Pot Stickers for the 4th of July

Somehow this holiday weekend has turned into a 3 ring circus of sorts for me. Ever since the BF and I got together the one thing I have been looking forward to is fireworks on the 4 th of July. I should have known better….

Somehow I’m working Saturday til 3, meeting my parents somewhere to ride horses (>.> yeah, not sure bout that one either), rushing home to get to the BF’s parents to watch fireworks. Oh, did I mention now my parents are coming tot he BFs house with me? Sure why not (this would be when its important to know my rents haven’t met the BF’s mom yet – yeah, I’m not stressing out).

The fun continues into Sunday when I have to be at work for an event were having and leave quickly from there to get to my fathers for his 4th BBQ…. Aren’t we supposed to relax on holiday weekends?

To celebrate our nations independence, I made pot stickers (for those of you who don’t know me – that was sarcasm, you’ll see a lot of that in these parts).


If there are too many pot stickers for one meal – freeze the rest before cooking them and prepare as directed at another time. It’s a lot of work so we make them in batches and freeze the rest.

Lucky for me, there is an Asian market right behind my store. They have great wonton wrappers, some produce, a lot of things that I can’t read and every sauce you would ever need – not to mention its cheaper then normal grocery stores! Win!

    Man those look good. I get pot stickers from the prepared section of my grocery store for lunch quite often. Yeah, I think I can handle this recepie and make them myself now! Good luck with the rents meeting each other. Ours havent met yet either and I hope to keep it that way for as long as I can. Haha! Have a great weekend!

      Once you make your own you will never be able to go back to the store ones!!! They are easy, just time consuming. >.< But you can always tweak any recipe to your liking. Heck, Alton Brown has one that pretty much sounds like mini meatloaf's inside wonton wrappers. I don't blame you for keeping the rent introductions away for a long long time.
