I had a dressy Friday outfit post (featuring an amazing pair of over the knee, forest green, suede boots) planned… and then life happened. I worked late, my craptastic camera doesn’t have timer mode and no one was home to help me snap pics. After a lot of huffing and puffing I said the hell with it; threw on leggings and a cardi and trudged to D’s.
By the time I got to D’s I was in a foul mood. All the effort and planning I’d put into my Friday outfit post was wasted… so frustrating! I decided to make the best out of it and do a post about making D egg rolls.
We used to make these when I was growing up and some of my favorite childhood memories are of rolling egg rolls with my parents and sisters.

A large necklace or bright accessory is the perfect way to add a punch of color and personality to an otherwise casual, lounging around outfit. Use statement pieces like this necklace to tie together colors schemes, break up monochromatic looks or add detail to an otherwise simple outfit.
*I promise to share more professional & dressy outfit posts this week. Thank you for your patience while I work out all the kinks. For me style is about learning and evolving. I’m looking forward to chronicling my own personal blogging and style evolution with you.*
Golden Brown Goodness!
Saute your filling, place a quarter cup (or less) in the middle of a wanton wrapper, and roll for egg roll perfection. We browned them in oil then baked then in the oven for an extra crispy outside!
We ended up having more wrappers than filing so I decided to make sweet, dessert egg rolls with the extra wanton wrappers. I used a few frozen raspberries, D’s mom’s homemade yellow plum jelly, and some fresh slices of mango for the filling… SO tasty. I’d never made dessert egg rolls before but it was interesting being able to try both sweet & savory egg rolls!
