This is not going to be a long, drawn out affair. It's something the grandkids and I just finished and we wanted to share.
They adore wontons; any size, any filling, any time! They have always been told that at Gma's house they can have anything they want for breakfast, within reason and I'm the deciding factor and if I have whatever they want in the house. In other words, I'm
not going to the store to get it. Their chances of having whatever they can dream up are pretty darn good that it's already here.
What did they want this morning? Oh, yeah. The wontons. I had a lot of input and a lot of help and this is what we did:
We took a container of Philly Strawberry cream cheese and a put a "dollop" (this, in measuring terms, means what you put onto the end of a teaspoon) into the center of a wonton, ran a wet finger around the inside edges, folded them and sealed them carefully
and deep fried them just until the wontons were a golden brown. Really. You don't have to cook cream cheese, right? We drained them on paper towels and sprinkled them with confectioner's sugar.
My husband, who is off work today, got into the act and wanted to know if I could make a few more! He said they were absolutely delicious. I thought they'd also make a nice little dessert after a Chinese takeout dinner! I have NOT had one. They are not
on my CSD!! I am sharing pictures of the result. I am crying... ;(
We also did our favorite snack time wontons. Makes an excellent Super Bowl Sunday snack. My son will attest to that! Here we go:
I let one block of Philly Cream Cheese soften to room temp. I then drain about 1/4 cup of pickled jalapeno peppers and then chop them very fine. You can add to the heat by adding more chopped pickled jalapeno peppers.I add the peppers to the creamcheese
mixing well and prepare them for deep frying as I did the dessert wontons. I try not to add insult to injury since they're being deep fried by using 1/3 less fat or fat free cream cheese. You truly cannot tell the difference. (I call that my guilt trip!)
Fry until golden, drain on paper towels and serve. You won't be able to get away with doing one batch!!
NOW: Since there are so many interested in the Cabbage Soup Diet, I thought I'd share a couple pix of the soup I made this past Monday and the soup that has here on day 4, allowed me to lose 4 pounds! Tra la la la la la!
