I was hoping spring rolls would be an easy to whoop up kind of dinner before heading to the Celebrate The Web Event “Raising The Bar”.
There turned out to be a significant amount of prep work involved.
Softening the noodles, frying the tofu, cutting the veggies…
I was racing against the clock.
However, once all of the details were taken care of, finishing was easy breezy.
We used rice stick noodles, fried tofu, mango, cilantro, red onion, and cucumber as the stuffing. And at some point during my speedy roll construction, I completely forgot to add the lettuce! A little bit of a bummer, but they were still super tasty.
Ariel and I ate (standing) as we rushed to get ready while Matt cleaned the whirlwind of a kitchen that I left behind. Savior.
Then we were off!
We re-watched all thirteen web pilots, anxious to find out who would be Winning! that night. When they announced Relapse as the Audience Choice Winner, I looked next to me only to find a completely frozen Team Discovery Channel. It wasn’t but seconds later, the entire crew hopped on stage to humbly accept the award they so deserved.
Sharing this moment with Ariel couldn’t have made me an ounce happier!!!
And then we celebrated!
