Were it not for my wife, I’d probably spend the rest of my life eating hamburgers, steak, and giant baked potatoes (which, at the time, was fine by me). I might occasionally get adventurous and sit down with a bean burrito, but certainly nothing that would count as ethnic or non-traditional.
Thai Peanut Sauce Ingredients:1 tablespoon red chili sauce3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (I like skippy natural)2 tablespoons sugar1 teaspoon white vinegar1 teaspoon fish sauce (if you hate anchovies, don’t read the ingredients on the bottle)Directions:Heat the coconut milk in a sauce pan on medium heat.Add red chili sauce and let it simmer. When you see the oils from the chili sauce rise to the top, add the rest of the ingredients.Stir and let it simmer. The longer you let it simmer, the thicker it will get so take it off the heat when it reaches a consistency to your liking.
