Today I got to meet my sister-in-law for the first time. She's a beauty. All 8 pounds of her. Yes, that's right, I didn't gain her through marriage, but by birth. Brad's dad and his girlfriend of about 8 years Teresa had a baby girl named Alivia. She was born Tuesday. I held her and realized how big my little baby's gotten. I can't believe Chase's almost 3! It made me wish I was the one with the new baby. Darn my retoflexed uterus! No more babies for me. I was hoping to one day talk Brad into getting his vasectomy reversed, but my chances of getting pregnant and carrying a baby to term are now slim. Enough of my belly aching. These spicy peanut chicken sticks were yummy. I found the recipe over at at Krista's Kitchen. After trying her grilled egg and cheese sandwiches the other night I knew these would be great too. The only thing I will change next time's adding the full about of cayenne pepper. I just put a dash in because I didn't want to burn the kids mouths off. I'll chance it next time! Thanks Krista for another great recipe!

1 garlic clove, minced
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
In a small bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. Set aside 3 tablespoons marinade for sauce. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag;add onion and chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate sauce. If grilling the chicken, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. Thread chicken onto 8 soaked wooden skewers. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once.
