Today I had good intentions of making a beef dish for dinner. First, I left the house without taking the beef out of the freezer and into the fridge to thaw. I figured I could get out of the office early enough to swing by the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients, including the beef. Unfortunately, I got out of the office later than expected. When I walked out of the building it was downpouring so hard. Then my normal 7 minute commute home took 30 minutes. So my good dinner intentions went down the drain.
I decided to try to perfect my veggie egg rolls from last week. This time, I added the sesame ginger dressing to the veggie mix to give it more zip. I also brushed them in an egg white wash instead of spraying them with Pam. 3 egg rolls for 4 PP.
Then I attempted strawberry tarts with the Nasoya egg roll wrappers. Tasty little treats but I need to perfect the “look”. I put the wrapper into a muffin tin, sprinkled cinnamon, used an egg white wash (from earlier), and baked them. I added a warm layer of sugar-free strawberry jam mixed with vanilla extract to the bottom of the “tart”, added the fresh strawberries, then “glazed” them with more of the jam-vanilla mixture. Some day soon, when I can get them to look prettier, or when Danica or Tracy come over to “bail” me out, I will show you a picture of the final product.
After that attempt I had two wrappers left. I sprinkled them with cinnamon, and cut them into triangles. I sprayed them with Pam and baked them. 45 triangles for 4 PP
So of course I must leave you with…
If at first you don’t succeed, try try again.
