It was about 6:00 am and I just turned over in bed and I heard a voice say, “Happy Anniversary.” LOL If you knew my man you would know he is never awake much less aware of much at 6:00 am.
Yup, 43 years of marriage. You already know it isn’t always perfect. He can “tick” me off and yet I have noticed the older we get the easier it is. Praise the Lord. Don’t get me wrong it has never been exactly hard but we certainly come from different backgrounds.
I remember reading, way back when we were first married and I was not sure I was really happy, something like this: The more you dwell on your unhappiness the more unhappy you become. Make the best of your decision and decide to be happy. Take it to the Lord in prayer. Now that is not exactly how it read but it was good advice that’s for sure.
Here is the Thai Peanut Sauce that goes with the Lettuce Wraps from yesterday. Not everyone will like this, but we do and Bob is not exactly adventuresome in his eating.
This would be good drizzled over stir fried vegetable or over the rice recipe I will give you next week. Be sure you use natural peanut butter with no added sugar and NO partially hydrogenated oil.
5 TBS. peanut butter
3 Tbs. water
1 Tbs. soy sauce
3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
2 tsp. honey–maybe 3
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1.16 tsp. salt
1/16 tsp. cayenne pepper
Put it in the blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Refrigerate until using. Warm the sauce in a microwave before serving. Leftover sauce freezes well. 1 Tbs. 46 Calories
