Wind ~ Rain ~ News Photo ~ White Barbecue Sauce ~ Bizarre Vegetables & Fruit ~ Ike Saben ~ Wendy Harp ~ Leah Marmorato ~ Jan Kundert ~ Omaha Steaks Order ~ Crabmeat Day

Good 46ยบ raining morning. 

Yesterday we had quite a bit of wind and some dark clouds.

The wind was wild and blowing from the south and then from the west. My Acuweather said it was 21 mph and on the nightly news they said we had gusts of 25-35 mph! It scared Dude and Bruiser!

Rain was slated for the evening and I heard it in the middle of the night.

Famous again.... my photo of the rainbow was on the 6 o'clock news. Thank you Adam Colpack!

Normally when I think about BBQ sauce I think of a sweet and spicy tomato based, red, sauce but there are other kinds of BBQ sauce like this white BBQ sauce. This sauce has a base of mayonnaise along with vinegar for tang, mustard and horseradish for bite, garlic and Worcestershire sauce for flavor, paprika for a bit of smokiness, salt, cayenne and plenty of fresh cracked black pepper! It only takes a few minutes to whip up your own white BBQ sauce and it tastes great slathered on chicken, as a dipping sauce for chicken bites or fingers or mixed in with pulled/shredded meat for sandwiches or salads....
A creamy and tangy white BBQ sauce with bite!

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar (or cider vinegar)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon creole mustard
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced/grated
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (omit for vegetarian)
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
  • salt and cayenne to taste
Mix everything and enjoy!

Here are some more of those bizarre vegetables and fruits....
