1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups cut-up cooked chicken or turkey
1/3 cup thinly sliced celery
1/3 cup cut-up apples or grapes (I like both)
8 slices bread (your choice)
In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, chicken, celery, and grapes.
Serve on your favorite bread
4 pounds chicken wings
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup tomato-based hot pepper sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar-based hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1.Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill to a high heat. Lightly grease the grill.
2.Season wings with garlic powder and ground black pepper. Cook wings on the preheated grill until they are very crispy. Turn the wings frequently as they will burn easily.
3.While the wings are grilling, in a large bowl, combine both hot sauces with garlic powder, Parmesan cheese and melted butter.
4.When the wings are finished cooking, place them in the large bowl of hot sauce mixture and stir until they are coated.

Recipe for spaghetti and meatballs
Make meatballs. In a medium bowl, beat eggs lightly; add milk and bread and let stand for about 5 minutes. Add ground beef, onion, parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper; mix gently until well blended. Shape into about 24 meatballs, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place meatballs in a generously greased large shallow baking pan. Bake meatballs at 450° for 25 minutes.
In a Dutch oven, in hot oil over medium heat, sauté onion until tender and just begins to turn golden. Add remaining sauce ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning, adding more salt, if necessary. Add meatballs; cover and simmer 50 to 60 minutes longer, stirring from time to time.
Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
Serve spaghetti topped with meatballs in sauce; sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
Spaghetti and meatballs serves 6.
