Vegetarian Wonton Noodle Soup & Chinese Scallion Pancakes

Sundays are always special for us,sunday means late wake up, a filling brunch,late lunch and outings. Sometimes, i would love to make a elaborated lunch for us coz twice a month during weekends my H go for work, so obviously if he is at home definitely i'll make a royal feast. Have you noticed before a week, myself and Veena announced an interesting event to give a push to your sleeping blog, we named our event as Let's Brunch On Sundays. The main motto of this event is to blog on sundays coz  most of the bloggers couldnt able to feed their blog babies during weekdays coz of their busy schedules, so we both planned to create an event to cook and post a dish which goes under Sunday brunch,lunch or dinner.

Today is the first day of our event, am posting wonderful Cantonese dishes i dished out for an another event International Food Challenge , a monthly event started by two wonderful food bloggers. Seriously i love this International  food challenge, its a wonderful platform to learn various cuisine which is not that much familiar for many of us. Thanks to  Sara and Shobana, the brain childs of this event for inviting me to this food challenge. They challenged us with 4 different dishes,i cooked three out of four. I have already posted Spiral Moon Cake and here comes my vegetarian wonton noodle soup and Chinese scallion pancakes as their accompaniment i prepared for this challenge.
