Spring Rolls

Photobucket

I copied and pasted this post directly from my homemaking blog because I just had to share it with you. Also, it's not completely created from whole foods, as the recipe calls for white rice paper and noodles. However, spring rolls are still really, really good for you and my kids just LOVED them!

To make spring rolls, you first go to the Asian market, which happens to be across town, but you get detoured because your brother is with you and wants to take the kids to the pet store...

(For lots more about that activity, go HERE.)

Okay, NOW you go to the Asian store. You wait a really long time in the car for your brother and 15-year-old daughter because you don't want to take the other six kids in. You wait patiently...

So do the kids...

Your brother finally comes out, and you have to take his picture because he just looks so ridiculous, on purpose...

You go home and he starts making the peanut sauce...

Photobucket

He tries to get you to try some, and you do, and it's really, really good...

Photobucket

He gets tired of you taking pictures and he says, "Why don't you put your camera down and help by snapping these?"

Photobucket

You do...

Photobucket

....while he and your 15-year-old daughter thinly slice and mince all manner of vegetables and herbs, including asparagus, cucumbers, carrots, snap peas, spinach, alfalfa, and cilantro...,

They then saute shrimp in butter...,

Photobucket

...cook the rice noodles in boiling water according to the manufacturer's instructions...,

Photobucket

...dip rice paper into boiling water, then immediately roll it into spring rolls. Aren't they lovely?...

Any questions? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for listening.
