Pork & Scallion Wontons

My kid devours dumplings, wontons and pot stickers. They’re all a perfect vehicle for soy sauce….which is one of his favorite things. Instead of going out to a Chinese restaurant to satisfy our cravings, I made these Pork Scallion Wontons at home.

Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:Happy Monday! Writing this Sunday night. Listening to Led Zeppelin and drinking iced tea. It feels too good to close my eyes. That’s how tired I am. We had a full weekend with family and it was awesome!

We were in the city with family for Fleet Week and we spent the whole time eating and drinking. This is why I am not on the Whole30 plan right now.  Is anyone on it? Maybe I’ll start soon…

This week is a catchup and get organized week. There are some trouble dumping zones around my house right now that I have to clean up. The pantry is looking a little rough and I need to do some straightening.
