Since You Asked…

There is still time to go and enter for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Target along with some goodies here. You have until Sunday to enter! Many asked for my Fried Cream Cheese Wonton recipe and so here it is:

I combined:
1 package of cream cheese, softened
1 egg, beaten
1/2 to 1 tsp. onion powder (you can use chopped green onion if you family doesn’t hate “crunch
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 TBSP sugar
I then put a small amount of the cheese mixture in the center of the wonton wrapper. Wet the edges of the wrapper with a little bit of water. I folded them into triangles, and crimped up the two corners (like origami). Fry in oil until golden brown and drain on paper towels. Yum, yum, yummy.
There is a lot going on around here this week. I am crazy busy.
  • I am having a baby shower this Sunday! Funsize is 33 weeks today and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little uneasy about this time. Collin was born at 33 wks 4 days and the day before his shower was to happen. What happened was nothing they could have seen coming and there is no reason to believe it could happen again, but I am a bit on pins and needles. I just want to get through the next few weeks and celebrate with joy the arrival of my grandson. I pray daily and it seems to help keep me on an even keel for now.
  • My Medi-Cal was reinstated yesterday, so I am on the search for a surgeon. I want nothing more than to get better and find a job!!!!
  • I am working on a gift for the shower. And it’s something I have never tried before. I might be a little intimidated. But I have some online friends who are experts, so I have help if I need it.
  • I am having another giveaway next week.
  • It’s MARCH! How did that happen. St. Patrick’s Day is my 2nd favorite holiday. If you celebrate, you should head on over to ApronFrenzy and grab a Paddy’s Day apron (they are on SALE, $6 off) and they are just so much fun.
  • I want/need to write a hard-to-write post (I know, again?). It has to do with close knit communities, the tarnishing of a place where my kids/grandkids grew up, being part of a search team and the loss of a beautiful 17 year old young lady that should not have happened.
  • Did I mention there is a baby shower? I need to get on decorations and food. Gotta run!

  2. It seems only natural to be nervous about these next few weeks in the pregnancy. I’ll be keeping all of you in my prayers. Thank you for the recipe! I cannot wait to try it!

  3. You really have had a hard week. *HUGS* I just realized this morning that Funsize is 33 weeks. That’s got to be so hard on all of you. So glad your MediCal got reinstated! Hope you can get fixed up soon!

    The universe is with you. Funsize will progress to 34,35,36 weeks etc. The past does not predict the future, remember that.
    Now I need to go make some wontons, sounds like a great recipe!

  5. wow I was wondering , the other day, when Funsize was due.
    I agree it is normal to be nervous about these last few weeks in subsequent pregnancy after losing a much loved baby like Collin, so unexpectedly.
    I was worried all through my last trimester with my little guys after losing my angel Charlotte.
    I will be praying that in due time your gorgeous new grandson will be here safe & sound.
    Happy heaps of fun at the babyshower , and eat way too much of course .

  7. The wantons sound delicious. I am usually a little afraid of frying but I may give it a try :). Good luck with the shower and the gift. I hope everything with the pregnancy proceeds beautifully.
