In my blog a common subject is the wonderful meals we have prepared.  Great moments in the preparation and the consumption of a meal. (and you wonder why we are SLIGHTLY overweight)

Tonight did not work out that well.  We had left over rice and I (this entire situation I take credit/blame for) said lets do a stir fry.  We used to do stir frys all the time but recently got out of the habit.  We have a great Wok and we even ordered a gas stove when we were building the house that had a Wok mount on the gratings.

A typical preparation where we chopped veggies (celery, onions and red pepper) with fresh pea pods.  I chopped a couple of boneless chicken thighs and did the typical stir fry. 

Then I made the mistake.  Rather than make the simple sauce as I have done hundreds of times, I looked in the pantry and found a jar of Satai Peanut Sauce made by the brand Asian Family.    According to the label perfect for Thai stir frys.

Ruined the entire meal.  It had a chocolate under taste (coco is not one of the ingredients on the label)  Not a great meal, not even a good meal.

But if Pat and I die tonight by food poisoning, look for the jar in our recycling and sue them.  

Fortunatley tomorrow night I am preparing a favourite smoked salmon pasta meal for Pat with smoked salmon roll up appetizers, so I suspect (if we live through the night) she will forgive me for tonights meal.

And, of course, as I write this Blog, Pat is loading the dishwasher.  It is a good thing that she does not read my blogs.
