I was grocery shopping when I came across the above. I always love ordering Vietnamese spring rolls when I go out to Vietnamese restaurants, so I wanted to see if I could make them at home. I remembered that I had bought shrimp meat a couple of days ago and figured I could use that instead of the big pieces one may usually find in them. After all, I am on a budget. Also, I had a slaw mix that I used to make egg rolls a few days before that needed to be used. What can I say, I like my rolls. So, I got to work fryin’ up some shrimp meat.
After my meat was cooked, I used warm water to soften the wrappers, because they were like paper. This was the most annoying process ever. I tore each and every one.
Some of my rolls ended up having more than one wrapper, because I would tear it as I rolled then I would just throw another wrapper on top to cover the hole. They came out okay though.
A little awkward to eat though. My daughter thought they were too sticky…
…so she tore them apart and just ate the shrimp.
Next, I made some chicken wings. I put salt and pepper on them and baked at 350° for about 30 minutes. While it was baking, I made a sauce. I used soy sauce, honey, and the very last squirt of my spicy brown mustard. When the chicken was done, I just mixed it all up in a bowl.
