Chef Lance

We have had good success with our new plan of the kids each choosing one healthy meal each week that they would like to eat. Somehow that magic power of choice makes them magically eat as well. I decided to go up a level and have them cook that meal. Here is Lance with his favorite honey molasses barbeque drumsticks. It is an easy marinade that we just throw on the grill. As supper was served humble Lance said, "I don't hear anyone THANKING me!" Everyone gobbled them up gratefully.

Lance mixing up his marinade and drumsticks.

Here is the recipe for the marinade:

6 drumsticks, skin removed
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. honey
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp mustard
1/2 c. molasses
2 garlic cloves, minced
some olive oil
salt and pepper
cracked red pepper
