Fall means football - and of course food just goes hand in hand with the game. 

This Sunday night, only my hubby was home for the game.  He requested very basic "football snacks."

Of course that means chicken wings.  These are buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing. 

Nachos are another football staple.


And we always have chip n' dip.  Hidden Valley Ranch dip is the guy's favorite. 

These basics are kind of boring to me.  But my hubby was happy, and that works for me.

The Patriots didn't win this week, but the food sure did!

Baked Buffalo Wings
20 chicken wings
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. Pete's Buffalo Wing Sauce
Tabasco Sauce
Cut tips off chicken wings, then split wings in two.  (This is not easy and requires a sharp knife, buy wings already split if you can).  Put wings in large bowl.
Mix together flour and spices.  Pour over chicken wings.  I put a piece of plastic wrap over top of bowl, turn upside down and shake to coat chicken. 
Put in fridge for 1 hour.
Line baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 400.
Mix together melted butter, buffalo sauce, and a few dashes of tabasco.
Dip wings into butter sauce and place on baking sheet.
Bake for 35 minutes, turn over, and bake for another 15-20 minutes to desired crispness. 
Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery.
