Glazed Drumsticks

Glazed Drumsticks



2 packages of chicken drumsticks, about 10 to 12 in each package
1 1/2 Tbs cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ginger
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup of water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place drumsticks in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Bake, turning once, for 30 minutes.  Mix the remaining ingredients into a
saucepan.  Cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils.  About 3 minutes.
Brush part of the sauce over the drumsticks.  Continue baking the chicken, turning and
brushing several times with the sauce until the chicken is done and richly glazed.  If you
like more glaze on your chicken, double the sauce recipe.   Enjoy!

Grandma Nellie Moore Avery Banfield







Grandma Nellie Moore Avery Banfield

Above is the article in the Sunday Commerce Paper Newspaper of March 7, 1976.  http://www.coca-colacompany.com/history/2009/10/spotlight-on-the-world-of-cocacola-betty-and-elaine.html




When my grandmother was 16, she modeled for Coca Cola.  She told us the hat she wore in her image on the tray cost her $6.00.  Her dress was $20.00.  Both were expensive back in 1921.  Above is a newspaper article from 1976.

My daughter, Kristen gave me this tray for my birthday.  She put the Coca Cola coaster of grandma at the bottom corner and made the beautiful flowers at the top opposite corner.  I added the Graphic 45 Place in Time paper embellishments along with images of grandma.
