Summer Greetings & my Pampered Chef Adventure!

I don't know about you all but my 2017 is going by soooo fast!  I am shocked that it has been so long since I posted...apologies!

Lots of changes for me...good over all for sure!  The one I really want to share with you all is my adventure as a Pampered Chef person.  I have been a fan of Pampered Chef for over 20 years...which is crazy that I am old enough to use numbers like that...LOL!  I think that stuff sneaks up on a person for sure.

My children are both off to college and I was ready for a new adventure plus like a said I just love their stuff.  What really, really sold me was their amazing spiralizer!  I have been trying to incorporate much more veggies in my diet and I love spring win, win with this amazing tool.

When doing spring rolls I have learned it is all about the I get all my veggies spiralized, the carrot, english cucumber or zucchini, poach my shrimp in lime juice with minced garlic, julienne some cabbage or iceburg lettuce, sweet red peppers & sweet onions, make lime wedges and have fresh basil and yummy slices of avocado on hand.  I simply put the strands of rice vermicelli into very hot tap water and put a lid on the container right when I start my prep.

Then you just quickly dip your wrapper into a bowl of room temp water, lay it on your plate and start assembling & wrapping your rolls.  My favorite dipping sauce, by far, is a mixture of 2 parts Lighthouse Ginger Sesame dressing, 1 part soy sauce with a dollop each of Garlic Chili Sauce and Sesame Oil - so yummy!  I use this also on any leftover veggies or vermicelli threads as a cool sauce...tasty with just a little kick to keep you alert!

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial.  My plan is to try and share a product I love and how I use it each week.  So many things have me week is the cold brew coffee maker and how I do iced summer coffee...very refreshing!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy these little is a bit out of my comfort zone but 2017 is all about learning new things for me!  Enjoy your weekend!
