Easy all-purpose peanut sauce

I miss Indonesia. Nowhere else quite like it on earth with its sweet and savory sights and smells. One of the things I miss most are the peanut sauces you can get at any road side stall. Sate - meat on a stick - was and is one of my favorite foods on earth. Making it though can be a pain at times if you're trying to be authentic and/or you don't have much time. Fear not though, I have your quick 1 minute solution to great tasting peanut sauce.

2 tablespoons almond/peanut/cashew butter.
1 tablespoon thai chili sauce
1 tablespoon milk

Combine in a small dish, put in microwave for 30 seconds on defrost to heat, done.

Now depending on how you like it you can embellish it as well. Toss in a packet of ginger (leftover from takeout sushi of course) or maybe some tabasco sauce for heat or brown sugar for sweetness. Throw it on chicken for the grill, or in stir-fry to mix things up a bit.
