Hello and Happy January!
I hope all of your New Year Festivities were enjoyable!
Here we are starting a New Year… 2022 has arrived! Are you ready?
I do want to thank you for stopping over to this little spot in the Blogging World. I’m so appreciative of this wonderful community of friends supporting each other. It’s a fun place to be! Here’s to a fabulous 2022!
Have You Taken Down Christmas?
I am still hanging on to a little bit of Christmas. I am hosting a Book Club meeting this week so I am keeping some of the Christmas Cheer around. We did travel during the Holidays and I guess I need to see it a bit more.
Book Club Choice
This past month we read The Lost Apothecary. A great book… a day of Mudlarking was the reason the author wrote this fictional story. It was a great read. I am looking forward to our discussion on this interesting book. Have you ever heard of Mudlarking? I never heard of it until this book but it’s quite popular. It’s a type of scavenging… that’s all I will say.
Do You Make New Year Resolutions?
I’m not one to make resolutions so you will not see any here but this is the month we try to get back to eating healthy again. With the Holidays we ate Fried Oysters, Shrimp and Grits, Fried Sauerkraut, and my very rich Black Eye Peas and delicious sweets as well. Here at Two Trails One Road we will be trying to make healthier choices. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Hopefully my Air Fryer will be used more often.
Egg Rolls Anyone?
We love them. Most Egg Rolls are deep fried. So to make them just a bit more healthy… I put them in the Air Fryer. They are easy and so very crunchy! My son showed me how to make these.
- Sauté a bag of Cole slaw mix. I sometimes add shredded chicken or leftover shredded pork tenderloin.
- Lay one egg roll wrap on a plate and add a few tablespoons of your sautéed cabbage mix.
- Roll like Step 4 and 5
- Brush tops with Vegetable Oil.
- Spray the basket of your Air Fryer. Place the egg rolls in your Air Fryer.
- Cook at 375 for about 6-8 minutes. It will depend on your Air Fryer for how long you cook them and how hot your air fryer should be. I have learned to play a little when making things in the Air Fryer.
Hope You give them a try. They are a perfect snack. And they really do come out crispy!
Lots of Rain and Chilly Temperatures
It’s Winter in the Desert. I only got two walks in this week. And no Desert Adventure because of a muddy Desert. I did see a few flowers while walking. They sure do enjoy the rain. I always look for these Paper Whites but not until February …so these were a surprise seeing them now in January.
My Project This Week
Sweet Man got me a Digital Picture Frame for Christmas. I had such a wonderful time choosing pictures for it. We have it setup in our kitchen and enjoy watching the pictures change. A perfect gift!
Thank you for your visits. I wish for you and yours a lovely week to come.
