I realized just this morning why my satay peanut sauce was not spicy enough: I accidentally used curry paste in the peanut sauce instead of chili paste. Duh! I just opened the chili paste and took a taste, and it’s got a great flavor and a lot of kick. It will make all the difference in the world. I can’t believe I made such a significant error. I mean, the sauce was still good, but it had no fire. I guess I have no choice but to make it again this weekend! 🙂
Yesterday was a horrible day at work. One problem on top of another, relentless, all day long. Today and Monday I’m pulling double-duty while a co-worker takes a couple vacation days. This has not been the best week, but when things get bad I just remind myself that a bad day at work is far better than unemployment! That always helps keep things in perspective. That said, I am really looking forward to the weekend.
Speaking of work, I’ve got a lot to accomplish today so I’d better get cracking. Happy Friday!
