No Cooking Today!

Happy Wednesday!  Though not cooking today, I’m definitely eating.  I should practice on rolling these babies.  I apologize, they are not very sexy (the rolls).  First time.  Rice paper wrap is not a Filipino thing, and although I enjoy them eating out, I never tried to make them at home.  Until today.  By the kitchen sink.

Direct from the vegetable crisper (leftover veggies from yesterday), julienned and sliced…I’m proud to present Butternut Squash Sticks and Asparagus Slices in Rice Papers.

This is my new favorite.  So yummy, and I feel great about not frying anything today.
