    I've been bitten by the wrap bug! This week I bought a package of whole wheat wraps (81 calories each) and have been a wrappin' machine ever since!

    I spread one today with Rondele Bleu Cheese spread, then laid some very thin slices of Bartlett Pear on top, rolled that sucker up and MMMM-MMMM-MMMM was it good!

    Last night for dinner we sauteed some portobella mushrooms with onions, and wrapped them up with hummus, smooshed avocado, rice and salsa in a wrap. DEEEELISH!

    Yesterday I had a PB&J wrap.

    The day before I had a wrap with just avocado and rice.

    SSSSSSSSOMEBODY SSSSSSSTOP ME!

    What else can I wrap!?!? (bear in mind we're not eating much in the way of meat or dairy)

    :supergrin:

    I live on wraps... When I make them at home I get the lo-carb wraps by Toufayan...
    On the road I go to Subway and order them the way I'd make them...

    I 'just finished' a Baked Ham, Swiss cheese, and spinach wrap with Guldens mustard...
    Folded and tossed for 2 minutes in the George Foreman grill sprayed with a tiny bit of cooking oil spray...

    All the flavors and juices come out of the ingredients when you heat'em up...

    I let it cool for a minute then cut into bitesize pieces..
    Less messy...

    Mortadella and cheese--- Salami, Ham, Pepperoni and cheese--- Tuna Melt wraps---
    Egg salad... Crab Salad... Breakfast Burritos...
    Grilled peanut butter and banana with a honey drizzle...

    :beer:

    Oooh that sounds interesting! Isn't it funny how peanut butter can be combined with stuff that sounds just horrible, but it tastes so yummy?

    I confess that I will at peanut butter and yellow mustard sandwiches. They are fabulous together.

    My mother's family sandwich is...

    Peanut butter, lettuce and mayo sandwich.

    My wife did not believe me when I told her about these sandwiches, but both my mother and aunt have told her about them also... so she believes now... and is grossed out by the idea. I have not had one since I was a teenager, but one of these weekends I'll volunteer to make lunch and give my wife a surprise! She did not believe me when I told her I could cook brussel sprouts in a way which she would love also... (I did and do! - the trick is canned milk and butter... hell you could make almost anything edible with that combination!)

    Shoeless,

    I wrap breakfast. I use Eggbeater Southwestern Style with some tofu sausage and Nacho/Taco cheese and salsa over the top. I'm using "Carb Balance" fajita size wraps due to the higher fiber content.

    Brussel Sprouts (modfied from a Julia Child's recipie)


    A bunch of brussel sprouts.
    Clean brussel sprouts and cut the bottom off.
    Half or quarter brussel sprouts
    Par Boil: Drop the brussel sprouts in boiling water for just a minute or perhaps two. Par boiling removes some of the bitter taste of brussel sprouts and softens them up for the next part of cooking.
    Drain the brussel sprouts
    Melt half a stick of butter in a frying pan
    Dump the brussel sprouts in the butter - stir for 15-30 seconds and
    Cover the brussel spouts with canned milk.

    Cook over low heat, using a spoon or spatula to break up the brussel sprouts as you stir.

    Add salt and pepper...

    Cook until most of the milk evaporates off (no pun intended) and the brussel sprouts have the consistency of lumpy mashed potatoes. Test taste as you are stirring to figure the salt & pepper and to figure when to pull the brussel sprouts.

    I have a good Brussels sprouts recipe too!

    Cut your brussels sprouts into small wedges.

    Put a whole can of vegetable (or chicken) stock into a saute pan and put in the sprouts. Add some minced garlic and about two teaspoons of balsamic vinegar.

    Cover the pan and let it come to a boil. Then reduce the heat and simmer until the sprouts are the tenderness you like.

    So simple and sooo delish!

    Try the PB and Pickles and report back. Sweet Baby Jerkins sliced are the best to use. Even on bread it's great. I remember it being my fav when mom packed my lunch in 1st grade...

    The mention of sandwiches reminded me of when I went to grade school. I used to trade my whole lunch with a friend for his sandwiches. His mother would spread mayo, salted peanuts on lettuce. I can still tast them.......gooooood!
