Summer Rolls

A couple of days ago I picked up some Egg Roll Wrappers at the grocery store. I thought, “meh…I can probably make my own eggrolls.” So, today I grated/shredded some red cabbage, red onion, and carrots. I mixed it with some ground turkey which was nice and spicy – I cooked it to make some queso, but I was invited to dinner before I could complete the meal. Either way, I mixed those ingredients with a dash of soy sauce, a sprinkle of ginger, and a smidgen of garlic powder. Whala! The filling for my eggrolls.

Then I had another novel idea. What about a summer roll? You know how eggrolls without meat are spring rolls? Well, I would make summer rolls. I allowed a brick of cream cheese to soften, added 1/2 cup of sugar and some vanilla extract. Maybe the sliced strawberries from earlier and a peach I picked up at the farmer’s market this morning? Sprinkle some ground cinnamon and nutmeg? Excellent! Cream cheese + diced fruit? Tasty filling for my summer rolls! Check the pictures if you don’t believe me. Also, nevermind my crazy chipped fingernail polish. I promise there is no polish in the Summer Rolls.
