I’ve had enough of winter! Is anyone else with me on this one? I collect snowmen that I leave out long after Christmas. I find that I really enjoy looking at their cute little smiles. Well, I’m over it. Those little guys are all going away for another year.
I know that this winter hasn’t been too bad but I’m still tired of it. I really shouldn’t complain because we have had much less snow and milder temperatures than other years. I am really looking forward to the even warmer temperatures and new life that spring brings! Okay, I have ranted enough. I’m done now…
I really enjoy making different sauces to go into my dishes! At Christmas time, I was looking for a different flavour for my meatballs. I wanted sweet and tangy. This sauce is both of those! It also goes great with pulled pork or on any meat that you’re serving.
