So we kind of failed. Its day six and we were having guests over so we went and got all kinds of things and are down $250. Now, if we dont eat out, and we dont go back next week we will be ok. I have definitely decided, and learned it is possible not to go to the market more than once a week. Although we already have three things on the shopping list.
We have lots of leftover barbecue chicken because our guests were vegetarians, which I forgot.
Barbecue sauce for one chicken. If you are going to grill, it is worth it to ask your butcher to remove the backbone for you. Most of the time, they are happy to do this for no extra charge and it cuts way down on cooking time...
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp vinegar
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp powdered ginger
1 finely chopped shallot
The longer it marinates, the better it will be, baste it as you go.
