Iuls' Go-To Peanut-Citrus Sauce
Makes 4 cups/32 servings

1 cup smooth, unsalted peanut butter
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp grated turmeric
2 teaspoons sriracha
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground Ceylon cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
Zest and juice of 2 oranges (about 1 Tbsp and 1/2 cup, respectively)
Zest and juice of 1 lime (about 1/2 tsp and 1/8 cup, respectively)

Mix everything up in a bowl. Cover. Refrigerate overnight. (Optional: strain the sauce to make it completely smooth.) Slather on everything, or mix with noodles of your choice. Add veg. Devour.

A serving is 2 Tbsp (the calorie counter says that it's "32," which is a bug). The following label comes from Calorie Count's replacement calorie counter, which is pretty good (in spite of the bug).

I really need to try that. It sounds so good!

It's so good, and today, I'm turning what's left of it into a roasted carrot and peanut soup with coconut milk and extra lime. Yum!

Came back because Shog wanted me to tell you that it's more acidic than he would like, and that you should slowly add the juice until you reach a level with which you're comfortable. :D

(And I need to blog about our cooking box adventures, but I keep forgetting to document the unboxing and just... everything. Urgh.)

Ooo! I've seen those. Do you like yours?

So far, we absolutely love our cooking box. We have a subscription for three meals (for two persons) a week, but they are really flexible – we can order more or less or even skip a whole week, depending on our schedule. They e-mail us a suggestion with three meals, and then we can adjust our cooking box depending on our tastes, choosing from eighteen recipes each week, including appetizers, desserts, soups, pasta & risotto dishes, meals with meat or fish...

Everything we've tried so far was very good, and some dishes were absolutely spectacular. Prep and cooking time is between 20 and 50 minutes, and it's just challenging enough for us. We're eating lots of vegetarian options, and enjoying new dishes, like Bibimbap or Pho. There always fresh herbs that we might not get where we live, and the quality of the products is really great. It's less stress for me, since now I don't have to make up a meal plan from scratch, and less stress for HH, since now he doesn't have to go shopping for everything. We are having lots of fun cooking together, too.

That sounds wonderful! I've been thinking about trying a cooking box as a change of pace, but I think I'll wait until next winter because our farm and farmers' markets will be opening again soon, and we live at them from spring-fall. :D
