We can haz Eggroll!

After taking a nap this afternoon, I was feeling a bit better, so I decided to try to make dinner.  I was feeling uh, creative (that’s when Murphy starts asking for a pot pie…)  I had a package of rice mixture that Eric gave me a while ago, and I decided to start with that.  It was a blend of white, red, and  black rice, along with whole oats.  Really pretty in the package, it cooked up entirely lavender.    Tasted fine, but it was a little strange to eat purple rice.  Then I had a package of korma sauce that didn’t really make enough for the family, so I knew I’d need more than just that for the main dish.  I heated the sauce with a bit of fake crab and kale, and let it simmer down.

I’ve always wanted to make spring rolls but have always been a little afraid.  I figured this was a good time to give it a shot.  So I pan-fried some tofu crispy, added some spinach, nori, carrots, avocado, and rice noodles, and rolled them all up in a spring roll shell.  Awesome.  They were really delicious. And much easier than I expected; I will be making them again.  They’ll make great lunch fare.

I’m exhausted now, and sore, but it was worth it.  YUM!

    With good reason! Your life is a bit full.

    Maybe sometime I’ll come visit and cook weird food for you. Sound like fun? =]
