Another Happy Pig Award

Yesterday Betty at Keeper of the Skies posted a recipe for Lumpia. I have never heard of Lumpia, much less made it. I decided to give it a try for our dinner last night.

My little family loved it. Leah helped me roll them. They are full of chopped vegetables. My kids did not even notice the veggies!!! You can probably put any kind of veggie you want in there. Buster won't eat onions so I didn't put those in and I didn't put the spouts in mine. I put green bell pepper and cabbage in along with the other ingredients Betty had listed. Go to Betty's blog. She has step-by-step pictures posted along with the recipe for Lumpia.

So Betty I'm awarding you this Happy Pig Award for your Lumpia Recipe.

I would also like to award the Happy Pig to TracyP for leading us all into temptation during Christmas. Her Christmas Cookie Exchange was lots of fun. I tried a couple of the recipes listed on there. We loved them and my neighbors did too.

Thanks Betty and TracyP.

I lke your verse of the day, about being tested by trials and temptations. It's easy to be virtuous (in any way - faithful, a good friend, tolerant, kind) when things are going well, it's when things get tough that you really start to learn something.

Oh look at that!! Here I'm all "Yum I LOVE lumpia!", and then you go and award ME too! Thanks Joy! Making pretzel kisses is not nearly as impressive as making lumpia--I'm SO impressed!!!
