Happy Monday!  Is it just me or did that weekend go by at record speed?  I love not waking up with an alarm clock so I was totally not looking forward to it today.  Plus, I ate ALL.THE.CARBS. this weekend….pizza, french fries, cupcakes, I really am looking forward to cleaning things up with the diet this week. And this is the time of year I try to clean out the cabinets and use up anything I can find just so I don’t have to trek out to the store in the blustery cold weather.  It’s quite chilly here in the Northeast right now but the sun is shining which makes it seem like it’s warm outside….until you actually get outside.  They’re calling for snow the next couple days but it’s not that huge snow storm I’m hoping for…it’s just going to be a nuisance. All the more reason to keep a fully stocked kitchen.

So, to minimize trips to the store, I like to keep a fully stocked pantry during the winter months but still try to punch up the flavor of my dinners to make them seem brighter.  Kind of like a culinary vacation, if you will.  Things like hot sauce, coconut milk, lime juice…anything I can think of to keep meals bright and flavorful.

This Satay Chicken with Spicy Peanut Sauce makes a frequent appearance on my family dinner table all year long.  It’s so easy to make and you can even marinade the chicken overnight for a quick dinner during the week. And who doesn’t love food on a stick?  My kids will, basically, eat anything if it’s served on a stick like these Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs.  Plus, it helps to keep portion control in check if you’re following a healthy diet this year.

I cook the Satay Chicken on a grill pan when it’s too chilly to cook outside but when the weather is warmer, they are fantastic cooked on the grill.  Just remember to soak your skewers for at least an hour before hand to prevent them from catching on fire.  I’ve done this…it’s not fun and you end up eating pizza delivery. Soak those skewers.

The Spicy Peanut Sauce is easy to make and only takes about a minute.  You can make it in advance and leftovers are amazing drizzled over this Thai Chicken Salad or used to dip fresh veggies!
