Home made spring rolls.

Being in Oklahoma city, one has the chance to see a variety of culture. My brother and sister-in-law took me to this Vietnamese restaurant, for breakfast. Yes, I said breakfast. You're probably thinking "what is there even avaiable for breakfast. Well, to settle your thoughts we ended up eating the lunch menu (there was no breakfast menu.)
     They introduced me to a dish that I have never consumed before, ______________ . It was amazing! the broth, noodle, brisket, chives, and cilantro blending together perfectly.

After our breakfast/lunch was finished we went to a Vietnamese supermarket. This I was somewhat prepared for. I assumed that it would be similar to china town of New York. I was right in some aspects but not all. There was produce and other goods. As for the meat... it all was pretty basic until it came to the fish. Some was cut, others were still whole, but then there was a new one I have not seen. There were massive amounts of fish tanks with fish swimming around. It was certainly interesting.
      Anyways, the reason we went there was to gather supplies to make our own spring rolls. Making them turned out to be remarkable easy.

First gather all preferred ingredients. We chose shrimp, lettuce, noodles, mint, cilantro, and pickled vegetables. 

Take a rice  tortilla and soak it in water for a few short seconds and then lay it on a flat clean surface/cutting board.

Then place the (in our case) the shrimp a lower portion of the wrapping, about 1.5 inches from the bottom. *The reason we layed the shrimp down first is because this will be the part showing after it is rolled. *

Then add the noddles and any other ingredients you would like. You could also try substituting rice for the noodles.

Next step is to fold in each side like a burrito.

Then starting from the bottom, tightly roll up, making sure the sides stay folded in.

Once rolled, place on a platter and enjoy! :)
