other night,
Long Tall Sally was out of sight
Threw way her wig, and her high sneakers too,
She was doin a dance without any shoes
She was barefootin', She was barefootin',
She was barefootin', She was barefootin',

Hey little gal with the red dress on,
I bet you can barefoot all night long
Take off your shoes and throw them away,
Come back and get them another day
We're barefootin', We're barefootin',
We're barefootin', We're barefootin',

Musical interlude

Lil John Henry he said to Sue,
If I was barefootin' would you barefoot too
Sue told John, "I'm thirty two,
I was barefootin ever since I was two
They was barefootin', they was barefootin'
They was barefootin'', we barefootin'
We barefootin' we barefootin'
We barefootin' we barefootin'
We barefootin' we barefootin'
We don't have no shoes on
