Accidental Homicide Attempt

I know, I know…accidental and attempt don’t go together in a sentence!  But I swear I wasn’t trying to kill my family with this recipe:  Thai Peanut Butter Sauce .

I knew it was too easy.  And I knew that DH would hate it the second that I taste tested it.  And I knew that when the recipe said 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, that it was far too much for my wimpy-tongued family too handle.  What I don’t know is why I made it anyway. 

Maybe it was because I realized that I have five jars of natural peanut butter that are going to expire in October.  But still…why don’t I ever learn???  I know perfectly well that a whole teaspoon of cayenne pepper could be used as evidence in a court of law.  I wonder if I’m harboring some secret angst towards the other members of my family?

So, the big question now is…

What’s for dinner tonight?

Aha!  Maybe that was my motive…to get them to stop asking that damn question!  Hmmm…

Oh, BTW, the recipe would probably be really tasty with about a tenth of the cayenne pepper.  I think next time (snicker) that I will try agave in place of the corn syrup.

And maybe I can convince MIL to make all her x-mas cookies ahead of time and freeze them…to use up my peanut butter!

    Joybelle,

    At least, you tried ;)….. why don’t you have your men make you their favorite dish??? I think it is great to teach men in the home culinary skills!!!

    Take care and I hope you are all well.

    Although I did find a thai peanut sauce recipe that I loved, and I CAN’T do heat. None. Zero.

    None.

    When I make muffins, I drop a spoonful of peanut butter in the middle before they go in the oven. That’s another good way to use peanut butter in large quantities! Good luck!
