Shrimp Spring Rolls

Coconut Rice Pudding topped with mango ice cream (left) and toasted coconut (right).  My two daughters had different requests today.  :)  And, yes...the ice cream does melt by lunchtime.  It acts more like a creamy sauce.  We discovered this, because this dish is heavenly served warm with ice cream -- which quickly melts.  We love it topped with coconut ice cream, too!

Tea Eggs are a common endurance snack in China, not unlike trail mix here in the United States.  They are rather stunning in appearance and have a unique, subtle flavor.
