BBQing while remembering those who served the RED, WHITE & BLUE!


Happy Memorial Day Weekend, Socialites! I know we are all excited for the three day weekend and start of summer, but let's not forget those who served so we are able to enjoy it! 
Since many of you (my family included) will be firing up those grills and BBQing with family and friends. I thought I would share our family recipe for BBQ sauce! This recipe has been handed down in my family for four generations, so trust me it's a good one!
Let me know if you decide to try it this summer!
Carroll Family Barbecue Sauce
2 Tablespoons of margarine
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
½ cup celery, minced
½ cup hot water or meat stock

1 teaspoon salt

¼ red and black peppers

Sauté onions in margarine for 5 minutes, add remaining ingredients, except salt and pepper. Cook slowly in a covered pan for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper during the last 5 minutes.

Safety first with bbqing on the Patio, Daddy-O! ~xx
Here's wishing your and yours a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend!
