Spicy Edamame and Inside Out Egg Rolls

Sister and I just had an impromptu dinner last night. We made two great recipes but we did not take a single photo. Sorry about that! But the recipes are definitely worth sharing. We made Spicy Edamame from Cuisine at Home's December 2013 issue and Inside Out Egg Rolls. 

The Edamame were so good! Spicy! But so so good! We did not chill them, we ate them warm. We both loved the dressing. Sister thought it would be great on green beans too. The sesame oil is wonderful. I love the spicy, tangy soy thing too. Dear sister and I really enjoyed them despite the burning lips we had when they were gone. Still worth it!

The Inside Out Egg Rolls is a recipe from the WW Recipe Review board. I have been making it for a while now. I have adjusted it to my taste adding a little sausage. It really does taste like an egg roll without the fried skin. This time sister found a bag of Chinese noodles to use as a garnish. It was delicious!

The best thing about the whole meal is that it took maybe 15 minutes. Both dishes take no time at all to prepare. I really need to try to keep these ingredients around for when you just need a meal in a hurry. I hope you try one or both soon. I will get photos next time. I promise!
