Last night’s dinner

This looked just like the real deal but needed a bit more chili to make it have the same sort of punch they we both had in our memories. The recipe is really well written and if you have everything ready to go it is quite simple.

Tonight’s dinner

We’re going to be out and about quite a bit and even going to go for a fun tour of Beau’s Brewery in Vankleek Hill.

We’ve been a fan of the beer since it was first available but haven’t made it for a tour. Should be lots of fun.

Check out this local and organic phenom

We need something quick to have so that we don’t succumb to the take away devil. So here is what we’ll try paired with the last of our produce from this week’s bin; spinach, tomatoes and some cut-up garlic ramps. I put the chicken in the marinade last night so this should be really easy.

Chicken Satay Recipe


2 boneless chicken breasts, a total of about 1 lb.
2 teaspoons sesame oil
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
salt and pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
spray vegetable oil
16 Wood Skewers soaked in water for 30 minutes.


Cut thin 1/4-inch slices that run the length of the chicken breast, each slice will be 1 inch by 4 inches by 1/4 inch to get about 16 slices.
Mix Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce, Cilantro, Garlic, Cumin, Sugar and Red Pepper Flakes in medium bowl.
Put sliced chicken and marinade into a zip loc bag, get as much air out as possible and put into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or overnight if you wish.
Soak you wood Skewers for 30 minutes prior to cooking so that they won’t burn up on the grill before your chicken is done.

Thread each slice onto a wood skewer, working the skewer in and out of the meat so that it stays in place during grilling.
Heat grill to high heat, place the skewers on the grill so that the ends without the chicken are hanging off the grill edge so that you can grab them for turning.
Cook chicken for about 5-7 minutes per side.

For sauce, blend peanut butter and vinegar, add water if necessary for desired flavor and consistency.
