There are things I will never learn. One of them is about superglue. And how not to superglue dirt all over my hands.
But, maybe I will learn how to get it off.
And maybe, I think just maybe, I might learn how to make good wontons.
Wonton week started last Tuesday when Quel made a really good garlicky filling and her friend Kat came over and folded hundreds of the little tackers. They were deep fried up into tasty goodness served with Quel's delicious sambal. Yay for moving in with good cooks.
Then Friday to help Shannon celebrate not handing in her thesis we made wonton soup. I made an ok filling - fresh shitakes and water chestnuts really helped. Also I blanched some garlic shoots and included them. Yay for garlic shoots. Shannon made great soup and we were all happy.
I don't know why I decided I needed to make wontons again last night. I was tired out from supergluing my fingers all day but somehow I couldn't think what else to make. Weird I know. They weren't the best, I think the filling was a little bland and goopy. But Tal did some great little pyramid shapes, more Lebanese pie than dumpling, but cute. Her origami habit is having some weird influences.
The thing is, now I've realised that it's not a totally arduous process I may just have to make wontons over and over until they are perfect. Any advice folks?
