Pork Wontons


I made wontons last weekend. Pork wontons.

I put little spoonfuls of delicious, pungent, gingery filling into the squares and folded them the closest I could to the way people fold them in restaurants.

Edie came in from the outside, dirty, barefooted and hair falling in her eyes. I pulled her up onto the counter so she could see me working the dough on the wooden board, carefully covering the little parcels of meat.

She looked at my wontons, my lovely handi-work, things made of love from my own hands and said, "I can't eat those. They look like vaginas...And we don't eat vaginas."


Not. Saying. Another. Word.

You laugh now, ladies, but wait until the next time you eat wontons...and think of vaginas.

The whole wonton eating experience - changed.

cliffmama said...

LOL - that's hysterical. I wonder if there are any statistics that more men eat wontons than women?
By the way, the picture of her in this blog is adorable - she's got such an angel face.

I wonder about the day that will come when she puts two and two together, maybe remembering the pork wonton incident and realize what she really said. And if that's the case, I hope she shares that laugh with you.

She is so stinkin' cute......

I guess that means your know she's straight if she isn't willing to go there.

The Yummy Mummy said...

Just found your blog and think it's terrific. I just love cooking, so therapeutic...not that I find much time with a two yr old. You may like my latest blog post...The Road to Bliss via Lemon Cupcake Road. It is a recipe Mummies and bambinos will enjoy cooking and certainly eating. There is nothing like a great baking sesh! I look forward to more recipes!
