EATS: Sunday Supper Summer Roll


Sunday supper is often the one meal that the monkey clan gather together around the dining table after a busy week/end, to recharge with delicious foods and love.  We recently got into setting our ingredients out and having everyone make their own summer rolls.   Not only is this quick to prepare, each person gets to be creative with what and how they eat their rolls.

    Even if the kids are long gone, I still always make food on Sunday night – just before all my favorite tv shows start! (so I don’t get funny cravings in the middle of them)

    This is such a great post…first just the talent you show within this post (photography, cooking and writing), and then this looks so good as well. Cheers for Vietnamese food tonight for me :-) thanks for the inspiration.
