Dinner on Trader Joe's tonight

Every once in a while...who wants to cook? Right? After getting caught having a hard nap when Brenda got home from work. The kind of nap where its tough to wake and you're groggy and fuzzy? Just me? Whatever.

We picked up these tasty little pot stickers our last trip to Joe's and I wasn't in the mood. A very generous portion comes in this small bag and super easy to prepare but not a decent sauce in the house.

From what I have on hand I could surely pull something together. No green onions or savory tidbits so lets go sweet. Apricot preserves? Now we're talking. A bit of soy sauce, a splash of rice vinegar and a dab of Sambal Oebek. A bit of spice cabinet alchemy and a last dash of sesame oil and voila! A sweet and sour coating for our crisp-tender pillows of goodness and dinner is served!

For the sauce impaired:

In a small sauce pan add
1/2 cup Apricot preserves (or peach or whatever)
3 T soy sauce
2 T rice vinegar
2 T brown sugar
1 T Sambal Oebek, garlic and pepper paste
1/2 cup water w 1 T cornstarch
1 t garlic powder
Salt to taste
1 t sesame oil
Let boil till thick, correct the seasoning and serve.
