Same here… meatballs, marinara, and French bread sandwich.
It got messy and ended up needing a knife and fork.

Okay, well I tried the air fry feature of my new oven on chicken wings at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. They weren't terrible, nice and juicy, but nowhere near as good as my Mom's baked wings. So, I doubt I'll do that again.

And I never buy frozen fries, so I didn't know that the package said to do them in a conventional oven. I did them in my convection toaster oven. Good! I may try air frying real fries at some point.

Lee I've noticed a lot of packaged frozen foods now have air fryer directions as well as oven.
I love your dinner. It all looks delicious 😋

They look real good. Were they crispy?

Somewhat, on top. Not on the bottom.

Lora, the fries bag gave air fryer directions, but the oven manual said to do packaged frozen food in a conventional oven. Maybe countertop air fryers are different.

I'm having a hard time finding any recipes online for oven air fryers. Must be a new thing.

Kathy, THESE are my absolute favorite wings to make! Nothing else I've ever done has compared.

Thank you, that I can understand. If the opportunity presents itself I will give it a go. 👍
The flavor is sweet. The texture is different. Shrimp is a piece. Lobster tail is a piece. Lobster body is different texture than tail. It is less solid and more "'stringy", if that makes any sense. Crab texture is more like that. But the flavor is sweeter than lobster. Sweet like shrimp, but texture like Lobster body.

Looks good! 😁

I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting crab. Ever. What’s that stuff taste like? 🤔
Dungeness crab (which is specific to the cold waters of the Pacific from Alaska to California) are the BEST. The meat is just sweet enough. The meat is tender and sooo delicious! I've tried blue crab and am not a fan. If you want to try crab, don't let your first time be canned! 🤢
