Taste is a sense that allows us to associate food with feelings memories and even people For me lumpias divine taste comes with emotional ties and fond memories of a woman very dear to my heart named Nita As a child Nita lived in the Philippines and now that she lives in the US she enjoys making delicious lumpia for everyone she knows I met her when my parents joined a bowling league and made a team with Nita and her husband Nita always had a loud in-your-face personality that at first intimidated me and my shy spirit but as the years went by Nitas kind nature won me over and I accepted her as my second grandmother While most others remember the amazing dishes their grandmothers cook I realized early in life that my grandmother simply cannot cook unless it involves a can and a microwave Nita gave me the opportunity to experience a grandmothers bond of love and food most others cherishEven though lumpia is the single greatest thing I have ever tasted at first I did have some apprehension about tasting this so-called skinny wannabe egg roll With much preparation and nerve calming I bit through the paper-thin layers of the lumpias wrapper The crunch synched perfectly with the sound of crashing pins The way tiny bits of the shell shattered I could tell they were fried to perfection which is far superior to all other cooking methods Despite the crispy flaky outside the juiciest ground beef I had ever tasted made the filling Hidden inside the beef a slight crunch sparked my curiosity and I decided to investigate As a result I pulled out the orange specs that I figured must be the culprit of this new texture At last I found the finest shredded long thin piece of carrot I had ever saw which just so happened to be my worst enemy in the ongoing battle between myself and vegetables
