Blame it on the holiday season, but I haven’t had much time to cook lately—endless Christmas parties and gift shopping have made my days completely occupied. However, I have to confess that I have been sort of procrastinating in kitchen chores, too. Well, I guess you just have to cut me some slack; after all, it’s that time of year again, so I am merely having fun outside of my kitchen.
That being said, I haven’t totally gone missing in action in terms of cooking. I rummaged through my fridge today and found some leftover wonton skins (remember those fried wontons I made a few weeks ago?) and whipped up these shrimp wontons with dipping sauces: ginger vinegar sauce. They were simply delicious.
