Adam made an easy meat dish that is well liked.

The chicken wings were so good! Jessica doubled the recipe but next time I think we need to triple it!!
Jessica's Teriyaki Chicken Wings Flour Package of drummettes (approximately 14) 1/3 c soy sauce ½ c granulated sugar ½ tsp garlic powder 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Measure 1-2 cups of flour and put in paper or plastic bag. Rinse drummettes in cool water. Place drummettes 3 or 4 at a time in the bag. Seal and shake until chicken is flour coated. Tap off extra and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375F for 35-45 minutes.
While chicken is baking, mix soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder and sesame seeds in a small bowl. Adjust sugar and soy sauce to taste.
When chicken is done, remove from oven and let cool. Stir sauce again. Roll each drummette in the sauce and place on serving plate. Pour excess sauce over the plate of wings.
The muffins were really good too. They were gone right away!
Cheesy Muffins ½ c butter, softened 2/3 c sugar 2 eggs 2 c flour 2 tsp baking powder 1 c milk 2 c grated cheddar or jack cheese
Cream butter and sugar with fork until smooth. Add eggs and stir until well blended. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Stir so baking powder is evenly distributed. Measure the milk. Stir a little milk into the butter mixture. Stir a little of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Repeat adding small amounts of milk and flour to the butter mixture until they are all mixed together. Add cheese and mix. Fill each muffin cup about 2/3 full. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Makes about 20-24 muffins.
Tonight we went to the high school for Jessica to be measured for her graduation gown.
She had to check the spelling of her name for the diploma. This is Jessica with a couple of friends from Ignite Club.
Looking over the stuff for sale on the senior table. I ordered and paid for her announcements, name cards and a senior necklace for her. I pay for that plus the senior photos and open house. In addition I give the high school kids $150 for misc school expenses. The rest is on them. You can easily spend $2,000 on yearbook, senior trip (Orlando), ring, shirts, backpacks, class supplies, club dues, club shirts and on and on.
Jessica chose to buy a class shirt. It's kind of cute becasue she's the class of '10.
