    For those of you who participate in this event/host parties etc... What kind of food would you have/serve/eat?

    I love entertaining but this is a new one for me...

    You could make a Nacho dip sans jalapenos if you want.

    Cook ground beef with taco seasoning, add some chunks of stewed tomatoes, green peppers, onions, garlic etc. Put in the bottom of a glass dish. Cover with sour cream, then green onions, tomatoes and cheese. Cook in the oven. Trust me, it'll work!

    Meatballs are going to be made this year again, even though I don't have a clue what we're doing for superbowl... :lol:
    Made crab dip before aswell.

    Jenn, do you put any meat in your wontons? if so, what do you use? :o
    I made them sans meat, but its not the same without the pork or sausage, whatever it is

    Janet, send me an email at supper time (jenn.harrie@gmail.com) and remind me, and I will post my recipe. It's on my laptop. It's ground pork among other things. Also, I have the recipe for my s&s sauce.

    WONTONS:

    What you need:

    1 lb Ground pork
    1 pkg Frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
    1 Clove garlic, finely chopped
    1 green onion, thinly sliced
    1 to 2 tsp salt
    1 tsp Sherry (or any wine)
    1 tsp Sesame oil
    1 pkg Wonton wrappers
    Cold water for sealing


    What you do:

    FILLING: Mix the pork, spinach, garlic, scallion, salt, sherry and sesame oil thoroughly in a large mixing bowl.

    ASSEMBLY: Place 1 teaspoon of the filling in the center of each wonton wrapper. With a finger dipped in water, moisten 2 adjacent sides and fold over to make a triangle. With both hands hold the triangle by the 2 widest corners and push down so that the filled center folds up. Moisten one end and pinch the two ends firmly together.

    This makes about 50 wontons. Uncooked wontons can be wrapped and kept frozen for 1 to 2 weeks.

    Deep fry until golden brown.



    SWEET AND SOUR SAUCE:

    What you need:

    1 cup Brown Sugar
    ½ cup vinegar
    ¼ cup water
    ¼ cup pineapple juice
    1 15oz can of tomato sauce
    1 tbsp dry mustard
    ½ green pepper, diced
    ½ onion, chopped
    1 8oz tin pineapple chunks
    2 tsp cornstarch (mixed with water)


    What you do:

    Mix together sugar, vinegar, water, pineapple juice, tomato sauce and mustard in a medium saucepan. Add the vegetables and pineapple. Bring to a simmer and reduce 1/3. Adjust sugar, vinegar and tomato sauce amounts to taste. Add cornstarch mixture and continue simmering until slightly thickened.

    im just sayin... I am sure it is tasty but the ginger would totally compliment all of the flavors there and give it an added taste.

    Ginger is such a strong flavor it would overpower it, I think.

    The salty/sesame flavor in the meat is what makes the wontons good. And the sauce, you don't mess with S&S sauce. lol

    I guess you can look at it that way if you want but I 100% gaurente it that it wouldnt be too strong a flavor, because you would only use maybe a tablespoon of fresh grated ginger... remember you are cooking asian ginger is a very common in asian dishes and sauces.
