Last night {and the night before!} we had lettuce wraps.

They’re Elliott’s fave.

There was just a bit of the meat mixture and lettuce odds and ends leftover, so for lunch I fixed up a {lettuce wrap wrap} if you will…

I just took the meat and heated it with a little of the leftover rice, chopped the lettuce and added some cucumbers and cilantro. I tossed it in a little Sriracha Ranch, rolled some in into a warm flour tortilla and ate the rest as a salad.

Sure was a nice break from tuna.

If you haven’t made lettuce wraps at home, you really should try them. You don’t need to go to P.F. Chang’s to get your wrap on!

You’ll be lucky if you have any leftovers, though.

Have a happy, {wrappy} Wednesday!

Cobb & A Bob

Sounds kinda like a new Dr. Seuss book, huh?

If you’re a cobb salad lover, then you really must try these cobb salad wraps:

They were inspired by a cobb salad sandwich I enjoyed a million and a half years ago up in wine country…

I would suggest a spinach or sun-dried tomato tortilla, but a regular flour one works just fine.

Cobb Salad Wraps

3 frozen chicken tenders or one large chicken breast, thawed

Montreal Steak seasoning or salt & pepper

1 hard boiled egg, chopped

Bacon (I used the REAL bacon bits in the little jar, but if you have some just cook it up and chop)

Blue cheese crumbles (about 2T…it can be overpowering so don’t go overboard)

1/2 tomato, seeded & chopped

Olives, chopped (I omit these since they’re not my fave)

Shredded lettuce

Avocado slices


Bottled Ranch dressing

Sprinkle Montreal Steak seasoning on chicken and grill on grill pan (you can also use a rotisserie chicken or some leftovers). Let cool and cut into bite-sized pieces and put into a bowl.

Add egg, bacon, blue cheese, tomato & olives. Mix with a bit of mayo to bring it all together.

Drizzle just a bit of Ranch onto a flour tortilla and sprinkle some lettuce down the middle. Add a couple slices of avocado and then a couple spoonfuls of the chicken mixture. Fold in both ends of the tortilla followed by the sides. Place seam side down and cut in half!

Super tasty.


I took Miss Elliott to get a cute bob this afternoon:

I am SO over her fighting me every night and morning when I try to brush it.

“Yes, you HAVE to comb your hair after the bath.” and “Yes, you MUST brush your hair before school!”

This will help for a little while.

She loves her new ‘do and is getting so much better in the chair. Yay!

I hope you’re doing whatever makes you HAPPY this weekend!

Lettuce Wrapz

Why is it that things seem cooler with a “z” at the end instead of an “s”?

Well, this recipe is cool on it’s own and does not in any way need a “z”, but maybe it will make ME look cooler!

I discovered this recipe in Rachael Ray Everyday Magazine under the “Take 5” section.

Teriyaki Turkey Lettuce Wraps

I am all about the ground turkey so it was an immediate contender for a quick weeknight dinner!

It. is. so. easy. and. so. good. Seriously!

I make some steamed rice and place it on the lettuce leaf and then put a scoop of the meat mixture and you’re good to go! Roll up and eat like a little lettuce taco!

The lower carb option without the rice is just as good, too!

Here is how I set it up:


And this is what it looks like all assembled:


Really. You’ve got to try these. They’re almost as good as P.F. Chang’s.

Now if I could just work on their Ground Chicken & Eggplant dish, I’d be in heaven! Now THAT is some good eats!
