Lazy weekend breakfast, or brunch or snack - TGIF!!!!

I am not one to celebrate Fridays or weekends usually. As an entrepreneur, weekends and public holidays really mean nothing to me since I work pretty much round the clock. However, this weekend is so different. I am so glad its the weekend because I have a pretty special Sunday planned and I simply can't wait for Monday because it is the beginning of something very special to me and a possible game changer. I will share details on Sunday....So keep everything crossed for me :-)
Weekends also tire me out more than usual because the hubby makes those days family time. Which is great. But it also means more meals and snacks have to be planned and made than during the week. And sometimes, I just don't want to. I said it. LOL
This simple 4 ingredient wrap is so easy to make, satisfies my boys - big and small and by tweaking 3 of the ingredients, it is transformed into a different palate experience and can be had several times a day.
You will need:
  • Flour tortillas
  • Cream cheese - plain or jazzed up with anything from mixed herbs to spices and even dried fruit
  • Lettuce - washed thoroughly in vinegar and water mixture and patted dry with a kitchen towel
  • Deli meat  - I used salami


On a flat plate, spread your cream cheese mix on a flour tortilla. Be as liberal as you want or skimp if you want. Place lettuce leaves on tortilla and top with deli meat slices.

Roll and slice and serve

That is how simple it is. I will say it again - I love to play around in my food lab but sometimes, I really am just too exhausted to make elaborate things. This wrap is an example of simple, fast and tasty and of course - pocket friendly.
I would love to hear what variations of this you try :-)

  1. Hi Uzo,

    I use the whole wheat wraps, baked turkey, humus and now lettuce(I use 3 ingredients before now) and I must say, it's super yummy. Even my 9yr old daughter loves it and take it to school sometimes
