Asian Peanut Sauce

Happy Friday!

I've been meaning to post about this peanut sauce for the past few days, but I keep forgetting.  Basically, when I'm home, Tyler and Tony make fun of the food I eat constantly...but Tyler actually said this sauce smelled good, and then he ate it, and he LIKED it!  Of course the first words out of his mouth were "You know what would be good with this? Chicken!"  And yes, for all of the non-vegetarians reading this, I'm sure this sauce would be great with chicken.  That night I had the sauce over pasta with kidney beans, broccoli and asparagus.  I've also had this sauce over a salad with brown rice, avocado and pineapple.  It's incredibly easy and quick to make...here's the recipe:

1 tablespoon peanut butter (I've found the all natural pb without any added sugars whips the best- not to mention it's better for you anyway!)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar (I use whatever's lying around the house, but apple cider vinegar tastes best)
2 tablespoons orange juice

All you do is combine all of the ingredients into a bowl and whip with a fork and viola! This only serves one, so it's great for when you're trying to make a meal out of smorgasbord leftovers in the fridge, but if you're cooking for the family this may not be the best bet.

In other news, I had my last day with the Engler's yesterday =(.  I'm so blessed to have been a part of their family for the past year, and I'm really going to miss these kiddos!  Probably my favorite picture in the whole wide world from when we made Dora the Explorer's princess castle cake:



Getting ready for the big move tomorrow! The living room is a disaster (sorry Horton).  I was packing up last night and all of the boxes in my room were kind of stressing me out, so I put them in the living room.  Unfortunately, now the living room stresses me out.  At least Nora is having fun....
