Fail – Thai pork stew

Ugh. I’ve had bits of Gotye’s first album stuck in my head for 2 days now. Getting a song stuck in my head is totally normal. Last summer, I had to change the radio station anytime Katy Perry’s Firecracker came on because it instantly would stick in my brain. I don’t even like that song.

Gotye, however, I like. I like him a lot, outside of the fact that I have NO idea how to pronounce his name and usually think it’s spelled Goetye.

But, seriously, 2 days?! The mustic is haunting and beautiful, but it’s creeping me out a little bit that it won’t leave me alone.


This Thai Pork Stew also creeps me out. (I knew you were waiting for a tie in.) It had all the makings of a spectacular dish: common ingredients swirl together in the slow cooker to make a spicy peanut sauce.

Oh, how I love peanut sauce. I was hooked after my first bite of Lulu’s Rainbow Peanut Noodles. Done. In love. Put peanut sauce on anything and I’ll eat it.



But this, this thick cloying, palette coating sauce has ruined me for the time being. I take one look at these pictures and want to rinse my mouth out just from the memory of the taste. I’ve looked at other peanut sauce based recipes in the past month and I know I can’t do it. I’m not ready. I need more time… and maybe more Goatye… err Goyet… err whatever.

Your posts keep getting wittier and wittier. And you know how much I like wit!
Almost as much as I like Thai food (that was my own little tie in). I went to thailand equal parts for the Buddhas and the food.
I’m confident you’ll find a great peanut sauce recipe. And then You’ll. Share. It.

Oh! Thanks! I hope I can continue to live up to this reputation I’m getting ;)
Also, I’m still insanely jealous that you’ve eaten real Thai food. I’d like to remain friends with you so please stop throwing it in my face (unless you’re going to give me some recipes to try).
