I enjoy watching each child with their different special times. Lizzie always disappears in the late afternoons, and I know she's up in her bedroom reading her Bible. Allen is a night owl and reads before bedtime. Sometimes he reads very late...well after midnight. Last week he came tip toeing into my bedroom around 1 am and was all excited because he had just finished the book of Revelations. Anna reads first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. Ruthie looks forward to reading well enough to have quiet time on her own.
You place the crunchy rice papers in very hot water until they become pliable. Then you take them out of the water and dab with paper towels to dry them. Fill and eat. We filled ours with shrimp, avocado, cucumber and romaine lettuce. The only thing missing was the delicious sweet and sour sauce that I need to look for next time.
Maggie didn't realize the ingredient amounts were in metric. She had to get my electronic scale out! She was exhausted when they were all finished. Next time she makes them she will translate the amounts and write them down.
Tonight we are all weary...and tomorrow is another big day. We will be going to help Grandaddy cook dinner for his church. My brother is ill, so he won't be going. None of the shopping has been done yet, so we will be very tired tomorrow night!
