Appetizer – Up, Up and Away Teriyaki Wings

Story behind the recipe – A: Zi decided to have a Super Bowl party and asked for
volunteers to cook. Z: I was thinking I'd order pizza and you bring three appetizers. A:
Your middle name is pizza. Z: Nope, steak medium-well. A: So, I brought two dishes. Z: I
always let you win. A: So kind of you. Z: (blows on his fingers and brushes them against his
chest) Just that sort of guy. A: Well, m'humble partner in literary ventures, you also
insisted on a dish that could fly. Z: I wanted you to expand your horizons, reach for the
stars, be inventive. (eyebrow wiggle moment) A: Sooo, I decided to bring a dish with
wings. Z: And I must say they did fly right off the plate and into me mouth!

What you’ll need – Z: I know this by heart. A: Cause you insisted on the recipe. Z: Give a
man a wing and you feed him for one party. Teach a man to cook wings and you feed him
for every party. A: A Zi proverb, eh? Z: I have a Chinese uncle twice removed on my
cousin's side. A: (blinks) Anyhootin, the recipe serves six.

Comments - Hide a few for yourself, otherwise, you won't get any. Yes, they are that

Blurb from STEEL EMBRACE - In the mist, haze, and shadows of the seashore, Elizabeth
seeks out the man who has haunted her dreams forever. Around her love vibrates within
others, couples from the youngest to the oldest, each providing a nugget of love’s truth
that aids her in her chase of Nathan Sterling. Yet, each time she catches Nathan, he seems
to slip away, making her wonder if her timing is off, if she was perhaps rushing what
destiny had promised. What she doesn’t realize is that her pursuit threatens to reveal a
dire truth… one that will change her forever after
