Thai Peanut Spring Rolls with Marinated Tofu

I am ready for spring.  My hoya plant recently came into bloom and I had never known that houseplants could bloom like this.  I was in awe and it sparked my interest in houseplants.  I went out and bought some lovely plants to sprinkle around the house, and a way to celebrate the coming of spring

This recipe is another was to celebrate spring.  It's full of fresh, crunchy vegetables, aromatic herbs and a savory, delicious peanut sauce that brings it all together. Enjoy!
