Thanks to Elizabeth's suggestion, I have lunch today. Spring rolls! They were extremely easy to make. They aren't anywhere near as good as "real" spring rolls from Kim Son or Dalat, but if I study up on what exactly to put in them (instead of just picking veggies I thought of off the top of my head in the produce section), I may be able to come close. The first batch I made lacked cilantro just because I forgot about how essential it is. I bought some, and today I shall have cilantro-y spring rolls. I also didn't make my own peanut sauce, as Alicia suggested, but I think I will because I don't like the peanut sauce I bought.
The problem now is that I just started craving a hamburger ...
