Happy Friday! Since Monday is St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would do all things green for my 5 on Friday! Linking up with Christina, April, Darci, and Natasha!
Avocado Egg Rolls!
These little babies are oh, so tasty …and surprisingly, very easy! I doubled the batch and was glad I did. You’ll love these things!
What you need:
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
- 3 tablespoons of red onions, minced
- 2 tablespoons of cilantro, minced
- Egg roll wrappers
1. Mix together the first four ingredients.
2. Put 1/4-1/2 cup of the mixture in an egg roll wrapper and roll up.
3. Fry the egg rolls in peanut oil (make sure the oil is 350-375 degrees) for about 2 minutes on each side.
4. Let the egg rolls cool on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
To make the dipping sauce:
Mix together ½ cup of mayonnaise, ½ cup of sour cream, 1 tablespoon of dry ranch seasoning, 1 clove of minced garlic, 1 tablespoon of minced cilantro, and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve. To lighten the recipe, substitute some of the mayonnaise and sour cream with Greek yogurt.
Am I the only one SO ready for some spring and summer clothing? Seriously, I am dying – I need some prints and bold colors stat!
Here are some cute spring finds (all in green…), in hopes of some warmer weather. After all, spring is technically only a week away!
Cool Mint Oreos!
If you’re in need of an easy-peasy St. Patty’s dessert, then these fit the bill! All you need are mint Oreos, white chocolate chips, and St. Patty sprinkles.
First, melt the white chocolate chips and dip half of the Oreo in the chocolate. Place on wax paper and top with sprinkles… trust me, these things are yummy!
On Tuesday I shared an ombre cake recipe… it is actually quite easy and so fun to look at (and eat…)! You could totally mix and match the colors – on Pinterest I saw the cutest blue ombre smash-cake!
Green Apple, Kiwi and Kale Juice!
You may be in need of some fresh juice if you plan on eating copious amounts of corned-beef hash and drinking green beer this weekend (or Monday, if you're actually Irish).
This is another juicing recipe from Williams-Sonoma - I absolutely love kiwi, so this recipe was a no-brainer for me!
I changed the recipe around a bit and below is what I ended up with
- 3 Kiwifruit, peeled
- 1 Green apple
- 1 Heart of romaine lettuce
- 1 Cucumber
- 1 Stalk of celery- 1 Lemon
