Appetizer style dinner
After three hours of lab work, a heavy snack on returning from the lab and no inclination to cook something that would take forever to cook, I came up with two great appetizer style dinner ideas. I take no credit for the originality since both are very commonly known and widely eaten with some variation.
I made Wonton bites with Egg roll stuffing and veggie bruschetta.
If you know of better names for these dishes, I am all ears.
The wonton bites were a savory twist to HTP’s Baked wonton cookies and the brushetta was my Mum’s go to snack when we came hungry from school.
1 cup coleslaw mix
garlic and ginger
a dash of chili oil
I sprayed a mini muffin pan with cooking spray and placed the wonton is the muffins. Bake them for 7-8 minutes.
Stuff the mix in the shells after cooled down and enjoy!
This is a really simple idea.
Bread drizzled with EVOO. Toast in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 roma tomato chopped,seed removed
1/2 red onion chopped
1 tbsp cilantro chopped
Salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 F.
Q. What was your favorite after school snack as a kid or if you are a parent what do you like to give your kids after school?
My favorite snack was Maggie noodles, they are one of the most common snack kids enjoy. They are an Indian version of the Ramen noodles. So so good. Then these open faced veggie sandwiches and stuffed flat breads called Parathas.
Q. Any major plans for the weekend?
