The best bbq sauce ever!

Okay, gonna share a recipe that I got from the Kraft Food and Family magazine. I love that magazine. I cook almost all our meals from ideas I get from it, even if I don't exactly follow the recipe. It used to be free, but now, it's about $6 a year and darn well worth it if you're feeding a family on a tight budget.

I've used this sauce on chicken, chops and with the addition, on burgers.

6T zesty italian salad dressing
2T preserves...I've used apricot and orange marmalade, but am sure any sweet perserve would do.

And, the addition that I added for the burgers was 2T of Kraft BBQ sauce.

Just sauce the meat up and let it sit in the fridge for about 10 minutes, then sauce it again every time you turn it on the grill. It starts a little thin, but over time becomes a thick coating on the meat. Love it, love it, love it.

We're off to Six Flags Fiesta Texas today. We have a plan that will let us maximize our fun and we've given Sydney our little talk about the adults being in charge of what she gets to ride and what she doesn't. Turns out Rob doesn't like to ride the fast and furious stuff either, so we've let her know that when she's a little older, she'll get to go without us and she can ride those things when I'm not there watching, but she may not get to ride them when I'm on the ground holding my breath and fingering my insurance card.

Sunblock, check. Hat, check. Book, check. Sandwiches for a picnic before we enter, check. Swimsuit, check. Cash, check, check, check.

Y'all take care and have a great Wednesday. Lane

Have fun at the Fiesta. Great recipie. I could work with that one easily. Now if I could just get my husband to bbq we'd be all set. I'm sure before the summer's out I'll get at least one real bbq steak out of him.

Thanks for the recipe! I will give it a try. I hate those rides too and so does my son but my DH and daughter love them and I am trying not to instill fear in them like my parents did to me but I still won't ride them! Yuck! Have a great time! Lisa

I am excited for you all. What a fun day you will have. Oh, and coming from a chicken (me) go out on a limb and ride something a little more fierce than you normally would. It is easy for me to say, I am at home...your the one's facing the monster rides!!
