Friday night I made oven barbecued chicken, fried potatoes, broccoli, tossed salad and rolls. We had ice cream for dessert.
For the barbecued chicken, I make my own barbecue sauce. I make up a recipe and keep it in the fridge. Many times you can get barbecue sauce on sale, but I prefer to make my own. For the potatoes, we had some leftover baked potatoes in the fridge so I used them up by frying them.
Last night my husband's boss put on a "Christmas" party at his home for the employees. I appreciate that he has this party in January when things have settled down as it makes it more enjoyable and I had the evening off from cooking.
Today my sons and husband went to a basketball game after church and my daughter in law treated me to lunch out. This has been a great no cooking weekend for me. Gotta love it.
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
9 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
I mix the ingredients together and then warm the mixture in a sauce pan so that the sugar melts and absorbs into the sauce. Cool it and store in the fridge.
I cut up the potatoes and put a little butter into a frying pan to brown them. While they are browning, I sprinkle them with chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder to add a nice flavor. Right before serving I sprinkle them with seasoning salt.
