My Favorite Marinade

This is my favorite marinade for pork chops or salmon, but I am sure it would be great on chicken as well.

1/3 part honey to
2/3 parts soy sauce
4 cloves minced garlic
ginger to taste

7-up Chicken Marinade

Easy marinade for grilled chicken.

1 can of 7-up or sprite
1/4 cup soy
4 cloves minced garlic

Marinate over night for best results.

Thai Peanut Noodles

We love Thai food at our house. This is a simple weeknight meal. It came together in 15 minutes. I love that!! It is reminiscent of Pad Thai, but doesn't have quite the same flavor. This is a perfect vegetarian meal, but is also great with chicken.

Thai Peanut Noodles

1/2 cup chicken broth
3 tbsp. peanut butter
1-2 tsp. siracha sauce
3 tbs. soy sauce
1/2 tbs. honey (I used this to taste, and used a tbs. and a half I bet.)
1 1/2 tbs fresh grated ginger (I used a lot less than this, because I hate grating ginger and it was fine.)
1-2 cloves minced garlic
8 oz linguine pasta
2 chopped green onions
chopped peanuts
quartered limes

Boil noodles to al dente. While, boiling combine sauce ingredients. Bring to a simmer. Combine sauce and noodles.

Garnish with lime wedges, cilantro, and peanuts before serving.
