Old man winter seems to be in for the long haul.  Between extreme cold fronts and snow and ice storms I think it’s safe to say we can’t wait for spring to arrive.  Right now in Atlanta it’s actually pretty nice, for now at least, that will all change in a couple of weeks when our next cold front rolls through.

The one thing I do love about winter is that it’s soup season.  A few months back my husband brought home wonton soup (with meat in it of course).  So I thought to myself, I do have some veggie wontons from the Asian supermarket in the freezer, why not make a meatless one.  Luckily enough I had all of the ingredients in my fridge and cupboards.  It came out very tasty and I even had enough leftovers for lunch the next day—even better!
