You know how sometimes you get spoiled by the little things? Well, one of my weaknesses is bbq sauce. Before I moved to the east coast, I liked a certain sauce sold in my hometown. It was great because it was often on sale at $10 for 10, though it really just meant $1/1 as you weren’t forced to buy in quanities of 10.
And then I moved, but kept the tradition alive by having my parents mail me care packages with some of the “good stuff” inside.
Eventually, I bought a lot of spicy things for one of Marco’s upcoming visits (a jar of jalapenos, hot sauce, jabanero doritos) and also a bottle of “Texas style” bbq sauce which is a more spicy style. And even though it was for Marco, I liked it. And kept buying it for a few years while I lived in New York. Probably a bit too much, since I went through it so quickly.
And then three or four months ago, it disappeared without a trace. Only the original style was left. What a bummer. I found a decent replacement, but it wasn’t the same as it was too sweet for my tastes.
Yeah, I’m not silly. I took a bottle (note the gap), prior to taking the picture just in case a horde of folks snapped up all 100 or so bottles while I was taking the picture. There was at least twice what you see here.
I will get another bottle tomorrow, as I have to go back. That’s the downside to walking to the grocery store – you can’t carry everything in one trip usually. I have a bbq party at work on Tuesday, so I offered to bring some non perishables like napkins, plasticware, and plastic cups.
But the bbq sauce was a nice unexpected treat.
