Flame Tree Barbecue Sauce and Wild Animal Kingdom

I love to see animals Walt Disney style. You get a sense of action, adventure with a rainbow sprinkle of danger, with the added benefit of knowing that you are completely safe. I felt safer seeing lions and cheetas at Disneyworld than I did in the henhouse on my trip to the egg farm. I felt safer seeing hippos and rhinos at Disneyworld than I did on their Mount Everest roller coaster. (Backwards in the dark...bah!) Why do I keep going on roller coasters? I hate them. But I love to hate them. I asked my niece Bella if she liked riding on Mount Everest. She said, with all of her five year old wisdom, "I hate it and I love it." I couldn't have said it better myself. But let's get back to the animals, OK? This is a cool high school giraffe hanging out with a junior high buddy.Here's the jungle equivalent of a show off. We went on the safari expedition twice and he tried to race us both times.

Excuse me, ma'am. I believe you dropped something.

I was bemoaning the fact that we didn't get to see a rhino close up, when this guy showed up and wouldn't move and we had to watch him for twenty minutes. This baby gorilla is adorable. I wanted to put him in my pocket and take him home and feed him jars of banana baby food. I'm not sure how his mother would feel about it. Look at George and Martha in the bathtub.When you are done poking fun at animals, you head over here and eat a few. Doesn't that sound cruel? There's something disturbing about eating meat at a zoo, but don't let that stop you. Truth be told, I got a fruit plate and a half order of onion rings. I'm not man enough to eat meat in the zoo. The Quiet man wasn't as easily daunted and ordered the ribs and I stole a small bite. Deelish. I didn't take a picture, not because I forgot but because we were busy fending off a gang of scavenging birds while we gobbled down our lunch. I tell you, it's a jungle out there.

This picture is stolen shamelessly from a travel review site. I doubt they'll mind. Just wanted you to know that I wasn't posting my cleavage with the ribs.

I had to get the recipe for the barbecue sauce so that I could make it for the Quiet Man for Father's Day. Apparently they field daily requests for their sauce, so here it is. Give it a try on chicken, pork, or even dunk your onion rings in it. See you next time with some treats from Hollywood Studios.

Flame Tree Barbecue Sauce

Estimated Cost: $2.00 for 1 and 1/2 cups

Notes: Might as well double it and freeze some for next time.

1 cup ketchup

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons molasses

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon paprika

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon cloves

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 35 minutes. Store in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Up Next: Hollywood Studios

Haha you made me lol at that picture!

Catherine said...

That's a crack up about watching the animals and then eating the animals. So true, too. The barbecue sauce looks delicious and it's sounds even better with some onion rings. In fact that sounds like the perfect for snack for Saturday night while the men are away at conference.

Michal said...

Yum. I love homemade bbq sauce on any kind of animal or onion rings! Great idea for father's day (or Jared's birthday next week.)

The safari looks like just my speed:)

Mandy said...

I remember going through a safari like that, it was so much fun. I bet your kiddos loved it. The BBQ sauce sounds great. I wouldn't have thought to add tumeric and cumin: yum! yum! yum!

This is the best thing ever!! I live in FLorida where it is hot and humid....I have no air

conditioning in my car so I have to drive with the windows down...I have very curly, thick, and out of control hair...with all these elements it is hard to find something to make my hair stay straight. This

worked...I drove on the highway with my windows down in nice hot humid weather and it is still as perfect as when I straightened it 2 days ago!! Buy this product it is worth the money!!!

I suffer from curly, frizzy, wild hair.. I have tried every product imaginable and this is the best product

out there.. It takes about a minute to heat and run it through each handful of hair once and your hair is perfect.. it will stay smooth and frizz free not to mention straight as a board until u wash your

hair next(even if u wait 3 days).. Please buy this product if u don't believe me.

I am an African American woman with naturally kinky/coarse hair. I decided to stop using

relaxers over a year ago, furthermore straightening my hair became a difficult task. I could never seem to get the results I was looking for out of a flat iron without going to a professional hair salon and

spending $65.00 a visit. I previously used FHI ceramic flat irons which straightened my hair and then left it frizzy again within the next hour. A hairstylist friend of mines suggested the Babyliss Pro

Titanium irons. I purchased them from Amazon for $70 bucks and received them in about 5 days. "A miracle!!" I can't live without them now. My hair goes from frizzy/kinky to silky/straight/shiny in the blink

of an eye. The best part is that it "STAYS" silky and straight until the next time I need to wash and straighten. No gimmic here. I highly recommend them over chi and fhi.
