Pea and Carrot Potstickers

From BigSister and MiddleSister

What a timely ingredient pair for this month’s Ingredient Improv Challenge organized by Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.  We two sisters are spending spring break together with MiddleSister’s two little girls.  We are like peas and carrots!  As we hear screaming from the bathroom, while we merrily work in the kitchen, we are reminded this wasn’t always the case.  These two peas and carrots used to be more like oil and water.  A phase we happily grew out of in our later years. We pretend that we are very different as grown ups, but we know that isn’t true.  While we each maintain the personality traits that drove each other CRAZY as youngsters, we have learned to accept them.  The good stuff is a lot more alike than we’ll ever admit.  We did pretty good for two different girls that shared a room for most of our growing years though.  One of us was neat and organized the other one of us was a pack rat.  We aren’t telling who.  Even though we fought against each other, it was the foolish other child that messed with one of us.  We could scream and yell at each other all we wanted, but Lord help you if you did!

So, when faced with a challenge from the world, we did what we always do when push comes to shove.  We put our heads together and came up with this recipe.  We think our Mom will be proud.

    What lovely potstickers! Those would be devoured instantly by the guys at my house, I’m pretty sure.

    Great post! Love your backstory. And very much appreciate, too, this ingenious invention from the sisters. Gyoza – potstickers – bring back happy memories of my sister and I cooking (the store bought kind) in Tokyo when our parents went out to a fancy party. Thank you!

    Without any professional oversight or quality control from me, I think this is an excellent recipe. (Although I did teach them how to use the wonton wrappers at a cooking class a few weeks ago.)

    It gives me hope that I have instilled some degree of common sense in all my children. That is to say that peace and harmony are much more productive that the alternative. I knew it would be ok. When “push comes to shove” the Tumbleweed Contessa gang all come together. I love it when it works that way!

    Liking the new look on this page. This has been a Big Sister masterpiece all on her own. I have a creative entrepreneur, a legal advisor and an accountant on my team. Who would have thought? Hank would be proud!

    Oh, that looks delectable! I would never have realized that it needs cream cheese to hold the filling together.

  7. Lesa @ Edesia's Notebook

    Oh yum! These potstickers sound and look amazing! I bet they are super tasty. What a great recipe for this month’s Improv Challenge!

    Your filling, with the cream cheese and horseradish, along with the vegetables sounds amazing.
