I was in DC this past weekend for Katie’s wedding. It was a lovely, not totally humid, DC weekend. And I spent some time with the Bracken family. This time that met a feast of Filipino pancit and lumpia. Lumpia are like egg/spring rolls. And these were freshly fried for us (thank you Haydee!). And she made us the pancit noodle dish. I remember this from Anna’s birthday at UVA. Noodles for your birthday mean longevity (I think).
Needless to say, we ate the entire plate of lumpia and made quite a dent in the pancit. And washed it down with just 4 bottles of wine (hey, there were 6 of us).
