Put the new fryer to the test tonight. My daughter in law is world's greatest spring roll roller. From time to time the family comes over and we fry up a good back stock of Vietnamese style spring roll for freezing and a quick meal later.

The new fryer did even better than expected. I loaded about 25 per load and the temp didn't even drop. 15 minutes later, we had 75 fried spring rolls.

For those that have never had Cha Gio, these are not your typical egg rolls. they are mostly meat (pork, shrimp, and crab meat) with mushrooms, garlic, onion etc. A real meal in a spring roll wrapper.

What a day, a great dove hunt this morning with junior and grandson, then the whole family over for dinner and this wonderful Asian treat.

Hell Buzz, everything I like is terribly bad for me according to somebody.

as to the Daughter in law, she was raised on theses things and rice. She has rolled more of these that Frank Zappa has rolled joints. She is a master IMO, but to her, it is just second nature.
