Wonton Noodles

 Wonton Noodles

It was early February... the weather was hot and humid.
It was one of those typical 'very' hot summer days in Perth. The summer days where I feel like doing nothing...

"what shall we have this weekend?" I popped my usual question to H.
I wasn't actually 'asking'... it was an indirect request for him to take over 'the stove' for the weekend...
"I dont know..." would be his respond every time...I don't know
...for some inspirations ~ we'd take out a stack of cookbooks off the shelf, and started to browse...going ~
"This looks good..."
"Oh! this looks yummy...."
or 
"Its been a while since we ate this..."

So that particular early February weekend, we had a craving for?....
wonton noodles.drooling


Though it was a lengthy and tedious preparation...in Chinese words ~ 'mah fan' or Malay word ~ 'renyah'...with chicken pieces require overnight preparation (marinate)... prepare, wrap and deep fried wontons... then on to preparing noodles.
But the end results was ... a plate (or 2...ooops) of delicious, satisfying meal.



Totally on different note... yeah I was told that I like to digress and go off topic altogether...hehehe... my blog , my saytongue

Sharing a piece of good news.... *drum roll*

I am at no 16 in Babble's Top 100 Food Mom Blogs of 2013! (... from no 68 last year)
