Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I do love fall so much, the cooler weather, turning leaves, fire in the fireplace. But this week I have been missing our outdoor summertime fun. We were BBQing almost every night, sitting on the back deck, or around the fire pit, and enjoying animal watching (I now have 5 deer and several big fat well fed squirrels). So when I heard that the weather was supposed to warm up, and dry out a tad, I immediately made plans to use the grill. I was already making Cold Sesame Noodles for my Secret Recipe Club post and grilled chicken with an Asian flair seemed the perfect choice to accompany that tasty side.

Cold Sesame Noodles #SecretRecipeClub

The perfect side dish for your next Asian meal. These sesame noodles are wonderful served warm or cold.

For this month's Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog Feast on the Cheap, written by the mother-daughter duo of Mary Anne and Mariel. Mary Anne has been a caterer for the last 20+ years, and firmly believes that healthy, home-made food doesn't have to take a ton of money or hours spent in the kitchen. Mariel has grown up with her mother's fabulous cooking, which has opened her up to experimenting with different flavors, textures, and cuisines.

French Toast Pigs in a Blanket #SundaySupper

Sunday Supper is showing you how you can feed your family delicious dishes for not a lot of money. How about a smoky, sweet sausage surrounded but an eggy pillow of bread, dusted with powdered sugar, and drizzled with maple syrup? French toast meets the family favorite dinner, for this great twist on Pigs in a Blanket! 

This weeks theme for Sunday Supper is Budget Meals, and I really thought about what I wanted to share with you. There are so many things you can make without breaking your pocket book. But when I really sat down and thought about it, I was reminded of one of my kids' favorite meals. Breakfast for dinner. Whenever I made breakfast for dinner you would have sworn it was Christmas. They were more excited for breakfast at dinnertime than if I made it in the morning for them!
