Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

There are so many combinations of ingredients to make BBQ sauce. Most of them need to be cooked in order for the flavors and richness to come out. I dont cook mine before using it. Well, it's cooked and used at the same time.
1/4 Cup Ketchup
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 TBS Crushed garlic or garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dry mustard
Mix it all together, add 1/4 cup of water, toss it into the crock pot with some cheap pork cuts. Actually you can make this with any meat or gluten vegan substitute. I usually make it with pork for the husbeast and the kids. So my recipe feeds 2. It's easy to double and make more.
Basically you just continue cooking until the meat falls off the bone or falls apart. I set the crock on high for 30 minutes until it's warmed up and then I turn it to low and let it go for a good 5-6 hours or more.
If you want to make just the BBQ sauce then you'll want to double it. Don't add any water. Simmer at low to medium heat for about an hour. Make sure to stir occasionally.
Happy Grammy Feet
Check out the yarn stash behind her and the crochet project on the floor. She makes the best afghans. Which shes trying to sell for the price of the yarn just so she can buy more yarn. So if you want one, holler. Sorry, this wasn't meant to be a pimp out for the Gram, sometimes my fingers run away with themselves. Still, since the stroke, crocheting is about all she has left that she can do. She never got back the ability to read and a few other things. So most days she spends crocheting. And now she has a crazy stack of afghans! ok, back to the socks, here's a close up:
Thank you for all the great comments on Friday. I have to completely re write the pattern. Even though I backed it up, I can't find it. Really that was a good capper to the week, I just couldn't write it over the weekend. It takes some mental thought to make a pattern coherent to others. I can knit it again in exactly the same way. It's written in my head, as is the shawl I posted a week or so ago.
As soon as my brain is unfolded and working, I'll get the patterns written out.
