For my first inspiration driven post, I decided to make something for Mr. H. BBQ sauce has never been something I’ve been fond of. I never considered it worthy of my taste buds and never thought I would have to. Then I fell for a man who absolutely loves BBQ and BBQ sauce as a primary accessory to chicken (and ribs.) After four years of dating now, I have decided to open up and try to appreciate BBQ sauce. He’s made some BBQ chicken for me with store bought BBQ sauce, but I found a recipe through Foodgawker for homemade sauce that requires no cooking. Yes, you read that right. NO-cook BBQ sauce.
FOR THE SIDES:
For our sides, I just pan fried up a frozen broccoli and cauliflower mix. I added a little salt and pepper and a tablespoon of butter. They were still firm and weren’t quite as boring as regular broccoli and cauliflower. And I love macaroni and cheese. It was a clear choice for the second side. The macaroni and cheese is obviously very cheap and from a box. Next time, I want to do homemade. But this box was lying around and needed using up… you get what you pay for.
THE VERDICT: I enjoyed the BBQ sauce. It wasn’t too overpowering. It was sweet. Mr. H’s only complaint was that it had too much mustard in it. (He’s not a mustard fan.) I think next time I’ll use a Ketchup without High Fructose Corn Syrup in it. Shame on me for being a wee bit stingy at the store
