Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die tomorrow.
Well it was strange to leave the leftover snow in Kansas and head into 66-degree weather in Oklahoma, and by strange I mean wonderful. I love a white Christmas and all, but now that it is behind us, I am all for the warmer weather. Being at home is a great feeling, but I sure did enjoy seeing my family and friends.
Sadly, I did not get as much accomplished as I would have liked today, but I did get most of our things unpacked. Settling in for the night, we decided to watch Friends with Benefits. It was super funny, and I would rank it higher than No Strings Attached in my line up of movies about random hook-ups.
Movies go well with wine, so I went to my local liquor shop and bought a bottle of Castle Rock Pinot Noir. The wine was smooth and delicious, and my non-red wine drinking roommate even enjoyed a glass or two.
After the day of traveling and unpacking, I decide against cooking tonight, but I did want to share with you another one of my brother’s creations:
Vegetable Spring Rolls
Spring roll wrappers
1. Place rice on wrapper.
2. Add vegetables, which should be chopped into matchstick size.
3. Tuck in sides and roll wrapper.
We dipped our rolls into a peanut and sweet chili sauces.
I don’t typically choose spring rolls, but I enjoyed how much lighter the wrapper was from the typical egg roll wrapper I would use.
We really did eat quite a bit of Asian cuisine while I was home. Why? Because it is amazing! It is one of my top choices for sure.
Have you rented any good movies lately?
