Thai Style Peanut Sauce with Maple


I use this sauce when I do not have a lot of time to prepare dinner and want to indulge myself and guests just a bit.  The recipe is from my friend Cindy, a gourmand in the kitchen who is great with devising simple and delicious dishes.  This one you can make in a few minutes with a food processor.  The ingredients should be available at your local supermarket. If you have an Asian grocery store near you maybe stock up on some of the ingredients there as I have found they offer more variety and can be a little cheaper.
