I have procratinated figuring out what to give my hubby for Father’s Day this year because things have been a bit crazy around here. We already picked out a new suit for his gift this year because he could no longer wear his other one due to a large hole he had worn on the seat of his pants.
But I wanted the kids to be able to give him a gift so he had something to open on his special day. I made him some homemade BBQ sauce using one of our favorite recipes and a homemade meat rub to go along with it. I put some of the sauce into an old store bought BBQ sauce bottle and packaged up the BBQ rub. I bought some meat and have all the ingredients for a delicious barbeque ready to go for our Sunday dinner. Here are the recipes if you are interested.
Homemade Pork Meat Rub:
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup salt
1/4 cup freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
In a medium bowl, mix together white and brown sugars, salt, pepper, and paprika. Rub onto pork 10 minutes prior to grilling. Store any leftover rub in a sealed container.
The Homemade BBQ sauce recipe is from our neighbors who I grew up next to. It is so yummy. Or use your own homemade BBQ sauce or find one on the internet. There are a lot out there.
Homemade BBQ Sauce:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup margarine
1 lb pkg. brown sugar
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt
32 oz bottle ketchup
Then I found this fun idea at kmckaydesigns.com. Since my hubby has a few favorite snacks, I decided the kids could help me make this cute snack case for him to take and keep at work.
It is made using a six pack of IBC Cream Soda and some scrap book paper. I found the directions and templates for everything you need to make them here.
I am really tempted to make these for my guy too. I seriously can not get over how talented Bakerella is. These look so yummy.
