I’m just about the happiest woman in the world! As you can see, Ash proposed, and placed the most beautiful antique ring on my finger.
I know this doesn’t have much to do with cooking, or recipes, but bear with me and I’ll share something edible with you too. But before I do, I must share some photos from our weekend away.
There was the spa cabin, with a gas log fire and a cute kitchen…
Then the delicious mushroom, potato and herb dish he cooked for dinner on our first night, with a fresh green side salad…
Breakfast proved even further why I should marry the man…
(there wasn’t much leftover)
And finally, this is the recipe I’ll share with you. It’s so yummy you’ll have to exercise considerable self-control to stop eating it with a spoon. Ash’s Mum’s peanut satay sauce. Mm-hmm.
Slather it on grilled vegetable kebabs as we did. Use it as an extravagant salad dressing. Thin it out and call it soup. Top steamed vegetables with it like a Pra Ram Long Song. Thicken with extra peanut butter and serve as a dip. Drizzle over a pizza instead of cheese. You name it, it does it, and does it better than you’ve had it done before.
Peanut satay sauce (serves 4)
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
- 1 tsp chicken flavoured stock
- 165ml coconut milk
- A handful of chopped coriander
- 1/2 long red chilli, chopped
- Mix, with a spoon, in a bowl. Or shake in a jar. Couldn’t be simpler really!
p.s. I’ve had to re-draw the chocolate giveaway because I wasn’t able to get in contact with Fiona. Jodie Fraser, you’re our new winner! I’ll Facebook you to get your details.
p.p.s. One last photo…
