Happy almost Friday! I made you Thai…again!
Wouldn’t it be nice if today was Friday instead of Thursday? I’ve been wishing for the weekend since Tuesday. For some reason, this week has felt unnaturally long to me. I’ve felt…cloudy all week. I think it’s allergies. Or a distinct lack of sleep. In any event, it’s Friday eve and that’s the next best thing.
You know what you should do on Friday? Invite some friends over and make these chicken skewers. You’ll totally blow them away and they’ll think you picked them up at a super authentic Thai restaurant. I’m so serious—these are as good or better than any chicken satay I’ve had anywhere. Serve it with some Peanut Sauce and Cucumber Relish, and you’ll be in heaven.
The marinade is pretty unreal. I sort of can’t believe how good it is. The list of ingredients is slightly long, but it’s pretty easy to just throw it all together with the chicken and stick it in the fridge for the day, or overnight. You may or may now dye your entire kitchen and yourself yellow from the turmeric, though. …Or maybe that’s just me. It’s hard to tell since I’m so much messier than the average person.
These would be a perfect thing to throw on the grill for a nice Spring night. That is, if you don’t live in Seattle. The weather here can’t make up its mind. One minute the sun is shining, the next it’s hailing. Not even kidding, it hailed so freakin’ hard today that I had to video it and send it to Mikey who was at work, where it apparently wasn’t even raining. Whatever, I have a grill pan, and that’s good enough!
