Wontons are something that I very much enjoy eating. I’m not the biggest fan of making them though. It’s not that it’s difficult, it’s just a process. You gotta make the filling, cook stuff for the filling, assemble them, fold them up, and then cook them. Basically not something that you, or at least I, can throw together for a quick week night meal.
I started the process on these fairly early in the day. Baby Z was really chill this morning, and actually let me put her down for her morning nap, so I got about 2 hours of hands free baby time in the kitchen this morning, and it was wonderful. I made another batch of croutons, made ketchup for the first time, and got the filling made for the wontons. Not a bad use of my time, if I do say so myself!
I had hoped to get the wontons all stuffed and ready to be tossed in the oven this afternoon, but Baby Z was not feeling as gracious as she was this morning, so that didn’t happen. Instead I recruited Husband to fill these puppies while I got Baby Z ready for bed (we’re working on implementing a bedtime routine right now).
I opted to bake these in an attempt to make them slightly healthier, and I have to say, I think next time I’d just fry them. They didn’t come out all the way crispy, and I just think fried would be better.
These were ok, not over the hill fantastic, but not bad. I dipped mine in ranch while Husband dipped his in some of the leftover fish sauce from the tacos last night. I think I might try a corn and black bean salsa with the chicken and maybe some chipotle ranch instead of the filling that I made tonight. No picture again tonight because I forgot! Sorry!
