The Best Homemade BBQ Sauce Ever!

The Best Homemade BBQ Sauce

Happy Thursday..most of your work weeks are almost over and mine will be starting tonight..boo. As much as I enjoy the couple nights a week to get out of the house alone…and as much as I HATE leaving my little man for any reason, sometimes I wish the couple nights I left weren’t to go to work but to actually enjoy some alone time…shopping, dinner, even a drink haha (definitely the drink!) C’est la Vie! I wouldn’t trade this handsome little munchkin for ANYTHING!

This was the first time I’ve made homemade BBQ Sauce..and all I can say is what the hell was I waiting for?! This stuff is like liquid crack. I haven’t been able to stop eating it by the spoonful’s for two days…I’m not even joking! I’m obsessed with it! I made it initially for these crazy burgers..(more on that later!) and since then have used it on sandwiches, mini chicken bites, to spoon into my mouth…and the ideas popping into my head to just gobble it right up are endless! I will NEVER buy store-bought again, this was to easy and the end result is just far to amazing! You are welcome! ๐Ÿ˜‰
