Hankerin'



Oh dang. Occasionally I get a hankerin' for the won ton. When my sister married her Vietnamese hubby, I was introduced to a whole new world. Granted, our tastes differ more often than not, but when it comes to some deep fried heaven there is no denying the traffic-stopping goodness that should honestly bring countries closer together than ever before. Ya, it's that good.




My sister's niece, Chareena, was kind enough to come over to my house and TRY desperately to teach me the art of won ton making. She just whipped things up and made it look so perfectly easy.



We added a touch of this and a pinch of that ...



Before long I could feel my arteries sobbing, but I didn't care.
Ya, it was that good.




It took care of my hankerin' for awhile, but inevitably the cravings come back.
What does everybody else get a hankerin' for?

P.S. Thanks Chareena!

Hankerin' = Dyno-Bites cereal (weird...I know), pickles, chips and salsa...Not all together of course, but Tyler and I wonder what I will crave when I am pregnant, since I seem to have that down now.

Hi Karen! Hooray! I made it into your blog. I've been waiting six months for this. Hahaha. I'm so glad Julie told you I've been gripin' that, as a devoted reader, I have yet to be included in your blog.

Speaking of, I've got a hankerin' for some wontons? Shall we get together soon?

Karen said...

Indeed we shall! I am working full-time now so I can't really take "a wonton day" but we'll figure something out!
