This homemade sauce is so easy (and delicious) that we’re betting you’ll never go back to the bottled stuff again! You only need a few simple ingredients to make this recipe – and while we’ve shown it here on chicken, it is perfect for anything you want to put it on! We love it on ribs, fish (especially shrimp), and even tofu! And it makes a generous amount too, so make sure you freeze any leftovers! Homemade Barbecue Sauce: 1/2 cup ketchup 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar 1/4 cup Dijon mustard 4 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Pumpkin Painting Ideas
Oh man carving pumpkins with little kids is hard work. Carving pumpkins period is difficult. I think I actually broke a knife once doing it. And one year when we actually purchased a pumpkin carving knife, things didn’t exactly go smoothly. Granted it was slightly easier but then I put the knife in a special spot where I thought I would be able to find it the following year and promptly forgot that special place. Long story short this year we are ditching carving the pumpkin painting it instead!
I put together this list of fantastic ideas that kids can easily do solo or with a little assistance. They are all super creative ideas that give you a finished product that is porch worthy! Plus the joy on your little artist’s face will be priceless!
I can’t wait to try a few of these ideas with my kids and I hope you will too!

Caulfield Cup day has arrived, and despite no international representation, a field of lightweight depth and quality has been assembled. It’s the biggest 2400m handicap in the world, and it takes a horse with a mixture of class and toughness to salute. There are five key lead-up races, that 16 of the 18 horse field contested as their pre-Cup run. Three of these were Group 1 races – the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington and Metropolitan Handicap at Randwick two weeks ago, and the weight-for-age Might and Power Stakes at Caulfield last week. The other two were hardy staying tests, the Bart Cummings over 2500m at Flemington a fortnight ago, and the Herbert Power Stakes at Caulfield over 2400m last week. The boom horse is of course Incentivise, backed into red...
Christian Lealiifano is the first big name to formally commit to Moana Pasifika, the former Wallabies World Cup playmaker signing on for the side’s 2022 Super Rugby Pacific debut. Lealiifano on Thursday officially put pen to paper for next season with an option to extend. “As someone who was raised a proud Samoan, there is massive appeal in playing for a team that celebrates my heritage and my culture,” he said. “I have been blessed with so many amazing opportunities over the course of my rugby career that I feel I can give back to a special community that has always supported me regardless of what colour jersey I was wearing.” Moana Pasifika coach Aaron Mauger said Lealiifano’s experience and strong Samoan identity made him an obvious target choice...
Half of the UK’s working mothers do not get the flexibility they ask for, while those that do work flexibly face discrimination, according to a survey. The survey of almost 13,000 mothers carried out by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the campaign group Mother Pukka found that one in two had had a request for flexible working turned down or only partly accepted by their current employer. Frances O’Grady, the TUC secretary general, said the survey exposed the failure of the system, with the legal “right to request” flexible working having been in place for two decades. “The current system is broken. Employers still have free rein to turn down requests for flexible working. And women are too scared to ask for flexible working at job interviews, for fear...
If you peer up at the sky on a clear night in October, you may glimpse the Orionid meteor shower. This downpour of falling stars happens every autumn. For about a month, Orionid meteors cascade into the atmosphere, appearing as bright streaks in the sky. The light show is most intense around October 21. The Orionid meteor shower is just one of dozens of meteor showers that happen each year. A meteor shower occurs when Earth passes through a field of debris on its orbit around the sun. This debris may be shed by a comet, asteroid or other object. The Orionids, for instance, happen when Earth moves through a dusty trail left by the comet Halley. See all the entries from our Let’s Learn About seriesWhen Earth plows through such a stream of debris, space rocks tumble...
THIS WEEK IN LATIN AMERICA BOLIVIA: Bolivian prosecutors charged with crimes including genocide for the events following the 2019 coup which left her as interim president of the country on Friday. The charges relate to actions taken by Áñez, when she issued a decree giving the military responsibility for public security. In the next week, security forces shot 20 people to death and injured dozens of others in two clashes in Cochabamba and El Alto. Early Saturday morning, Áñez apparently by cutting her wrists, according to her lawyers and government officials. The former president sustained injuries from the attempt but is not in danger. Jail officials are to determine why Áñez, who suffers...
Few people rival the sartorial prowess of Rihanna. Whenever the multi-hyphenate leaves the house, it's a full-scale event—complete with hoards of paparazzi and outfits worthy of a show. The singer isn't one of the most referenced street style icons for nothing. Even a trip to the supermarket calls for Celine and Amina Muaddi stilettos. This also means there's plenty of outfit inspiration to be had whenever she's out and about. Recently, the Fenty Beauty mastermind has been consistently photographed hitting the streets of New York and L.A. wearing a variety of new fashions. Naturally, my group chats and DMs have ignited with questions and discussions about it all. If Rihanna is wearing something, chances are you'll want to mentally bookmark it before it inevitably explodes...
Liverpool are good enough to win the title *if* Salah can carry them most of the way… To say it was like a training game would be kind on Watford and unfair on the Liverpool first-team opposition at Kirby, who undoubtedly provide a far more intense day-to-day battle than what the Reds experienced at Vicarage Road. Watford were embarrassingly poor; you would be hard pushed to find a more abject performance from a Premier League side. Watford exhibited a staggering lack of skill, organisation and desire. They can’t do all that much about their dearth of ability compared to Liverpool, but then through superior application and grind. All of it was absent until the last ten minutes, when shining light Ismaila Sarr offered a glimmer of hope with...
Lira’s soulful single Feel Good has kept South African’s on their feet for 15 years. The single was released on 6 November 2006 and it’s still one of those essential “feel good” tracks. To celebrate its anniversary, the multi-platinum selling artist teamed up with Prince Kaybee for the amapiano remix of the song.

Kenya Airways today operates a widebody fleet of Boeing 787 aircraft. But prior to this, it was an operator of the 767 and 777, with both 777-200ER and 777-300ER aircraft. Unfortunately, these left the fleet long before their time, as this article explores. Kenya Airways operated three 777-300ER for just over a year. Photo: Alf van Beem via WikimediaKenya Airways’ 777-200s Before taking on the 777-300ER, Kenya Airways operated four 777-200ER aircraft. These entered the fleet between May 2005 and February 2007 (according to fleet data from ch-aviation.com). They were all acquired as new aircraft from Boeing....
