I’m going in an odd beat direction for a Mother’s Day post. I lack the time to do the one in my head justice. On the other hand this one kind of rolled into being tonight.
Spring means construction and that means not much time to create meals. Today was no exception except that it is Mother’s Day.
We did pre plan the idea so we had the groceries on hand although we did deviate and use some garden freshness! We made spring rolls for the “What’s on Your Plate” monthly challenge hosted so graciously by Deb at The Widow Badass and Donna at Retirement Reflections.
We took it up a notch by using the good china dishes. Needless to say there was so a cold beer but it didn’t make the photo.
So there you have it. Not a typical post but a #what’sonyourplate blogging challenge post. No recipe really just a basic concept of what we have had in them and what we had on hand. I didn’t add cilantro to the list so we substituted the chives from the garden. Peanut sauce was stellar. Considering it was the first time we’ve made these we were both pleased with the results.
- 1/4 c peanut butter
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp soya sauce
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tsp maple syrup
Next time I might do 1 tbsp sesame oil and 1 tbsp chili oil for a little kick.
