  1. I made chicken drumsticks today too (sticky Asian themed marinade and basted while being oven baked) but other than sprinkling some sesame seeds over the top … well, they were kind of plain. Certainly, they didn’t have cute little ‘booties’ to keep the diner’s hands clean. 🙂

    Very nice assortment of dips.
