In real life, Angie had a Dumbo-themed baby shower. So, my mind went: Dumbo, elephant, peanuts, peanut butter. Yep. I knew I wanted to make a savory dish with peanut butter sauce!

Chicken Satay Skewers 
with Peanut Butter Sauce

Ingredients
Marinade
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon)
  • 2 T garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken (I used boneless and skinless strips of chicken breast)
  • Also needed: skewers and grill or grill pan

Satay Sauce
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 2 T ground almonds
  • 1/2 C coconut milk
  • splash of soy sauce to taste
  • 1 T raw honey + more as needed


Procedure
Marinade
Whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a lidded container. Pour marinade over the top. Let the meat marinate overnight in the fridge.

While the grill heats up, soak the skewers in cold water for, at least, 10 minutes. Thread strips of meat onto each skewer and place on the grill. Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked golden. 

Satay Sauce
Combine all the satay sauce ingredients with just enough soy sauce to season. Add a little honey to sweeten, if necessary. Simmer gently for five minutes.


Serve with the hot satay sauce for dipping.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
