Tonight's Dinner: January 31, 2013

Tonight's dinner was super late.  It is a good thing that we had a really big lunch to tide us over. We were trying to get the apartment cleaned up a little bit and I was marinating the meats for the Bridal shower.  I also did a short workout using the Nike Training App that Christopher suggested.  I did an intermediate level workout based on the guidelines they give for how often you work out.  The workout was supposed to be 30 minutes.  It was so hard that I only did 18 minutes of it.  It goes to show that just running isn't enough.

Nick helped me chop up shitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, and garlic for the wonton.  Usually, I use ground pork instead of chicken, but I had wanted to try to keep it light and healthy.  I prefer pork and will be going to use it from now on.  The chicken was full of flavor, but was rather dry.  Even with the wontons being small, I could tell that it was dry. Nick suggested using a little bit of oil mixed in with the meat to give it some juiciness, but I'm just going to go back to ground pork.

Look how nicely Nick minced everything.  Whenever I
mince it is a rough chop.
