Love reading the feedback on last week’s discussion for the Peach Croissants! This week we devote our attention to these yummy Thai Marinated Grilled Chicken Skewers from page 86 along with the Peanut Coconut Sauce. If you’re feeling up to it, I highly recommend serving this with the Coconut Rice and Asian Cucumber Salad which are from the same chapter. What I love about this meal is how fast and easy it is to pull together. It’s one of those impressive type of meals which always wows people but really doesn’t take a lot of effort. A friend of mine with a peanut allergy made the Peanut Coconut Sauce with suflower seed butter because of allergies and said the sauce was a huge hit with her family.
Although I haven’t experimented with different types of nuts, I would love to hear about other types of substitutes. Also, I love to jar any leftover sauce and stir-fry spaghetti noodles with other vegetables for a very delicious meal. The coconut rice can be made with brown rice and the cucumber salad is very refreshing on a hot summer day. I can’t wait to hear what you all think about these recipes.
Once again we will be giving away a $15 gift card to either Amazon or Starbucks for this weeks discussion prize. Last week’s winner was Nikki W!
Next week we will discuss the Rustic Spiced Plum Tart on page 184. As a great time saving tip, it is totally acceptable to buy a store-bought pie crust. Top a warm slice of tart off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and, oh my word, heavenly.
Have fun baking!
