Your friends can help you overcome any low point you face in life. So celebrate those friends like a cherished treasure you hold dear. Like I have said is it no wonder we find comfort in food, it is Friday lets indulge in a little of both for this Happy Hour what do you say?
"The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all." - Walt Disney Company
Another week down and we have pretty much come through it unscathed. I once heard "life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance." I think we danced with Steve this week, he didn't sign on to be a chef, though he did rise to the occasion. I am thinking now we should probably have a challenge between Steve and Danny, an Iron Chef style cook-off to see who is the master of his culinary domain. Though, is it me or is there a little something familiar about the Chairman, can't quite put my finger on it.
Oh but I do digress, it is as we all know Friday, and McCargo does need to end this week with his own little celebration. Though some may not have recovered from yesterday, I hope those ladies are on their feet for later, cause rumor has it, there is a party at the McGarrett house.
The theme for Happy Hour is Hawaiian, from the cocktail to the food. Though the punch may be an old inspiration the food is inspired by the flavors of the island.
Spicy Hawaiian Style Chicken Wings
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine Cayenne, salt, coriander and 5-spice powder. Toss wings with dry spices and let rest for 15 minutes.
- In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients; reserve.
- Arrange chicken wings in a single layer in baking dish and bake for 10 minutes (or you may grill on med/high for 10-12min), then brush with some reserved sauce. Turn wings over, brush with more sauce.

Harriet van Horne said "Cooking is like making love, you do it well, or you do not do it at all”. You be the judge and let
Commander McGarrett know how he did. As for me, I would have to say he has performed quite well. Oh it is cocktail time, have a great weekend everyone!
