Blue Apron: BBQ Glazed Chicken Wings with Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges and Creamy Cabbage Slaw

Yesterday was a lazy Saturday.  We lounged around before heading to the movies to see Baywatch.  It was a silly movie, but we had fun picking out some landmarks from Tybee Island, where it was filmed.  When we came home, we got to work on our dinner.  Mike prepped the produce while I got the oven preheated and prepared 2 pans by lining them with foil.  Once the oven was preheated, I put my chicken wings, which I had drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, into the oven.   I cooked them for about 22 minutes, until they were cooked through.  A few minutes later, I added in the sweet potato wedges, also covered with olive oil, salt and pepper.  They cooked about 15 minutes, flipping halfway through.  Meanwhile, we mixed together the cabbage, carrots, white part of the onions, mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt and pepper to make the slaw, allowing it to marinate. I mixed together a glaze of vinegar, ketchup, mustard, molasses, salt and pepper.  After the wings had roasted, I coated them in half of the glaze and cooked them another 5 minutes.  Next, I put them back in with all the glaze, tossing gently.  Then, it was time to eat.  I really liked the slaw and the wings,  but the potato wedges were just ok.  The potatoes almost needed to be sliced a little thinner to get crispier.  The slaw was a great mixture of sweet and sour and wasn't drenched in dressing.  The glaze on the wings was tangy and flavorful, without being spicy.  Overall, this was a great meal and we look forward to our next Blue Apron meal tonight.

 Dinner on the chipped plate (It's been chipped almost since we got it and I refuse to replace it because I like to give Mike a hard time.)
