Just some recipes from tonight. In case anyone was wondering!

BBQ Sauce (covers four servings of ribs)

1 cup Ketchup
1/4 water
1/4 Apple cider vinegar
1/2 brown sugar
1/4 honey
1 1/2 tablespoons Yellow Mustard
1/2 tablespoon onion salt
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Combine all ingredients and cook on low heat. Stir occasionally and simmer for 20 minutes.

Cheesy Garlic Mashed Potatoes (for two)

4 peeled and diced red skinned potatoes
Garlic salt to taste
1/2 cup cheese (any kind)
1/4 Milk
3 tablespoons butter

It's really easy. Dice and boil the potatoes until they are soft of course. But instead of just adding regular salt to the boiling water, add garlic salt! This makes the potatoes absorb the flavors of the garlic AND the salt. When potatoes are soft, strain them and then add more garlic salt (and regular salt if you have achieved your desired amount of garlic). Mash in butter and milk until all is combined and then add in the cheese. Be careful not to add the cheese in too early or else it is hard to mash because it's so sticky! I just use whatever I have on hand. In my last batch I threw in mexican three cheese blend and then added a bit of mozzarella.
