Life is a bowl of Cherries

Yes- its true life can be a bowl of delicious cherries... if you are intentional about it!
A weekend with family friends and good food... is my bowl of cherries.

Tonight's menu...

Now I LOVE spring rolls... I have also never made them... so this is a first for all of us!

preparation is the key to all great cooking. I chopped basil, cilantro, cucumbers, carrots and celery...

Then I dipped the rice wrap in room temp water... in the meantime I boiled the maifun.( cellophane noodles.)

Thawed and rinsed shrimp and set aside.

I placed all the ingredients in TWO rice wraps... ( easier to handle than one.)

(Why- yes that is my Wedgewood Dinner plat in cream/queenshape that i scored for nickles on a recent hunt.)

Another great find!

I found this fantastic kaffir Lime Chili sauce at our local "SPROUTS" store... it is perfection!
Then to wash it all down A fresh squeezed greyhound. Summer fresh. ( I also like to salt the rim... when I have bar keepers salt!)

A perfectly light summer meal and top it all off with a bowl of cherries!
Bon Appetit!
