Merrily We Roll Along...

I'm in awe of one of my new housemates... Anna is so organized and she always looks 100% put together, even at 8 in the morning! In the mornings I am often treated to sharing one of her scrumptious fresh, homemade "juices" concocted from a few fresh fruits and veggies. Put through a grinding machine, voila! we have fresh juice! It's noisy but the result is worth it... the yummy, and healthy juice gives me a much needed vitamin and energy boost for the long hours in class and studying at the library.
Our latest housemate bonding moment was a project- making homemade rice paper rolls of the variety one can order at a Vietnamese restaurant. It was super easy and the result was a bunch of healthy, tasty, easily transportable rolls which I gobbled up for lunch the next day. Here's the technique. Thanks Anna!

Thinly slice a variety of veggies. We used red cabbage, carrots, red pepper, onion, and avocado.
Chop some fresh mint
Quickly dip a piece of rice paper in water
place a few slices of each veggie in the center of the paper.
Roll, folding up the ends.
Serve with Sweet Chili sauce

  1. In bright environments, under direct sunlight, for example, the blue is rolex replica strikingly brilliant and is stunning to behold, and at certain angles, it looks almost purplish. In low lighting, the blue somehow disappears, and the bezel looks almost completely black. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that this bi-color bezel is rolex replica sale something of a chameleon of sorts. I appreciate such a quality in a watch, and I think it adds a lot of visual pizzazz and variety, when compared to the plain black bezel of the Rolex GMT-Master II Ref. 116710LN. And, in my personal experience, no rolex replica sale amount of pictures can do justice to the way the bezel reacts to hublot replica uk the light; I do not speak only rolex replica uk for myself, because this is a view shared by many other owners of this watch. Honestly, your thoughts about this watch may change after seeing rolex replica it in the flesh.
