With the last-minute exams and grading just before Thanksgiving, I peddled home with barely enough energy to tear open a cardboard box and microwave a frozen entrée. I selected a chicken-and-vegetable dumpling dinner last Tuesday, and during my first bite, a dangerous idea popped into my head…
I could make these myself!
And with that, I was doomed. I patiently ate our traditional Thanksgiving feast at my parents’ place but returned itching to go to the grocery store. At Safeway, I zeroed in on the wonton wrappers and hugged them to my chest, picturing all of the possible fillings and flavor combinations.
I started simple with a fresh vegetable filling, and we gobbled them up faster than last week’s turkey. With 50 more wonton wrappers left in the package, it’ll be a guessing game to see what I use them for next!
