Wonton Wrapper Words & An Invitation

How fun can you make mealtimes?  I happen to think they can be crazy fun, and you don’t have to spend a lot of time twisting your kids tongues around food they won’t eat, or hours of prep putting together complicated recipes.  Sometimes the simplest foods and the best, and that is most certianly the case with these little Wonton Wrapper Words (recipe below) our family likes to make as an accompaniment to chicken soup.  Sometimes good food just talks to you, doesn’t it? 

I’m excited to share a few of my ideas about feeding your family in fun, delightsome ways while still Placating Picky Eaters during a cool online forum being held tomorrow at The Motherhood.

Here’s what you need to know to join in the fun:

Wonton Wrapper Writers

Ingredients:

1 package egg roll or wonton wrappers
1 cup vegetable oil

Directions:

Use a thin, nontoxic marker to draw the outline of your favorite words. Carefully cut the words out with a small, sharp pair of kitchen scissors Make sure each of the letters are connected. Alternately, you can invite your kiddos to cut the wrappers into fun shapes with cookie cutters.

In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Fry the wonton wrappers on both sides in the hot oil, then transfer to a paper plate lined with a paper towel until cool. Dip in your favorite salsas, serve alongside soups and stews, and enjoy!

    What a cute idea. I must give it a go! Maybe my husband might like the words “sexy” in his soup next time! :-)

    I wonder if we could bake these…I don’t think the deep frying would be very healthy.
