Hi my name is Marcella Rose Sciotto and I am addicted to hot wings.
I know that they aren’t good for me; I know that they are battered and fried and they are covered in butter. In most of the establishments where I order these wings, I am almost positive that the chicken is not coming from a place that I would be proud to support. These little wings were most likely treated with antibiotics and growth hormones and the chickens who owned these “wings” before I bought them, were stuck in a cage for most of their lives because (let’s face it) I am not ordering hot wings at a farm-to-table restaurant; they are generally not on the menu at those kind of restaurants… (Seriously, someone needs to look into that; hot wings with a conscience! What more could anyone want?) I know that dipping something that has already been battered and fried and covered in butter and sauce in yet another fat heavy mayonnaise and cheese based sauce is probably the worst idea and that the three carrot and celery sticks that are served alongside these little wings do amusingly little to give me enough fiber to do anything productive with the horrifyingly delicious things I just ate.
I know all of these things and yet I still order and devour and try to forget.
What I am saying is, “I have a problem with hot wings.” There I said it! They say admitting it is the first step but whoever they are, they are not a blogger. If they were, they would say that the next step is finding a delicious, nutritious alternative and blogging about it!
