Peanut Sauce

If you have a peanut allergy, you may want to step away from this post, unless you are hardcore and eat peanuts just to spite your allergy.

Peanut sauce.  It's an odd one.  What can you really even say about peanut sauce?  It's muddy and delicious.  And, if you have a peanut butter addiction like me, any way that you can spread the peanut butter into the savory zone is like, really cool.

Can we also take a moment to discuss this photo shoot???  HOW DOES ONE MAKE BROWN SAUCE LOOK APPEALING? I tried all kinds of angles, accessories, backdrops, lighting, plating…but at the end of the day, it was still brown sauce.

I call it the Taco-Salad-Syndrome.  Once you’ve broken the beautiful presentation of a taco salad, especially one with refried beans and salsa in it, what you have on your plate looks, well, terrifying.  BUT, doesn’t it just taste wondrous?

Now, I could title this sauce TSS Peanut Sauce, but I’m guessing that would terrify you (especially my women readers) even more than the look of it. No?  Okay…I’ve taken it too far. Let’s just move on to the recipe.
