shrimp rice paper peanuts

No, it’s not summer any more.  But one summer souvenir that will be coming right along with me into the fall and winter is the summer roll.  Or, more specifically, the re-invented sandwich wrapped in rice paper.

After being unaccountably bashful about rice paper for years, I finally took the plunge and discovered what a boon it is for those of us who fall somewhere in between wanting to take the bread off the sandwich and just giving up and having a salad.

Plus, they’re way easy to pack in a lunchbox.
