Veg Bad Week 4


Has The Veg Bad Challenge been a whole month now?  Wow, that's amazing!! But I don't know that it's true that a month makes a habit.  I am thankful that vegetables are coming into season and the variety of fresh is definitely increasing each week.  We've been enjoying asparagus, artichokes and mangos a lot lately. 

The recipe that I'm sharing this week is something that the men's group at our church likes to serve for fundraising, Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps.  I don't know how they make theirs, but mine was a super easy meal.  I didn't serve it with anything but will add chips and salsa next time or just plain old potato chips. 


Chicken Caesar Salad Wraps

10inch flour tortillas
1 bag of Caesar Salad kit
Chicken breast grilled and sliced (you can get this ready to go in the deli or freezer now a days)
shredded cheese of choice if desired

Mix up the salad in the bag, with half the dressing and the included cheese. Save the croutons for another time.
Place a heaping helping of salad on the tortilla, put on some chicken, and a sprinkling of cheese.  Wrap up the tortilla like a burrito and enjoy.  NUM!

If you're a vegetarian, this would be good on a pita without the chicken, Wendy's used to serve one and it was out of this world.

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast. Stories from the Kitchen Season 2, Episode 2: Taste and See Notes from the episode: Taste and See by Margaret Feinberg Dad’s New York Cheesecake (from the back of a Philidelphia Cream Cheese package) 1 ⅞ cups graham cracker crumbs ¼ to ½ cup butter, melted 1 cup sugar, divided 2 lbs cream cheese (4 packs) 2 large eggs (lightly beaten) 1 tsp vanilla 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup sour cream Preheat oven to 450F Mix well graham crackers, 2 tbsp sugar, and enough butter that the mixture holds together.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W
