Thai Summer Rolls

My husband is in love with Thai summer rolls and I have to admit that the more I make them the easier they are, and I think this time I nailed, NAILED, the peanut dipping sauce! The first time we had Molly eat these with us she maybe took a bite. Tonight she ate two whole rolls (well one full one since I cut them in half) she isn't too on board with the dipping sauce which is a surprise since she is into a "dipping" phase. She was taking huge bites, and the texture of these rolls are a little chewy and awkward so she was so cute when she was biting down and tearing off a piece and on top of that she kept saying, "Yummy, yummy." This just reiterates the fact that you shouldn't just assume that a child won't eat something. Who would think a two year old would eat a summer roll full of nothing but veggies, tofu, and a fairly strong hint of cilantro? I would think most people would think she wouldn't eat it, but on only the second try she ate them up. You have to be able to just keep trying.

2 tsp soy sauce

2 tsp brown sugar

**Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl add a teaspoon of water at a time until the sauce is loosened to your own desired texture.
