Not just a fun guy

There is more to life than mushrooms, not much more but more none-the-less and this more is spring rolls. Easy to prepare and easier to eat. Typically made with mint, lemon grass, rice noodles, bean sprouts, pickled ginger and shrimp this is not iron clad in my book. Omit the shrimp and replace with fish or mushrooms, omit everything and fill them with sauteed zuchinni and omelete. Experiment! (Santa Banana got me a new camera so thats why the pictures look better, my fuji sucked canned yams)






Nuke some beets to soften and then drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt and pop them in a hot oven and they come out tasty like this. I made a reduction of balsamic vinager, red wine and sugar mixed with the beet liquid from the nuking and it set these babies off nicely.



A guava cheese tart experiment. Filo pastry, guava jelly and cream cheese and thats a green apple sliver as a garnish.
