Boxing day. Time honored tradition of after Christmas shopping. Major bargain hunting and all the crowds that come with that.
But you know, there are stores that are virtually empty....COSTCO comes to mind. On Boxing day, this place looks deserted to any other regular business day.
T&T, our Asian supermarket would be another example of a store less frequented on Boxing day.
That's where we went today, if for nothing else than to cruise the aisles to find cool, gluten free ingredients and foods.
Victoria discovered these Vietnamese Chicken Rolls, made right here in Alberta. Gluten Free, No MSG, no food coloring, no sugar, 1,5kg for 12.00. BARGAIN. There are about 45 rolls in that bag.
When you open the bag the first thing you see is flour coating, but it's rice flour. You can prepare these snacks two ways, pan fried until golden brown, or just like me, deep fry the heck out of them straight from the freezer.
.After all, it's still Christmas season and all deep fried food tastes better anyway....Nutrionists can talk to me in January again.
Serve the Spring Rolls with a couple of sauces, for example a spicy Chili sauce and a Plum Sauce. I made a dozen of them, which is about 4 restaurant appetizers. They were gone in a minute or less. Hot, fat and tasty!
Happy Boxing Day!
