Holy Mole! Could that have been a lamer pun?! Maybe, but the point is that these Orange Chocolate Chili Chicken Wings along with mole sauce are a Super Bowl touchdown! (I'm really bringing the cheese today. Must be the strict 100% Paleo Challenge month that we're doing right now.) Holley really nailed this chicken wing recipe, and you wouldn't believe how perfect they are with the Paleo Chocolate Mole Sauce recipe she created.
There is sooooo much going on in life right now that I don't even know what to share exactly. 2016 is shaping up to be as exciting as I'd hoped (just waiting for the money to start lining my pockets. I'll buy a lotto ticket today when I buy more chicken wings – seriously these Orange Chocolate Chili Chicken Wings with the spicy chocolatey mole sauce are blowing my mind. Editing the photos and writing about them is torture. I want more now!)!
I've got big plans to change the appearance of The Primal Desire site (which will also result in more articles instead of just recipes, and man! I'm excited about the ideas I have!); I have high hopes for improved health (just started a new therapy for my feet injury); e-recipe books will be available this year; I am excited to get in better shape; Holley said she's going to make me go on dates this year (though I'm worried that she will turn The Primal Desire into a personal dating site for each of us haha); we just got back from a trip to Cuba together which was a ton of fun and very educational (we'll be sharing more about that in the relatively near future); ZOOLANDER 2 comes out next week (I have something special to share for that…)…. It seems like that's only half of what's ripping through my mind right now.
I'm excited. Excited about this year. Can you tell? The words just don't come fast enough. I need like a dozen more Raj's to do everything I want right now! Oh man! I didn't even talk about the food!!! I am so excited to share with you the creations that are coming this year!
So, yeah. Busy busy and excited about it! And excited about Orange Chocolate Chili Chicken Wings and Paleo Chocolate Mole Sauce for Super Bowl Sunday!
