Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks

Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks

A few months ago, I sent Yuseff an e mail at work asking what he wanted to eat for dinner. He replied with a picture of something that looked extremely complicated, but also unbelievably delicious: So, obviously there was no way we weren’t having Bacon-Wrapped Drumsticks for dinner.
