This weekend, I will only respond when being referred to as “Mother of Dragons, First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, and Breaker of Chains.”
Who is excited about Game of Thrones on Sunday? I can’t wait. With much anticipation, we will gather with friends and family on Sunday for our last session opener.
Don’t fret. I have some great recipes to help us bid farewell to our favorite show. They are great for any watch party, and perfect to help us reflect on our favorite GOT moments.
Mother of Dragon Wings
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- Garlic power
- The New Primal Mild Buffalo Sauce
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 10 Chicken Wings – I prefer the Trader Joe’s brand
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine the olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large, resealable bag; seal and shake to combine. Add the chicken wings; reseal and shake to coat. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet.
- Cook the wings in the preheated oven for 1 hour, until crisp and cooked through.
- While wings are cooking, melt ghee on stove.
- Combine ghee with The New Primal Mild Buffalo Sauce. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl.
- When wings are finished cooking, coat wings in sauce.
- Serve and enjoy!
Game of Scones
- 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 6 tablespoons butter – chopped
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 3 scallions chopped
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup milk, cream, sour cream, or ricotta cheese
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Work in the butter with your fingers to make mixture.
- Toss in the cheese and scallions.
- Mix together the eggs and cream (or dairy of your choice); and the mustard. Add to the dry ingredients, stirring just until everything is evenly moistened; the dough will be very sticky.
- Pat the dough into a 10″ x 2″ rectangle. For larger, flatter scones, pat into a 15″ x 3″ rectangle.
- Cut the rectangle into 5 squares; then cut each square in half diagonally, to make a total of 10 triangular scones.
- Place the scones on the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake the scones for 20 to 23 minutes, until they’re nicely browned.
