Do you ever get a certain food stuck in your head? Like if someone’s talking about it or you see a picture of it?

I know I do.

Case in point, we were at some friend’s for dinner a couple weekends ago, and peanut sauce came up. Most of us talked about how we looooooove it (excluding the hubs), then from that point on all I wanted was peanut sauce.

Maybe I can blame this craving on being pregnant… hmmm probably not.

A few days later I threw together a peanut sauce to go with our tofu, brown rice and veggie stir fry. It was heaven in a bowl.

The hubs even ate leftovers the next day WITH my amazing peanut sauce. Since I had throw it together so quickly I just had to recreate it again, ya know for you guys. 😉

This time, in thai peanut chicken wrap form. With leftover slow cooker chicken (this recipe, just no italian seasonings), and sautéd red bell pepper and sugar snap peas lunch was a… snap!  And there’s lots of leftover sauce to drizzle on whatever you like. Or eat by the spoonful. What… I’m pregnant so it makes it totally acceptable, right?

Enjoy!

Thai Peanut Sauce
makes a little less than 1 cup

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup creamy natural peanut butter (mine had a little sea salt in it)
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. In a microwave safe bowl combine the water, peanut butter and soy sauce. Heat on high for 1 minute, then whisk to combine.
  2. Whisk in the remaining ingredients. The sauce will thicken up naturally after a couple minutes, so make sure to let it sit for a few before serving.

Are you a peanut sauce fan?  I’m always surprised when people aren’t… it’s really one of my very favorite things!

If you haven’t yet, please chime in on your favorite spot to hike where you live in yesterday’s post. We appreciate it!

Aaaaaand since it’s Thursday, it’s cycle night!  Yay! Last night’s Body Pump class left me sleeping like a baby.  Glorious.

I’m off to walk the dog on freshly snow powdered side walks!

Happy Thursday!

Heather

PS: Happy March 1st!

  2. Powdered sidewalks? Brrrrr! It’s a glorious day here – sun shining and warm. I’m about to hit up a patio. It’s such a tease though – I’m sure it’ll be cold again soon!

  3. I am sitting in the doctors office reading your blog. I have never had peanut sauce, but it sounds amazing. I think this will be my dinner tonight. I also wanted to say thank you. Your package you sent me came in the mail today. Just what I needed to cheer me up. I’m going to make donutd with the flour. Thank you again. Gotta go, doctors calling me in.
