peaceful spring rolls


My last post was my harmony chicken recipie, which comes in handy when transitioning from work to home in the afternoons. I couldn't resist posting another recipie, however, since I very much enjoyed making these spring rolls with Andre last night.

Ingredients:
- Rice wraps
- Cellophane noodles
- Boston lettuce
- Thickly sliced carrots and cucumbers
- Grilled chicken strips
- Mint and basil leaves leaves
- Peanut sauce or hoisin sauce

Pour boiling water on cellophane noodles and soak for 15 minutes until soft. Submerge a rice wrap in a bowl of water and place on a piece of cloth. Fill the wrap with noodles, lettuce, chicken, carrots, cucumbers, mint and basil to taste. Roll the wrap like a burrito. Serve chilled with peanut or hoisin sauce on the side.

Andre's chubby little hands were able to manage it all, except for the wrapping part where he got a lot of help from mom. We had a nice meal together and the noodles provided some slurping fun for the boys.
