Jonah-ing - Cooking Class

Jonah and her aunt Divine show and teach me how to make real Lumpia!

Mix all the ingredients and then put them together. Aunt Divine was very particular about the size of everything and would take little bits out as she mixed it up -  if it wasn't small enough.

Actually I did a lot of watching, but helped a little.

Aunt Divine makes a cooked starch paste that she glues the wrappers together.

Putting them together is key to the whole effort.

Snug with no air pockets and tightly wrapped.

Fold in the sides and roll up....

Glue with the starch paste,

Then repeat!

Aunt Divine can roll two almost three to my one.

It was lots of fun!

Fry in oil on med heat until golden - to make sure the meat is cooked through.

Jonah cooked some of them up while Divine and I kept rolling.

I love them hot or cold.

Now that is lunch!

Actually we had rice, sinigang soup, and lumpia - I did a test run for Sunday lunch when I have a family from the ward over tomorrow. I wanted to make sure I could make something they would like to eat.

I will update this post with the lumpia recipe after Aunt Divine writes it up for me. I know how it was made and I think I can do it again on my own.
