    I have made my own egg rolls all summer and they have been so good. They are something very different, fairly healthy b/c I saute or bake them, dont have cheese in them and I halve the amount of pork so there is only 1/2 pound of pork in 14 egg rolls. I use the sweet chili sauce on them and eat them for breakfast, as well. Delicious and very easy to make. Plus making one batch gives you 14 egg rolls!

    Truly, I am unable to try the eMeals but I would like to. My husband will not eat anything in marinades, soy sauce, w/mushrooms, no salmon and not much of any other fish, no to asparagus and “no” to a lot of other things. He wants something plain, as in steak and/or chicken with potato and canned green beans. Is there any hope for me with eMeals?
