WoW: Thistle with carrot

My failed dinner

So sad! Last week I went to Thai food for the first time, and while I didn't hate it, I didn't like most of it... except one thing. The peanut sauce was amazingly yummy. Like crunchy peanut butter, just a little sweeter and a tiny tiny bit spicy. I couldn't stop thinking about it, so when in the supermarket, I grabbed a bottle. (I hadn't gone into this blind, I checked Amazon reviews first to find the best rated one.)

Today I bought some chicken so I could use it. Two things jump out at me:
1) It doesn't taste like peanuts at all. The heck? The sauce in the restaurant tasted just like peanut butter, only better.
2) It's way too spicy. It's not just spicy, it's tricky. When I first take a bite it seems fine, then a moment later my mouth is on fire.

As much as I hate wasting food, I find I have to throw mine out yet again. It's a wonder I even try cooking anymore!

That Thai restaurant wasn't too close to me, but I might have to go back just for the yummy sauce. :/
