We spent much of the day in the kitchen, cooking up some goodies for our New Year’s Eve spread. The Fried Wontons came out exceptionally delicious. One batch was more of a Rangoon – it had a chive and cream cheese filling. The other batch had a delicious Asian slaw with some shrimp and bacon bits in it. We also had BBQ Honey Chipotle Wings, Stewed Tomatoes, Shrimp Cocktail, Pasta Salad, and Stuffed Mushrooms. A new secret ingredient was added to the Stuffed Mushrooms that made them outstanding as well – a pat of Goat Cheese in the mushrooms before the stuffing is added. Big yum!
We continued experimenting with the Wontons today while pup was over, and we tried a few egg rolls too. I must say, the wontons, egg rolls, and rangoons are all pretty darn delicious. We found a good Asian sauce that Mr. BFF used as a base, but adjusted to fit our tastes. Basically, I think he added honey to make it a bit sweeter… But oh yes, it was delicious! All so very good, but I have definitely had my fill of fried foods for the day… 😉
