Jamaican me crazy in love with this sauce

This bottle has SO much goodness in it, I can’t even begin to describe my love for it.
I need to throw out a huge thanks to my buddy Shawn for getting this for me. I tried it a few weeks ago and have been obsessed about it ever since.
The sauce is like a BBQ sauce but has that Jamaican Jerk seasoning. I found a recipe that I’m going to try once I move into my new apartment (which is tomorrow!!!!) and see if it even tastes close to as good as thing stuff. No worries I’ll keep ya posted on how it turns out!
Tonight I had it on a Salmon burger patty with some lentils, with artichokes and some goat cheese.
 
Between the goat cheese and the sauce I was in heaaavvveeennn!
Here’s the recipe for the sauce, I found it on http://www.jamaicans.com/cooking/sauces/jerk.shtml and think it should be pretty close to this sauce (at least I hope)

This morning started out with a delicious parfait with some homemade granola that Alyson made. She makes the BEST granola, mine is no where near as good as hers.
 
but the recipe is the same as the one posted Home-made Granola.
After work and crossfit, I had a date with the spin bike and some friends.
It was time to get my spin on so I could enjoy some chocolate clusters! A few days ago, Alyson and I made these and they are to die for!
Super easy to make and delicious!
Take some dark chocolate or milk chocolate and heat it up to melt it.
While that is heating, spread out almonds, pretzels, and espresso beans on parchment paper.

Once chocolate is melted pour it over the almonds almonds, and espresso beans.

Let cool and ENJOY!!!
