Veggie Spring Rolls and Thoughts Of Spring !

 Spring is finally springing!!! I think ??? it has been a really hard winter here. I put on my best game face but let me tell you some days were just so hard. I never thought the madness would end, but somehow it always does and spring once again has shown her pretty little face. And what better way to welcome spring than these pretty little smiling faces. Daffodils and tulips a springtime favorite for me! The perfect little pick me up I needed.

So in honor of spring I decided to whip up these little lemon poppy seed butterfly cupcakes! how cute are they! They were so delicious now low fat ? not a chance, sometimes you just have to Live a Little :-)
I also made these new little wine charms to go with my new blue wine glasses. You can't have wine glasses without cute little beachy charms now can you?
So in keeping with the spring them I made these veggie spring rolls, so simple and so tasty. Just get your self some rice paper, which I found at my local grocery store, chop up your favorite veg ... which I used cucumbers, avocado, shredded cabbage, carrots, edamame , bean sprouts. For the peanut sauce just blend 3/4 cup of peanut butter of your choice with 1/3 cup cooking sherry a pinch of cayenne pepper, 1/3 cup of soy sauce, 1/3 cup water and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. That's it. What have you been up to this spring any new inspiring spring recipes? I am so looking forward to all the simple summer meals. Happy Spring ! Have you noticed my different size pics through out this post? blogger has changed the way you post pics and text so I am still trying to figure it all out, I hate when they go changing things, I am a creature of habit! oh well I will get it... Hope you have you have a good rest of your week I am so happy it's supposed to be 65 tomorrow YIPPEE I am breaking out the sandals :-) Spring is finally here!!!
