Adequate words cannot describe the feelings of loss when a family member passes away. It doesn’t matter their age.  Our hearts and emotions struggle to deal with loss.  As I grow older my thoughts on mortality seem to linger longer then those days of feeling carefree and invincible.

But I am going to tackle it the way I have been approaching my taste buds and finding new ways to eat foods with less carbs.  Which takes me to the deconstruction of an egg roll.I always try to find the good that comes from a loss.  With the recent passing of my aunt (age 92), all of us girl cousins decided that we are starting a new tradition of a girl cousins weekend getaway.  It’s planned for May and I can’t wait.

Sometimes we get bogged down by the tried and true.  What I refer to as the comfort zone. This weekend getaway is going to be monumental and fun too.  We will trek up north to visit one of the girl cousins who is wheel chair bound struck by MS.  I am nervous because I always feel like I don’t know what to say.

But I am going to tackle it the way I have been approaching my taste buds and finding new ways to eat foods with less carbs.  Which takes me to the deconstruction of an egg roll.Chinese New Year is on February 19.  It’s the year of the goat.  This year the lucky direction is north.  Imagine that!

I am going to tackle difficult situations the way I have been approaching my taste buds. Discovering new ways to eat foods with less carbs.  Which takes me to the deconstruction of an egg roll.I will be honest too.  I am not an egg roll kind of girl, but I loved it deconstructed.  So even if you think you don’t like something it’s worth the try.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. When my dad died unexpectedly, it was the happy memories I had of him that kept me going. It sounds like you have lovely memories of your aunt. I love this recipe. I’m off to pin it to my Must Try recipes board on Pinterest.
