C-O-U-G-A-R-S and a recipe for Avocado Wontons

    I really do not understand why no one can spell cougar.
    I live on Cougar Lane and every time I have to call the cable company or the water company or an electrician I have to spell out C-O-U-G-A-R about ten times.
   Than I have to explain what a cougar is.
    It’s a mountain lion.
    You know that wild cat with the cute little tail?
    No, that is a bobcat.
    Way less likely to attack you in the wild than a hungry cougar.
    Puma, ocelot, jaguar, cougar;
    Now I know I grew up in the mountains but am I the only one who recognizes the members of the wild cat family?
    This whole conversation came about yesterday when Kirstin and I were leaving a friends home to go for a run.
    There have recently been several attacks on small pets by mountain lions in this area.
   Our friends may have been mocking our choices in recent years to date younger guys.
   As we walked out the door, Kirstin yelled behind us
   “Mountain lions don’t mess with cougars. We will be fine!”

   This recipe is a tasty snack after running away from cougars; the furry kind or the blond kind.

Avocado Wontons
1 avocado, ripe, cut into chunks 
1 package wonton wrappers
1 egg
1 cup coconut oil
1 bottle teriyaki sauce
Lay out the wonton wrappers.
Use a pastry brush to wipe with the egg wash. Place a small piece of avocado in egg wonton and fold into a triangle, sealing the edges with egg.
Fry the wontons, each side, in the hot coconut oil.
Serve with the teriyaki sauce.

    I appreciate you sharing this on healthy vegan Friday, but unfortunately this recipe isn’t vegan as it contains egg. Wonton Wrappers are generally not vegan either.
    I have removed it from the linky party. I look forward to seeing more vegan recipes in future.
