One Dish Delish: Caribbean BBQ Drumsticks

I can’t figure out how to spell Carribbean. Is it two RR’s or one B or two of everything or one of everything? Spell check is spotty over here. The other day I typed “my head is fryed” and it didn’t even get the red squiggly notification underneath the sentence. Horror. The sentence,  not the spellcheck. Why was I even WRITING that?

So, we ready for another One Dish Delish? Girrrrrlfriendz. This one is easy. It’s so easy. And my kids were like all “corn on the cob in FEBRUARY? And I was like “I’m so excited my head is fryed.”

Oh yeah, that’s why I was writing it.

Since all of American appears to enjoy the step-by-step blog photos,  I have here the ingredient lineup. It’s not quite as exciting as a police lineup, but we can make it such. Imagine that onion up there saying, “My head is fryed” and you’ll be well on your way to internal entertainment. Or whatever you call it when you make up your own inside joke and are the only person that knows it. You’re so funny-cool like that.

Okay, so seriously scrump…you make this buttery BBQ sauce, all speckled with Jerk Seasoning and such, then drizzle it over chicken drumsticks, green beans, and your life.  Notice there I was going to say “head” which would then be a horrid segway to yet another reference to “my head is fryed” but we’ve gone and taken that too far. You can’t say I don’t protect you from bad cliches. Or whatever it is when you have an inside joke that’s gone too far.

Bake and serve, baby. That’s One Dish Delish. The sexy new twist on casseroling. Rowr.

Dig in. Bite big. Fry your head.
