what is for dinner - wonton soup

found some 薺菜 in the frozen section at one of the markets in chinatown. My grandmother use to make shanghai style wantons (large, thick skin) with this green and ground pork. According to her, this vegetable grows wild around the farms where she was from. Anyway, it adds a very unique fragrance to this simple dish. Of course, the frozen stuff I got is nowhere near what I remembered back home, but certainly good enough for dinner.
