Shanghai Lumpia

I know I should be talking about my thanksgiving dinner but after preparing for two turkey dinners this weekend, I am so turkeyed-out, I hardly even want to say turkey anymore.

Today, I prepared Shanghai Lumpia for a cousin for a change. She hasn't had any turkey so far and she was expecting me to have one for lunch. Normally on Thanksgiving Day in the past, we always have one at home . Too bad. She had to make do with the left-overs but I made sure the Lumpia would compensate for whatever she was craving for.

Ingredients:

1 lb of ground pork
1 medium onion, finely chopped
5 tbsps of soy sauce
2 eggs
2 tbsp of corn starch
1/2 tsp of ground pepper

Mix the ingredients in a bowl. Wrap the mixture in lumpia wrappers. Deep fry. Serve with sweet and sour sauce. Relax and enjoy the company of cousin.

I know what you mean about turkey, Ting. It seems not so long ago when we had our turkey extravaganza for Thanksgiving too, now it's almost that time again. I'll have to think of something else to post for thanksgiving now :-)
Your lumpia just made me remember, my kids have been asking for some too!
