We made barbecue sauce today, and oh, it was amazing!
Today was one of the best days of my life. I was excited about today, and woke up with an excitement about me. I made plans and surprised my husband with a special package so that we can make our very own barbecue sauce at home. From the day I thought about it, I could hardly contain myself. I spilled half the beans…
Cooking is something that we both love to do, and it brings a sense of peace and happiness in our home. We both love barbecue and exploring with spices, and with nearly everything being made from scratch in our home, this was the natural ‘next step’ for us.
Today was a bright day, and everything was just perfect. I was able to ‘sleep in’ a bit, then got up and got dressed, ready with the excitement that I had planned for today. I met with the Lord for daily prayer and meditation, then on to my ‘morning chores’ and so on to prepping our kitchen and spices for the BIG REVEAL…we’re making barbecue sauce today!
With our best bases, spices, and savory tools in hand, we made a ‘GO’ for it, and I must tell you, it became a smoky, sweet marinade full of savory goodness.
Making our own barbecue sauce was more than just a fun and unique project. It was an opportunity to reflect and to give God thanks for the peace of our home, for the ability to explore, and to create something from the time, peace, and space He has given to us. It was a wonderful experience, and one that I’ll NEVER forget. I’m looking forward to making more memories much like this one.
What new memories will you (or you and your family) begin to create?
