    Hi Caitlin. I came across your blog, and I was inspired by the way your words come alive as I read them. Good job. I’m a mom of several teenagers. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was conducting a google search for baking drumsticks with thighs attached – 375 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour. Now that I’ve found the answer, I’ve got to get driving so I’m tempted to leave the oven on while picking up kids, returning in an hour. Time. Time is always slipping through my fingertips, just like how my dream to write about this life slips through my brains. Thanks for your words.
