What did you have for lunch today?
Was it tasty? Was it healthy? Was it difficult to make?
Did you buy it from a store? Did you reheat it?
Lunch, for me, is usually reheated leftovers. Or some ingredients smushed between two pieces of bread. I love eating lunch, but I rarely make it. When I whip up “spring rolls”, though, I feel good about lunch. It tastes nice. It’s fresh, and yummy, and there’s no guilt involved. It’s healthy and fun to make.
If you want to make my version of spring rolls you only need two things: rice paper and veggies. No deep fat fryer involved!
Is it official? Can we bring out the banners, start the parade? Let’s share cookies and lemonade everyone, because it’s SPRING! It’s finally spring! Hallelujah! We did it. We made it through the long, cold night and we’re now awakening to a bright, warm morning. For students, this is fairly bad timing: the entire month of April promised to be overwhelmed by final papers, assignments, and exams – and overwhelmed it was.
And while Mother Nature is still making up her mind – cold, damp days are still far too frequent for my taste – spring ultimately promises rain, greenery, and sunshine. Delightful!
How to make the most of it? Well, since each season is unique, they each deserve to be celebrated in their own special way. And summer is slowly creeping up on us, so let’s get excited about springtime while it’s still here!
