Notes for the Week:
1. Spring roll is much harder than it seems. Spring stir fry is a very sorry recipe - does not really have an authentic asian flavor.
2. Bad planning for the week because all the herbs from Monday were left over with not much use elsewhere. Although the fennel was put to good use this week between the spring stir fry and the salad.
3. Spring salad needs really good juice of orange otherwise it gets a bit sugary.
