Let's eat!

Hi. My name's Carol, and I love food. No, you don't understand. I love food. If I were on the Titanic, I'd be in the galley (kitchen) eating up the chocolate pudding and the roasted quail. I go to most events, activities and parties just for the food. The company and the conversation are secondary. Here, I'll try to document everything that goes into my mouth. Aren't we excited? Oh, hey, are you gonna eat that?

Chicken Lumpia

What always happens. Before...

...After. Where'd they go??

For little blue girl:


25-30 lumpia wrappers
2 tbsp. oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground chicken and a little ground shrimp
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded/grated
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. salt
2 cups Napa cabbage, shredded
2 cup bean sprouts (optional)
1/2 tsp. pepper
*3 cups oil for deep frying

Heat frying pan and add oil. Add garlic, onion, and ground chicken/ground shrimp, cooking until done. Add carrots and cabbage. Add remaining ingredients and cook until combined. Allow mixture to cool. Wrap in lumpia wrappers following instructions on package. Deep fry at 350 degrees until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with a bottle of sweet chili sauce for dipping, or make your own lumpia sauce (recipe from Cooks.com below).
