I must be possessed…

I am a kitchen disaster.  I can follow a recipe to the teaspoon only to have it end in nastiness.

I’ll watch cooking shows and think “Eh, that could be good.  I’d really screw that one up.”   But after watching last week’s Aarti Party, I was motivated to give her Pulled Pork with Mango BBQ Sauce recipe a try.

I picked up the ingredients this morning and prepped everything when I got home.   There was just one minor snag:  my grocery store didn’t have mango puree, the key component to the mango BBQ sauce.  So get this… I made my own!  I thawed some frozen mango and blended it with some mango nectar.  And it worked!

As if that weren’t awesome enough, the recipe turned out a-mazing ifIdosaysomyself!   The companion slaw isn’t so bad either! Wow, there are lots of exclamation points in this entry…

Dan’s not really a BBQ pork kind of guy, but I can’t wait to see what he thinks.  He’s suffered through so much of my cooking that I want to share this milestone.

Cuz you never know what I’ll do with my next conquest:  Aarti’s Baked Samosas with Chutney.
