Cooking lumpia (and two kinds too!)

This is not what I cooked. They did not come out looking like this!
So I made lumpiang shanghai and lumpiang togue today. It took me four hours total and resulted in ugly but apparently yummy lumpia.

I saw my lumpiang shanghai crumble in the frying pan and commented, "Ugh, they look like sh*t."

Mommy heard me and said, "Don't say that!"

But they did look like sh*t. Maybe small dog sh*t. Mommy said they tasted good though.

The lumpiang togue looked much better, but still terrible, as if they wanted to burst out of the wrapper. But the squash strips I added gave it a good flavor, and I was happy with the taste.

Now to practice my lumpia rolling skills. Then learn how to air-fry lumpia with as little oil as possible.
