    Left-over Moe's (chicken bowl with black beans, veggies and no cheese and no rice) with Trader Joe's baked plantain chips after my closing restaurant shift. Even eating healthy, the struggle is still real.

    The other recipes, same ingredients but with bean sprouts that you can get at ht, and instead of chopped the carrots,green beans and cabbage, I thinly slice the green beans, shredded green cabbage and matchstick cut carrots, cook like a stir fry but don't over cook the vegetables, because when you wrapped the cooked ingredients with your wrapper and I deep fry slowly. Sorry I usually don't measure when I cook

    Kathy S. - My Spring Roll is called Lumpia in my country (Philippines) it's a little different than the typical Chinese spring roll, Mine is just very simple, there's two different type of springs rolls that I make

    The first one is
    Finely chopped carrots
    Thinly slice green beans
    Chopped green cabbage
    Chopped green onions
    1-2 chopped fresh garlic
    Meat, either ground beef, chicken, pork,or Turkey whatever you like or you can combine the meat, cabbage,green onion,carrots,green beans together in the food processor or blender until finely chopped.its easier than chopping individually after that sauteed the garlic with olive oil, next the combine meat and vegetables, 1/2 a cup of chicken broth, salt and pepper or you can put 1 teaspoon of chicken base or beef base if it's gluten free if not just salt or gluten free soysauce and adjust the taste to your liking. After the meat is cook let it cool and drain the juice if there's a lot of juice so it's not saggy.

    Tonight is gourmet buffet with chicken pot pie, BBQ, pork chops and peas as options. Possibly side salad or fresh fruit as additional sides. Today I will make chicken salad for the Saturday. I found homemade veggie soup in the freezer. That is for Sunday since it is going to turn cooler.

    I am really thinking a nice Cheeseburger cooked on the grill, maybe with some onion rings- too nice to be inside
