Happy Mother's Day

Spent the day with my mother and no one came up missing a limb or bleeding. It was actually a good day. Had chorizo quesadillas for breakfast. Watched tennis, fussed about Sloane Stephens, watched more tennis and Say Yes To the Dress: Atlanta--she loves Monty. Decided to make knock off Shiner Bock burgers which warranted a store run and while the recipe is relatively simple ingredient wise it was a little more time consuming than I thought. Anyhoo she loved it and we ate that, fries and watched La Voz Kids on Telemundo (yes it's in Spanish but she loves it). She just left me to go watch Revenge though, feeling abandoned ROFLMAO. Not really. Happy Mother's Day everyone.  Oh and if anyone wants the recipe here it goes.  Either enjoy Shiner Bock or find someone who is willing to drink what you don't use--you only need half a bottle of beer so keep that in mind.

* canned chipotle peppers in adobo
* 1/4 cup mushroom soy sauce
* 1 cup tomato paste
* 1/4 cup canned chicken broth
* 1/3 cup ketchup
* 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
* 1/2 Shiner Bock beer, bottled
* 3/4 cup malt syrup
* 1 1/2 cup water
* 1/3 cup minced garlic
* 1 tablespoon chili powder
* 1/8 cup onion powder
* 1 tablespoon black pepper
* 3 1/2 cup light brown sugar
* 1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt

1. Puree the chipotle in adobo mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth and place 1/4 cup of the can in a medium sauce pot.

2. Add all liquid ingredients to sauce pot and whisk to mix thoroughly.

3. Bring sauce to a very slow simmer.

4. Stir occasionally. Add minced garlic and all of the dry ingredients, whisk to mix thoroughly.

5. Simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring every four to five minutes to ensure the sauce doesn't stick or burn to the bottom of the pot. 


  1. It's good you ladies had quality time together!

    1. Yeah it was funny and fun. She messed up my original dinner plan but we regrouped.

  2. Good to hear you had a... um... good time. Sorry, I'm running out of adjectives. ;)

    1. My mother can be difficult so I have to celebrate the moments where I don't want to push her down stairs or play "that's not my momma" with my brother.
