Cherry Zinfandel Wings

Seeing how this is my first year being married to a farmer, I am finding I have a lot to learn about farm life.

For instance, in the spring when it is time for seeding, rain is bad. Rain makes the tractors and drills get stuck and seeding gets delayed. I made the mistake of saying out loud how happy I was that it rained one day because that meant Dusty got the day off. All the farmers and long-time farmers wives in the room turned and looked at me like I was crazy. What? I haven't had a day off with my husband in weeks!?!? Like I said, I have a lot to learn.

Over the past weeks, it started to feel like I never saw Dusty anymore unless it was when he was getting up to seed at 6:00 am or going to bed from a long day of seeding at 11:00 pm at night. I was missing my hubby big time.

Dusty would come home from seeding at 11 o'clock at night, when I'm in bed sleeping because I had to be up at 4:45am for work the next morning. He would come in saying, "So what's for dinner." And half asleep I'd say, "whatever you make yourself!" Therefore, Dusty ate a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches and chips with salsa for dinner the past weeks.

The food blogger and wife part of  me was feeling really sorry for him, especially after such long days on the tractor. So out of desperation to spend time with my hubby and make sure he got a good meal at a decent hour, I decided to take meals out to him on the tractor and ride with him while we both ate our dinner together.

I'm so glad I did because it's really fun seeing Dusty in action and learning all  that goes into farming. Plus, there is nothing more romantic and sweeter than sitting on your farmers lap, sharing a meal at sunset, riding a tractor through Gods country.

These slow roasted chicken wings are perfect for busy nights when everyone isn't going to home at the same time. For instance, I made the wings and ate them around 7pm and the other wings left over continued to slow roast in the crock pot and get more delicious by the time Dusty came home from his last night of seeding at 9:00pm.

I absolutely LOVE the Cherry Zinfandel Grill Sauce that these wings are roasted with because it is tangy, sweet, savory and it even has a  touch of heat that makes for the perfect wing. Serve these wings with a big green salad with Vidalia Onion Dressing and a big slice of buttered Beer Bread to make your loved ones tummy happy after a long day of work!
