Last Friday week, I was en route to LAX when our plane was suddenly diverted. There had been a shooting at Terminal 3 and chaos ensued, including the diversion of all planes that were due to land. We headed north…to San Francisco.
A 7-hour drive from my desired location. Not that it mattered, I can’t drive anyway. My options were sparse. Spend $2000 on a coach seat from SF to LAX or convince a fellow passenger to drive to LA.
I opted for the latter. My driving companion was a Brit with Robin Thicke looks. My intuition told me, I’d be safe driving 7 hours with a complete stranger. I trusted it. It served me well.
Before we hit the road, I stopped at Plant, an organic eatery at SFO. I chose summer spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce. They were so good, that I decided I’d make them once I returned to New York.
I’m back in New York, and here’s the recipe. I added some kale for a winter infusion.
I picked up the satay sauce from a local Thai restaurant. I decided it was cheaper (and easier) to do that than buy a whole jar of peanut butter and other sauces to make it myself.
Enjoy (without having to be in San Francisco)!Photo Credit: www.thedailywild.com
