After work on Friday I walked to Whole Foods to get all the supplies for my Wrappy Hour
I used a coupon to get a free roll of won ton wrappers and used the $25 gift card too!
Look at all my groceries!!
Time to get to work peeling and chopping my Bosc pears for a new Food and Wine Recipe: Pear-Cranberry Hand Pies
The mix: fresh cranberries, pears, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt!
To press my hand pies, I used the new Dough Press Set that Nasoya generously gifted to me.
Place the thawed and rolled out puff pastry on to the dough press…
…and fill with goodness!
All pressed and ready to chill in the fridge for a while.
While the pies chilled out, I made vanilla pudding for another dessert. Note: Do NOT use almond milk to make instant pudding. My pudding never set! You should use regular milk or add a thickening agent!
Freshly washed, organic berries.
Won ton cups!
After baking for a couple minutes, they got a really nice brown color.
Time to make dip! This is another Food and Wine recipe: Ginger-Miso Sweet Pea Spread
Frozen peas, miso paste, scallions, jalapeno, and ginger!
First, I sautéed the scallions, jalapeno, and ginger in a little veggie oil.
I added the defrosted peas in last to warm them up.
Everything in the blender, with the miso and some water!
Green and gorgeous!
Time to wrap the asparagus:
I coated the egg roll wrappers in olive oil and fresh parmesan!
I knew I wanted to have a meat options for the girls since I’m the only vegetarian. I wanted easy and delicious so I picked up these organic sausages that were already cooked. All I had to do was slice and brown!
Lovely dipping sauces, compliments of Nasoya!
Before my lovely guests arrived, I folded the Wrappy Hour aprons and tucked some coupons inside
The spread: Brie and cheese cubes, hummus, olives, dipping sauces, veggie tray (carrots, cucumbers, red and green bell peppers) with miso pea dip, sesame rice crackers, fresh bread, asparagus and parmesan rollups, chicken sausage skewers, vino, and “Last Minute Punch.” The punch was a mix of Disaronno Amaretto, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice – tasted just like fruit punch!
Cheers – Take One!
Cheers – Take Two!
Dessert Tray: Hand Pies, Mocha Walnut Brownies, and Vanilla Pudding Fruit Cups!
