Star Wars Party for Grown-Ups!

I can't believe how long it's been since I've updated!

Well, here we are, almost a year later, and I am about to blog a post I am more excited about than ever!

My boyfriend turned 25 on 9/6. I have been planning a surprise party for him since June.

It was really amazing. He was totally shocked, and I had the most wonderful time planning... including the menu:

The drink recipes were:

Tatooine Sunrise: Double tequila sunrise
Blue Milk: Cream and Blue Raspberry Vodka
Darth Mault Liquor
Qui-Gon Gin and Tonics

So, to blog a recipe, I made "It's a Wrap!" Admiral Ackbar's Egg Rolls with "Thai" Fighter sauce.

What you'll need:

1lb Ground Pork
1Package Shredded Cabbage (I use a Cole slaw mix)
Soy Sauce
Rice Vinegar
Ground Ginger
Sesame Oil
Wanton Wrappers

Heat oil in Wok, or deep pan. When hot, add Pork and brown and add Ginger.

When Pork is cooked thoroughly, add Cabbage package and cook down.

While cabbage is cooking down, add Soy Sauce and Rice Vinegar to taste, and continue to cook until cabbage is tender.

 When cabbage mixture is ready, remove from heat and let cool. Lay out Wanton Wraps and place a spoonful of mixture in the middle of the wrap, as it's oriented in a diamond shape.

Fold in corners til they touch. 

Fold bottom so the Wanton Wrap creates an envelope shape.

Wet the lip of the "envelope", and roll til the egg roll is complete.

Deep fry in a shallow bath of hot oil, and serve when cooled. To stick with the Star Wars theme, I served with a Thai Chili sauce, which was my "Thai" Fighter sauce.
