What does one do with too much pork mince? Apart from pork balls in Thai tom yum salted veggie soup, I made baked wonton, in ravioli style. Instead of wrapping the wonton in traditional Chinese dumpling style, I put the mince between two wonton skins, and sealed the edges with a fork. Then, I brushed both sides with olive oil, and popped them into the oven. Well, it wasn’t as crispy as the deep fried wonton that one gets at Chinese restaurants, but probably healthier? I think I somewhat overcooked them though, so the pork was a little dry and chewy. Still, we don’t waste food around here, if we can help it. It’s really not bad with fresh chopped tomato, mayonnaise and spring onion!
In the meantime, Miss Lucy is comfy in bed, wrapped up in her pink blankie, like a giant sweet fluffy wonton. She’s the sweetest doggy dumpling!
We’re preparing for the chill, time to wrap up and cuddle.
