Vietnamese Steak Rolls

The last weeks of Summer always seem to be the worst. I am never {okay, just about never} in the mood to spend any time at all in the kitchen. My kitchen has a large window which gets all the sun in the afternoon, making it very uncomfortable to cook and bake.

These past two weeks, especially, have been very hot and most of our dinners were something light and cold like these Vietnamese steak rolls . They are filling enough to serve on it's own, or you can add a salad or two for dinner.

But if you want to serve this for lunch, it is perfect as is. {If served as dinner,any leftovers are great for the kids' lunch boxes the next day}

I shave the carrots and cucumber with my vegetable peeler.
