Another Never Ending Card

My roommate, Hannah, had her half birthday the other day. I decided to make her something special. The first thing that came to mind was a never ending card. (Remember this one?)

Her favorite color is purple, so it was not hard to choose the color scheme.
These are the types of things you do (and can afford) in college. Having roommates does have its benefits, if not only to make cards for.

18.5 isn't that bad of an age to be. :)

Whenever we go to a Chinese or Japanese restaurant, at least someone in my family is going to order soup. You can get miso soup or clear soup at Japanese places and wonton or egg drop soup at a Chinese restaurant. My favorite are the wonton soup with the meat filled noodles and the clear soup with the pieces of yummy seaweed. Today I decided to blend the two into the ultimate Asian fusion soup. I even took the liberty of replacing the pork inside of traditional wontons with chicken since I'm not much of a pork fan. The results were amazing. Best crossover soup ever.

Chicken Wonton and Seaweed Soup
serves 5-6
4 sheets of nori (seaweed)
6 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 cup cooked shredded chicken
1 tbsp soy sauce
16 wonton wrappers

Mix 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, the chicken, and the garlic powder together. Place 1 tablespoon in the middle of each wonton wrapper. Wet the sides of the wrappers, pull up the corners to meet in the center, and press the sides together. Meanwhile, bring the chicken broth and 2 teaspoon of soy sauce to a boil. Cut the nori into long strips. Add the nori and wontons to the boiling broth. Cook for 5 minutes and then serve.
