For those of you not in Eastern Australia, it has been stinking hot bushfire weather. We have a fire far west of us, and the smoke has been coming across the mountains. Today was hot, smoky and windy - not weather for spaghetti and meatballs or mushroom soup (the things left on my plan).
Instead, for $3.75 we had a slight change of plans. The $3.75 bought rice vermicelli, lime juice and coleslaw mix. And we had satay meatballs with rice noodle salad.
Simple Satay Sauce
1 Can coconut milk (mine was light, but it didn't have to be)
1 Tablespoon red curry paste
2 generous Tablespoons peanut butter
Splash of fish sauce
Combine all ingredients in saucepan and simmer gently until slightly thickened. Add defrosted meatballs and simmer again until heated through.
Serve with rice noodle salad.
