(Skinny!) BBQ Baked Chicken Wings

Today’s post is a little ode to all things Oz. :)

First of all, let’s talk about my home sweet home in the Land of Oz — Kansas City! It’s no news that “there’s no place like home” for me when it comes to KC. I adore everything about living here — my amazing friends, my family, my loft, my neighborhood, my Chiefs, my church, my coffee shop, my favorite places to hang out, and of course, all of the amazing local restaurants we have here. But without a doubt, there’s no way you can live in Kansas City and also not develop an appreciation for all things BBQ.

Buffalo Chicken Salad

I am nearing the end of my first full week at home in…well…weeks. And it has been wonderful.

Without a doubt, getting to spend the majority of the summer on the road traveling to various places has been a complete privilege and a blast. After being in a job with hardly any vacation time — let alone travel — for 7 years, it has been a thrill to hop from place to place for work, and also to have the flexibility with self-employment to throw a few purely “vacation” trips to see friends and family in there. But I think I am learning that as much as I am a complete traveler at heart, I am also quite equally a homebody.

Margarita Chicken Fajitas + Calphalon Giveaway

For the beginning years professional life, I worked in a church, which automatically meant that I worked weekends. Seven years of weekends.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved my job there. But having every Saturday and Sunday automatically booked was tough, especially when the rest of the world and especially my friends were buzzing with energy of free time. Each weekend, I would try to squeeze in as much time with friends as I could before and after work. But more often than not, I found myself feeling distracted and rushed. And spontaneity was pretty much out of the question.

Sweet Potato Chip Chicken

I have to admit that I’ve never been a fried chicken girl, which I credit to my mom.

Growing up, we never owned a fryer. We never went to KFC. And even when my extended family went to the most famous fried chicken restaurant in Wichita, little 10-year-old me always ordered a big juicy steak, thankyouverymuch. (Midwestern through and through.)

Chicken and Asparagus Stir-Fry

In my wise old age, I have come to a realization about myself — I am terrible with due dates. Like, really terrible.

From library books, to movie rentals, even to turning in my taxes on time (which I at least mailed in this week at 4:50pm!), I have a pretty terrible track record of remembering to take care of things on time. This past weekend, when I was “spring cleaning” out my fridge, I realized the same holds true there. Eek. Let’s just say that I think I finally learned what happens to cilantro if it accidentally gets hidden at the back of the vegetable drawer for a month!
