Vietnamese grilled pork rice paper rolls

"While living in Colorado, I worked for an all Vietnamese company that made wreaths and wall decorations out of red river birch and white willow twigs as their office manager. I worked there for 10 years and became very close to the people that I worked with. Often the owner of the company would treat me to lớn lunch from his favorite Vietnamese restaurant. I always requested this dish. He once told me the name of it but darned if I could ever understand what he was saying, let alone how to lớn spell it. Anyway, I just had to recreate this wonderful Vietnamese dish from memory because I have missed it so much. Here is what I have come up with."

Click here to get to lớn chat: The picture above is of me, but is not a very recent one. It was taken during a very sweet time of my life many years ago. The face is mostly the same, but atlas....everything has aged by about trăng tròn years. I am a little heavier, my hair is not permed anymore và is straight with a slight wave to lớn it, almost lớn my waist with a touch of grey at my temples. I like the picture because it reflects me & my love of the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains near Wellington Lake. I am grandma to Xavier Pryce (aka Zavy) who is 7, hislittle brother, Rylan James, who is 6 & Baby Wyatt who will be 3 in December. They and their momma are the light of my heart. I enjoy hosting a chat room called #Recipezaar on, named after the old site. Many people don"t know this, but I was Recipezaar"s first paid employee when was Recipezaar and Gay & Troy owned it. I am finding it difficult khổng lồ spend as much time here as I used to. I am retired now & spend my days watch my grandsons while their momma works. Trying to lớn spend time on the computer with 3 rowdy, hyper little boys in the house can be frustrating and sometimes even impossible unless their momma is trang chủ to keep an eye on things while grandma indulges herself on the computer.I wish I was as witty a writer as some of the others here on, but I am afraid that all of my creativity and talent goes into my cooking, but I will give this my best shot anyway. I am a single mother lớn one 25 year old daughter (Alicia) and grandma to Xavier Pryce, Rylan James and Wyatt William. They all still live with me, so I am pretty much the boy"s other parent. Cooking is never a chore for me. I collect cookbooks và am an avid reader of anything but have a particular love of horror novels. Stephen King & Dean Koontz are my favorite authors. Although I have degree in office management và graduated with a 3.8 GPA, I must be"s worst spelling thành viên so please excuse me if you notice it in my posts and if you notice it in my recipes, then my thanks in advance for editing the recipe khổng lồ be spelled correctly if you have done so. My screen name is pretty simple và easy to remember, but sometimes people bởi ask me why it says Karen from Colorado instead of Karen from California. It used to be Karen IN Colorado until I moved here khổng lồ Southern California to lớn be near my sister, Morti, after our parent"s deaths in 1996 và 97 and the loss of my job in Colorado in 2002. I tried Karen In California after moving, but it just didn"t seem like me so I changed it to lớn Karen FROM Colorado which will always be home to me no matter where my address is at the time. I was born there và will always love that bright & beautiful state. Especially my beloved Rocky Mountains where I spent so much of my time while living there all of my life. If you find yourself using one of my recipes as your dinner tonight, please feel free to change it lớn suit your own tastes. I will not mind in the least. It is what I would do if the recipe were posted by you. Your ideas might be much better then mine và just might make the recipe even better then I thought it was when I posted it. Please vì chưng mention the changes & results in your đánh giá even if the change didn"t work out like you thought it might. I truly bởi welcome the feedback and promise not khổng lồ jump all over you if you make this your practice. All I ask is that you not re-submit my recipe as yours with those changes unless they are major changes. Mind if I ask for an inspired by recipe whatever by Karen From Colorado if you vì find yourself changing a recipe so much that it becomes a different dish? I have no secrets, so if there is anything else you wish lớn know about me, then never feel afraid lớn ask me. I will let you know if your question is too personal. Most likely the only thing I will not give out to most people is my address, phone number and my last name. My thoughts on controversial threads as a diễn đàn host: Often (very often), I would wish khổng lồ post my thoughts và disgust about certain topics just as many others vày in these forums. I, too, have an opinion most times and would love khổng lồ blast certain people with them despite the fact that my opinion is just one more in a vast sea of opinions. However; I have learned long ago that my opinion really is just one more opinion & no one really gives a &%$
what I think about certain topics, so why put myself out there for others lớn ridicule me for them. There is ALWAYS someone who will. There will ALWAYS be someone that will move heaven & earth lớn make you see things their way. I am perfectly happy with seeing things my way and it really doesn"t matter lớn me if others don"t view things the way I do. Opinions are not facts. They are opinions only & I don"t consider them to lớn be a learning tool. They should not be used as one. If anyone wishes to lớn teach me something, then I hope they will vì chưng so with good, solid facts. Not with an opinion. As a forum host, I personally, feel a duty to set an example. I will not be baited into arguments on the forums. I consider it smarter then getting down and rolling in the mud with someone who just likes the excitement of controversial threads in order to lớn entertain others. I will not respond to posts directed towards me with the intentions of dragging me down with them to lớn the bowels of hate và discontent. People that wish to vị so can take their best shot at me, but I will not be engaged. In my opinion (told you I had one), that makes me smarter. I will not be the one signing the TOS again. My thoughts on recipe reviews: Please be honest in your reviews. Even a low, but well written, well thought out đánh giá can be helpful khổng lồ other cooks. I have experienced that made a recipe with 50 5 star reviews and hated it thing và wondered why everyone thought it was so delicious. I always think twice about reviewing recipes lượt thích that, but I make myself vì it because it is what I want others to do. I hate the idea of bringing someones đánh giá down even a little bit with my less then loved it review, but if we don"t, the đánh giá system is useless. I don"t watch my statistics so much, but I know others do. I still love getting đánh giá on my recipes. Some make me laugh, some make me sigh và some make my day, but I never let one ruin my day because as nice as it is to read someone"s thoughts on one of my recipes (especially one I created myself), it is just not THAT important in the grand scheme of things. The only đánh giá that really tick me off are retaliatory reviews. Someone"s feelings got hurt so they decide khổng lồ hit back. That is just childish và stupid. I have never had one, but I have read some left for other people. This kind of behavior in grown adults is disgusting. I also dislike reviews that say something lượt thích this recipe is not right because it is not made like my mom used khổng lồ make it. So what! There are hundreds of recipes for spaghetti sauce posted here on Recipezaar. Each và every one of them is sauce recipe for spaghetti. They each have a phối of ingredients & instructions for preparing them. That makes them all recipes, with nothing not right about them. I find review that say the recipe sounds good or something like that useless. I know that no one is required lớn make a recipe in order to nhận xét it, và I would hate for anyone lớn lie about making it only so they can leave a comment, but honestly....what good is that kind of statement going to vày anyone? I will mark that reviews as unhelpful và hopefully help send it to lớn the over of a long line of helpful reviews. Reviews that say something along the lines of sorry, but this was just a big mess. We ended up feeding this dinner to lớn the disposal. Is also useless. Why didn"t it work for you? Was one flavor over powering the rest of the dish? Was it too dry? Too watery? Too bland? vị you have any suggestions for other people that might want khổng lồ try this recipe? Was the fact that you tossed it into the disposal really necessary lớn your review? This kind of đánh giá is also acceptable on, but nothing in that đánh giá is helpful to anyone at all. It will also get an unhelpful from me, helping to send it lớn the back of the menu of helpful reviews. Any reviews that leaves only stars, whether they be 5 stars or 1 star is useless to me. Why did you love it or hate it? Those will get an unhelpful vote. Any 5 star reviews that doesn"t express why this recipe was so great will also get an unhelpful vote. My DH came back for thirds! doesn"t tell me anything more then he must have been really hungry that night. Was the recipe easy lớn prepare? Was it well written? Did all the flavors meld together perfectly? Did you have to substitute any ingredients for taste, diet, or because you can"t get an ingredient? Did your changes work? Did you make it just as it was written? Tell us why it was so great. As recipes posters, please never feel the need to thank me for reviewing one of your recipes. My reviews is in thanks to lớn you for sharing your recipe. You gave me the chance to try something new & for that, that I am grateful. Thank you for posting it so that I may experience something new whether in cooking it or in tasting it. You did me the favor by posting the recipe so that I could make it. I have prepared & enjoyed that I would never have tried before if people lượt thích you had not shared your recipe. You deserve the thanks. Not me for eating it. If I gave you a cup of coffee, you would most likely say thank you. If I said thank you for the thank you, it kind of throws off the whole exchange. I appreciate your for taking the time to view & read my profile. Your taking that time shows an interest in my ideas and in me as a person and I take that as the greatest compliment possible on ****************************************************** I didn"t have potatoes, so I substituted rice. I didn"t have paprika, so I used another spice. I didn"t have tomato sauce, I used tomato paste; A whole can, not a half can - I don"t believe in waste. A friend gave me the recipe; she said you couldn"t beat it. There must be something wrong with her, I couldn"t even eat it!
