When our children were younger, my sister Tammy and I would constantly telephone each other, asking What are you cooking for dinner tonight.
Amy at Park City Girl has taken this one step further and is sponsoring a family dinner swap. So for some great ideas for dinner, check out her blog. Here is my entry. For the cost of 3 take out egg rolls you can make a dozen home made egg rolls. Add a bowl of rice, a side of veggies, meatballs in sweet and sour sauce or chicken nuggets, you have dinner in a hurryé
Easy home baked egg rolls

Empty coleslaw into a large microwave-safe bowl, cover, and microwave 3-6 minutes. Drain coleslaw. Drain the canned mushrooms and finely chop. Add to the coleslaw along with soy sauce, garlic and ground ginger. Mix thoroughly. Place 2 tablespoons of mix on the middle of each egg roll wrapper. Roll tightly. Spritz each side of egg roll with olive oil or cooking spray.
