Hubby Makes a Discovery

Pauline Rhoads

I try to keep my husband as far away from grocery stores as possible. For every item on my list he brings back the wrong thing plus ten more “helpful” selections of his own. Perhaps one day I will find a use for the twenty-four bags of dried Cope’s Corn in my pantry. This time, though, he did right when he brought home Black Hills Born in the Badlands Organic Gourmet BBQ Sauce. It’s available at Whole Foods near the meat counter. Maybe it’s the tamarind they add—which I ate by the block as a kid—that gives it perfect balances of sweet, tangy, and spicy. It was so good I sent him out to buy every bottle he could get his hands on.
