Ahh the Memories

Every year for our birthday we got to choose what we wanted mom to make us...I almost always chose this...



Yep, yummers. Won Tons have become a family favorite in our house. I pretty much make sure I have a "birthday" every couple of months. As the years have gone on, I have adjusted it to fit what we had or what sounded good. We have also added Asian Spaghetti. This feast has become one of those recipes that I make by putting in a dash of that, a splash of this, a little more here...you get the point. So I am trying my best to give it to you in measurements. I am giving 2 different recipes for the won tons and then a recipe for the Asian spaghetti. ENJOY.

Beef Won Tons

1 lb ground hamburger, cooked
3-4 green onions sliced
1/4 cup grated carrot (not the thick cheese grater, the tiny grater)
2 Tbs sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 egg
won ton wrappers
oil, for frying

*instructions following pork recipe

Pork Won Tons

1 lb ground pork, cooked
3-4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup grated carrot
1 tsp ginger paste (or equivalent ground)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 egg
won ton wrappers
oil

Cook meat and drain. Stir in all other ingredients besides wrappers and oil. Place small spoonful of filling in center of wrapper. Fold burrito style. Seal final edge with water. Heat oil in deep sauce pan over med- med high heat.

Drop 3-4 won tons in oil at a time. Fry for about 20- 30 seconds, till golden. Remove and drain on napkin.

When all done, serve plain or with sweet and sour sauce...oh and a side of--

Asian Spaghetti

Spaghetti noodles, prepared per package OR Asian stir fry noodles, prepared per package
3-4 green onions, sliced
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 TBS sesame seeds
oil

The ingredients to this will vary depending on the amount of noodles you like. This is for about half a box of normal sized spaghetti or one package of noodles.

Cook noodles per package, set aside. Heat up oil, enough to cover bottom of a large sauce pan or a stir fry wok. Sprinkle in sesame seeds and cook until seeds start to turn golden, which will take several minutes. Once seeds are golden, dump in spaghetti/noodles, green onions and soy sauce. Stir until evenly coated. Add more soy sauce if needed.

Now eat up. This is a great dish for entertaining and quite the crowd pleaser.

Um, let me point out that I think cute Jack still calls them "Crescent Rolls". Either way, they're AWESOME and have become a favorite in our house since you made them for us!

I have never made these before, but they look great. I am definitely going to try these out. Thanks for posting these recipes, we have been enjoying trying new things. Do you have an Asian Rice recipe? I think that might go over better than noodles at my house.
By the way, I just realized that you live about half way between my sister (Amber) and me. She lives in Virginia now. I am going to visit her the week after Christmas. If you are going to be around maybe we can try to connect either on my way there or on my way home.
