It Needs Tweeking

Well I made the barbecue sauce and cut the recipe in fourths. Gads, I would have needed 4 cans of tomato juice just to start with! Too much. So, Fourth ed everything, threw it in the pot, turned on the heat, and started tasting it...needed more sugar, more sugar...hummmmm..........
I've had better. Much better. My own for instance. Well, if you do want to try it, get it to where you like it. You may like it just fine the way it started out for me. And if you like onions added, make sure you saute them first, drain then add to the sauce. If you don't, you'll have barbecue "onion" sauce. It is a very quick sauce and may come in handy for that unexpected crowd. Oh well, on to other fun things. Have a good one! Oh yes, NO Hubby...that's NOT what's for dinner!!!

Flooding in Ft. Worth

Well for Heaven's sake, when I asked for rain, I didn't mean a flood! Seems Ft. Worth, Texas, which is only about an hour away from us to the north, got a complete wash out! Flooding every where. That picture I took yesterday out the side office window showed the worse of the storm headed north. Haven't heard much about it except for the news announcer this morning talking about it. I pray no one was killed.

It is definitely turning cooler here. This year, I must say, I've been ready for the cooler weather to hit. When the temps get to 110 in the shade, you're ready.
Well, I'm going to try out a new bar-b-que sauce recipe when I get home. It came from an old eatery, here in town, from back in the 50's. The ingredients are: 4qts. Campbell's Tomato Juice, 1/2 pint Heinz apple cider vinegar, 1 pint Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 pd dark brown sugar, 1 tbsp salt, 1tsp pepper, 2/3 cup onion powder, 1/2 cup garlic powder. Stir together and bring to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes.
I couldn't find Campbell's Tomato Juice so I'll substitute another brand. Anyway, here's hoping it turns out. You may want to wait before you try it so if it's not any good, I'll let you know.
Well guess I'll get back at it. Y'all have a wonderful evening and a better tomorrow.
