Refreshing rolls that has shrimp in it, perfect for seafood lovers…

This week feels like a drag to me, I know the week just started and it’s not fair to murmur already. Can you believe that April has come to an end? Wasn’t that pretty fast??? April showers bring May flowers, so I am eagerly waiting to see my garden in full bloom in May. This evening, I had a stroll in my garden and saw a few of the plants have sprouted out of the soil. That put a huge smile on my face and yes I clicked a picture or two as well. Here is a picture, I need to remove the snails in my front yard they look cute but they actually feed on the plants and destroy them. I am not going to let that happen. This weekend is going to be a gardening weekend for me, can’t wait to get dirty in the yard.spring bloom

I’d been interviewed by Muslimah Media Watch a couple of days ago. The interviewer is one of my friends (we haven’t met each other yet, we got connected on FB through a mutual friend) and a very talented writer, she writes under the nick name Izzie for this wesbite. This morning she shared the published article with me, that definitely made my day. I loved the questions as it was quite different and I had to put some thoughts on it. Sharing the interview article with you all, read the full article here.

Talking about these shrimp rice paper rolls, they make a perfect appetizer for Summer. I wrapped the rice paper with shrimp and veggies. Any seafood lovers will fall for this and it’s quite refreshing too.
