Thursday: Freestyle Rice Paper Rolls


For a light yet tasty dinner that requires no oven, these rice paper rolls are great. Lay out a load of fillings and let everyone make their own rolls (instructions for how to roll are on the packs). You could use shredded BBQ chicken, grated carrot, batons of cucumber, cooked vermicelli noodles, avocado, coriander or mint, red capsicum – whatever you have to hand will work well.

Friday: Mexican Beef Tacos
