Finger Lickin’ Chicken Drumettes/Labour Day Cookout #SundaySupper

Here we are with the last long weekend of summer. How did that happen? Well it has been a quiet one around here, just lots of work chatting with you everyday. I loved my summer. Last year I ran the whole time so this was nice for a change. Amber has enjoyed herself too saying that it was so nice to be just laid back. Ken has taken a few days off here and  there but just kind of staying close to home.

Barbequing is almost a daily event like I am sure it is in so many homes. It is quick and easy and serves up some great flavor!! Ken came up with this BBQ sauce and it is dynamite!! Finger lickin’ good!! So much better than store bought. Whip some together for this long weekend. It really doesn’t take that long and can be proud of a great sauce to serve your family or friends.

This is my second week at #SundaySupper and I am very happy to be here. A great experience so far with a fabulous group of people. Come and check out all the contributions, we hope we can inspire you try lots of them. Happy Labor Day Weekend to you all!!
