A NON wonton wonton Soup!? What can I say, summer is near and a girl has got to do what it takes to be swimsuit ready and if that means I have to skip the wonton for a few months, so be it 😉 Actually, I find that the wonton wrapper takes away from the flavor of that little pork pillow inside. Why spend so much time adding Fantastic flavor to it if your going to cover it up? Once again this soup has sooo much Nutrition in it your body will be PLEASED! 🙂

Oh No! The song Everytime You Go Away by Paul Young just came on, and trust me, if someone you love is away from you DON”T listen to this song LOL. I am having the last glass of my Perrier Jouet Grand Brut wishing there was more. Hey, it makes me sing a little.

So if you are interested in that summertime body or just to feel extraordinary I will tell you

What You Will Need:

1 Pound Ground Pork

1 Bunch of Green Onions, minced

4 Cloves of Garlic, Minced
