Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Butter Sauce #VirtualBabyShower


Angie, Big Bear's Wife, is having had a baby. And Terri of Love and Confections is throwing her a virtual baby shower. We were all set to post for a pre-baby event. Turns out that he had other ideas. Her new little Baby Bear arrived earlier this week!


Please take some time to check out all the amazing recipes we made for Angie's virtual baby shower!

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
