We are in the process of updating our office. We want to have a photography theme for the office. We chose this theme since my husband is a photographer. You can check out some of his work here.

The office was originally painted a sea green color when we bought the house couple years ago. I didn’t mind the color at first, but now that I see it every day, I’m getting tired of seeing the color. I want the office to look more modern. We will repaint the office a gray color possibly this summer.

Chinese with Peanut Butter Chili Sauce

Meal Monday is a weekly post series on the subject of food. I’ll talk about my love for food to sharing recipes that I love cooking to food tips.

Thanks again to my husband for writing on my blog last week sharing his steaks on the grill!

What is one of your favorite meals? My husband loves it when I make Chinese. I make a quick and easy stir fry and a Chinese pasta with a peanut butter chili sauce. I once tried a different sauce to try something different, but it just wasn’t the same. So now I stick with my peanut butter chili sauce whenever I’m making Chinese with pasta.

When I started making this Chinese pasta, I used a recipe I found in a magazine. I’ve used the piece of paper from the magazine so much that it is slightly wrinkled and has some splashes of food on it.

When I make my peanut butter chili sauce, I add couple other ingredients to make the sauce my own. I love adding sweet chili sauce and Chinese mustard to add a little kick to the pasta. Tip: A small amount of Chinese mustard goes a long way.

If you have kids who doesn’t like spicy food, dish their Chinese up before you add the sweet chili sauce and Chinese mustard. That is what I do for my girls, so the pasta isn’t spicy.

Here is my recipe for Chinese with peanut butter chili sauce.
