Sa-wat dee!

Today we learned a little about Thailand. Boo found it on the map and let us know that Bankok is the capital city. We listened to the national anthem and tried to count to 10 in Thai.

For dinner, we had pork satay with peanut sauce. I thought it was pretty good. Boo liked the satay without the peanut sauce. Bug liked it with the peanut sauce. Ebabe liked to make a mess with the peanut sauce!

Satay Recipe:
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 lb pork
2 tablespoons curry powder
1/2 cup coconut milk

Soak bamboo skewers at least half an hour so that the ends do not burn on the grill. While they are soaking, slice the pork into thin strips that will fit onto the skewers. Mix curry powder, sugar, coconut milk and salt. Marinate the pork for 30 minutes, then put it on to the skewers.
Grill for 10 to 15 minutes. Best served with peanut sauce and cucumbers in vinegar.

Peanut Sauce Recipe:
2 tablespoons peanut butter - we used crunchy
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove minced garlic
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Put all ingredients in a small microwave-safe mixing bowl. Put in microwave for 15 seconds. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds. Pour over satay and/or noodles.
