Two days until the election and I'm keeping the news off. Don't want to hear polls or opinions or guesses. Don't want to hear what things #45 is doing to cheat or what his supporters are doing to keep Biden from speaking.
I need something to take my mind off of everything. This is what I started yesterday.
I love working puzzles and it's been a long time since I started a 1,000 piece puzzle. I'd forgotten how difficult it is to get the edge done (which I always do first). This one is going to take a long time to do and will definitely take my mind off of anything else going on in the world. It's a picture of Cinque Terre, where Char and I were with our daughters when we were in Italy in 2009..
Ned has decided he wants Mexican won ton for dinner on election night. Mexican won ton, a recipe Char and I found in an old Sunset Magazine back in the 1970s is the whole reason why we suggested making a cookbook for Tiny Tots and came up with "Trifles from Tiny Tots." We always made them for parties and everybody loved them and wanted the recipe. They take a long time to make, so that should kill an afternoon.
I know Laurelie is going to want the recipe, so here it is:
1 lb hamburger
Remove casing from sausage and crumble. Add to hamburger and brown meats. Add onion and chili and cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Let cool. Place one tsp of filling in the center of a won ton skin and fold, sealing with water.
Deep fry until golden brown. Serve hot with guacamole (These may be made ahead and frozen. When ready to serve, place on cookie sheet and heat at 250 for about 30 minutes.)
I haven't made these in many years and am kind of looking forward to making them again.
Heck, I'm looking forward to EATING them again. It's my
very favorite hors d'oeuvre, which I rarely make just because it takes so long
to make. If things go wrong in the election, at least we'll have Mexican
