Teaching a tested subject has turned me into a crazy teacher. With the DC CAS drawing closer, hours at school are becoming longer. Remediation and pull out groups are taking the place of planning periods, meaning math lessons are being created after-school on the couch. With the work load increasing, labor intensive meals have to be saved for the weekend. Grilled chicken and roasted vegetables will likely be making a regular appearance on my weeknight menu. Making my own barbecue sauce over the weekend acts not only as my flavor enhancer, but as my compromise to simple meals during the week. This sauce adds delicious flavor to roasted or grilled chicken, can take the place of tomato sauce on a pizza, and livens up a sandwich. I’ve adapted this sauce from the Neely family recipe, and what I am most looking forward to is making their barbecue spaghetti featuring this sauce.
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
