Easy Won Ton Soup

When I was a kid going out for Chinese food with my family was always so special. The food wasn’t at all like the food we made at home. It always seemed so exotic to me. It was brought to the table in covered steel dishes on pedestals. You would take off the lids to see what treasure was in each one. Everything about it seemed magical to me. The first course would always be the Won Ton Soup. Brought in a big bowl, one of my parents would ladle some out to each of us. Such nice memories. I was defrosting my freezer recently and found some won ton wrappers. I decided to use some of them to make Won Ton Soup. I admit it will never be the same as the soup I ate in the Chinese restaurant years ago- but it will always make me think of those happy times with my family.
