While Gen mulled over if it was ‘too easy’ and that it would not be challenging enough since we have been pushing our boundaries with our crazy Monthly Mystery Munchies, I thought that it was a great idea to work on something simple. One just cannot go wrong with wraps!
Besides, Gen has not been well of late with her worsening rheumatoid arthritis. You’d think that she would take a break from this month’s challenge, wouldn’t you? She could have easily postponed this (and not that I would mind at all!)… I mean, she’s in pain and I cannot imagine how horrid it would be for her.
But noooo, this woman trudges on! I am amazed at how far she pushed herself to still do the challenge. Her dedication is admirable and one of the reasons I love her.
We both had done this challenge with left-overs and whatever we can get hold of, then threw everything together to make something. The only difference is that Gen has the luxury of picking out her ingredients, fresh, from her garden where she grows her own herbs. How wonderful is that! Obviously, I’m jealous…:p
Look at this “herby, fully loaded wraps” which Gen created:
I kind of threw everything in my fridge into this meal: chicken, butternut, mushrooms, red onion, garlic and then some more garlic, mustard, coriander, Italian parsley, basil, honey, lemon, sour cream… errthang went in. I’m a sucker for fresh herbs. I try to use them as often as possible. There’s just something really cool about cooking stuff and throwing it in a wrap. Love it. I have basil, parsley, limes and lemons in my garden. Picking it makes me feel like I’m on a farm, all organic and fresh. Then I hear hooters and dogs barking, and I remember that nope, I actually live in a city. Still, it’s wonderful to use what I have in the garden. I’d really like a bacon tree. That would be ideal. Strangely, I can’t find any.
It may be just “threw everything into this meal”, but she’s got her protein and all things healthy covered. I had to laugh about her bacon tree!
As Gen rightfully said it, a little less conversation, a little more food action! (I love how she worded that!) So… here we go… all wrapped up for this month!
