How can I be sad when I have breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Spring Rolls

I was at a Pho restaurant last week, and my friend ordered spring rolls, which made me want to make some spring rolls. Because obviously I'm not going to pay for something I can easily make myself.

We don't really follow a recipe for this, as we just get spring roll wrappers and stuff to put inside of them. Giant Eagle was selling 2lb bags of shrimp for $11 each, so I had to get a bag.

When I make spring rolls with my mom, she always sautes shrimp with onions and oyster sauce. I feel like this makes the shrimp not as aesthetically pleasing, but much more flavorful.

The other ingredients we used were:

  • Vermicelli noodles
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Thai Basil
  • Imitation Crab
  • Cilantro
  • Fish sauce and hoisin sauce for dipping

We kept trying to make the shrimps visible and pretty like they do in the restaurant, but that wasn't working out. I'm sure our spring rolls tasted way better though.
