I think I've come awfully close to replicating Johnnie's secret recipe for their Theta Sauce. That would be the good news! The bad news is, I will have to replicate this. This time I promise to note exactly how much of each ingredient I add. I added a little of this and a little of that... and then more of this and more of that. The biggest issue I have right now with it (because the taste is great) is the texture. Johnnie's Theta sauce is thicker than mine. So, I guess I'm going to let it simmer a while longer. I can always thicken it another way, but I'm just not sure which direction to go with this.
I've noticed that Evan has been asking me questions lately when I'm in the kitchen. He's starting to pay attention to what I do. I am glad he's interested in cooking however I still want him to come home from time to time so I can cook for him!
Also I want to urge everyone to PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!!! I've had two friends that have had heat-related problems. Drink lots of water!!! Heat exhaustion will sneak up on you fast!
Also please check your tires. It is a terrible time to have to drive on the highways with this heat and I know we've personally had 2 flats because of it and we have friends who have too. I've been moving what plants I can to the shade and I've begun to water my trees.
We boated to dinner up the lake last night. It was still over 100 degrees at 7:30. It was miserable!! Even at 50mph the air was HOT. As I'm typing our temp is 109 and the heat index is 111. It's going to go up too.
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest! I have a project going at all times!
