Heaven…I’m in Heaven…
Yes, that song is dancing through my head tonight. You see, last week my parents went through Fort Collins and, finding that there was a Whole Foods there, asked them to stop by. Why? Because they carry Feel Good Foods brand and I was hoping that they would carry their egg rolls.
While Feel Good Foods is carried here in Grand Junction, they only have the Vegetable Dumplings at the locations where this brand is carried. I’ve requested the egg rolls but…no luck yet. I’m pretty persistent so it won’t be long but I wanted to try them anyway.
I held off for a week. Between my schedule and wanting to pair the egg rolls with an actual meal, it took until tonight for me to try them.
They are much easier to make than the dumplings. You can do the oven version (bake for 20-24 minutes) or nuke them in the microwave which makes me cringe. Maybe they are ok that way but I feel like it’s disrespecting the egg roll. Yup, the egg roll has a hierarchy.
I decided to make the egg rolls with a chicken and veggie stir fry which is one of my co to foods. It’s easy and fast and healthy. Until I pair the egg rolls with them.
I had the chicken and vegetable as well as the vegetable egg rolls. I made the chicken and veggie ones. The egg rolls were AMAZING. Just like the real deal. They were light and flavorful and turned a beautiful brown. I savored every bite and wasn’t sad that I ate two of them. I still have 2 1/2 boxes in my freezer and, sorry fellow Grand Junction GF peeps, I won’t be sharing. I will be savoring them!
