I'm thinking a one-dish meal of grilled Italian sausage, green and red peppers, and onions with penne. I still have some Loaded Chocolate Brownie ice cream for dessert.

We had chicken and rice (from our leftover roast chicken) baby lima beans, fresh yellow squash, fried okra and iced tea. For dessert which we will have a little later, we are having ambrosia made from clementines and coconut and maybe a cookie.

Pounded chicken breasts stuffed with chopped peanuts, peanut butter, onions, garlic, soy sauce, and ginger. Cooked in chicken broth mixed with more soy sauce, honey, and butter. Couscous and a green veggie of some sort on the side.

I used the scallions that I chopped here:

and added them to Dan Dan Noodles. I was seriously considering foaming the peanut sauce but then decided against it.

Thanks. There's two basic versions of this dish: with or without peanuts. Both versions have to be spicy, however. I like to use fresh Thai chilis for the heat and forget the chopped peanuts, I use peanut butter in the sauce.

i've found that peanuts help cut the heat of the chilis, to the point of being indispensible in many dishes. i wonder if foam would have the same effect as a peanut sauce, or ground peanuts.

btw, i.c., love the avatar, speaking of foam.

A foam doesn't really have enough body to cut the heat of a chile. It's more of a way of adding a flavor to a dish without really affecting the texture or composition because the foam itself is so airy. But there's two kinds, the second of which has more body and may help to cut heat if used correctly. They type that I usually do incorporates a liquid and the use of an immersion blender to add the airyness. The second type uses gelatin sheets, a whipped cream dispenser and CO2. The second type has more body and looks like whipped cream. However it can only be served cold. The first type of foam can made from a hot or cold liquid.
