Get Saucy!

We love sauces and make a lot of our own at home! Here are some of our faves...

   Mayonnaise

Mayo is so easy to make! Just do it. The stuff at the store is so full of crap and mayo can actually be a really healthy part of what you eat when made properly... Can I get a hallelujah on that?!?!?
In a small glass bowl, add 1 egg yolk, 1 T Dijon Mustard, 1 T white wine vinegar, a dash of salt, and 2 T of avocado oil or extra light olive oil. I use a fork and just start whisking/whipping it quickly. It will all combine and get a bit thick. Measure out 1 cup of your oil. Add a little and whisk, add a little and whisk, etc etc. It should get thick pretty quickly. You should have to add oil at least 8-10 times to add all the oil. To finish it and round the flavor, squeeze in juice from half a lemon and stir. For this week, we use this in the Awesome Sauce (below) and for Tarragon Chicken Salad (on Thursday).

Kickass Ketchup -

This is a great ketchup from Well Fed that is super easy and has a great flavor. I put it in a squeeze bottle

Awesome Sauce-

To make this, I combine about 1/3 cup of the Mayo with about 1 T of the ketchup. I add 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar, 1 clove pressed garlic, 1/2 tsp smoked paprika, 1/4 tsp cumin, a shake of cayenne pepper and a smidge of himalayan salt to taste.  TRUTH: I double this and keep it in a squeezy bottle because Mark LOVES it.
