Double Happiness Wonton Soup

Wonton Soup
Originally uploaded by Lisa Fagg
It was Saturday night. We were tired after a long, hard week at work and doubly tired from walking all over Cambridge earlier in the day. We were cranky. I wanted to make wonton soup for the first time. We were hungry. At first it was very quiet in our kitchen while we struggled with trying to wrap the filling in the wrappers - that was after the disagreement over how to interpret the instructive photos in the cook book. Then we fell into a rhythm and started talking again. Not long after that we were beaming at our accomplishment and fretting over whether they'd all stay together in the pot of boiling water. They did. Then we made the simple broth to go with them.

At the end of the meal, we were both stuffed full of wontons, chatting merrily away; our troubles all but forgotten. For this reason I'll call this dish 'Double Happiness Wonton Soup'!

P.S. - If you want to double your happiness, the recipe can be found here...
