Happy Friday.  It is nearly the weekend. It has soon come around again. Any fun plans or dinner party? Autumn starts today too, nooo I wanted t to be Summer for a little longer!!

Are you planning some last minute BBQ’S/events or just eating some nicely cooked sausages/burgers or tasty vegetables over the weekend and need a nice BBQ sauce to go on top of them?

Fancy making your own BBQ sauce?

How about trying this Home-made Chipotle BBQ Sauce?

This delicious home-made barbeque sauce is made with a blast of Chipotle chilli for added smoky flavour. Marinate chicken wings and brush over veggie kebabs before throwing them on the barbeque, or use as a dip for sweet potato wedges.
