Sushi and Snow!

Last night for dinner we took a break from turkey leftovers (yes, we still  have some), going for a completely different taste with sushi and wontons. My sister rolled carrots, avocado, cucumber and sushi rice in sheets of Nori seaweed. These were topped with thin slices of pickled ginger and a dipping sauce of soy sauce, dry sherry, and scallions.

I mixed up fresh pork from New Roots Farm with scallions, ginger, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and sesame oil for the wontons. We folded a tablespoon of this mixture into each wonton wrap. These were cooked in three different ways: lightly fried, steamed, and boiled. Boiled was the most efficient and easiest, although the fried wontons had a nice flavor, as fried things do.

My niece was helping fold the wontons, until we noticed that it was snowing. Then she darted outside to the deck to make a six inch snowman......with the first snowfall of the year.
