Egg Rolls

So a few weeks ago I decided to do some experimenting and made an "Asian" feast for me and my honey.

It started with some egg rolls filled with carrots, cabbage, chicken, mushrooms, and artichoke.
I found that even though they are daunting egg rolls are super easy to make and you can put any range of fillings in them. You can find the wrappers right around the fresh mushrooms or bags of salad at the grocery store.
I then used some sausage filling and leftover banana squash I had mashed up with lemon pepper and made croquettes. I was really nervous about these ones but the hubby loved them, and had wished I'd made more of them.

Then for the finale was some home made honey mustard sauce to dip into and onigiri's.
Now I've tried to make onigiri several times in the past and they always turned out tasteless and nothing compared to the one's I'd tried from the japanese market.
This time I finally found a great sushi rice recipe. Even though the hubby didn't care for them my sister and I loved them and ended up finishing off all the onigiri and rice the very next day.
I found my problem was I kept trying to use the onigiri sprinkle seasoning from the stores, and they just don't taste good to me. So instead went with a classic sushi rice flavor. It was just right.
You can find the sushi rice recipe Here
Definitely worth making again.
