Wrap It Up, Roll It, Chow It Down

Sounds like it could be a spoof version of a Bel Biv DeVoe song, doesn’t it?!  Ba-dump-bump.  Wow, what a way to start off the day.  Might be a sign that I need more sleep?! 

So I made the decision last night to catch up on the over 100 blog posts I had hanging out in Google Reader, rather than post my own.  I figured my brain would be clearer in the morning anyways … so much for that theory!  Bel Biv DeVoe??  Shoot, do you even know who I’m talking about?!  Their music was at its peak in the early 90s.


Enough jib-jab from me!!  On to dinner …

Asian Lettuce Wraps



(For two)

  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 onion, chopped fine
  • 1/3 block tofu, pressed and diced
  • 1/4 cup diced water chesnuts
  • Sauce variety, including: hoisin, tamari or soy, stir fry sauce
  • Sesame oil
  • Rice wine vinegar
  • Lettuce leaves


Cook veggies (except water chestnuts) until tender in skillet with a small amount of sesame oil; set aside.  Cook tofu in same pan with a small drizzle of tamari until lightly browned; set aside with veggies.  Add ground turkey to pan, brown, then add veggies, tofu and water chestnuts.  Add 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce, ~2 tbsp. stir fry sauce, tamari and rice vinegar to taste.  Mix well and simmer for 5-10 minutes.  Serve in cupped lettuce leaves.  Enjoy!

As you can see, we also had a tasty little chicken and veggie egg roll on the side.  Devin goes cuckoo over these babies.  You know I’m not really a fan of frozen, processed food, but these aren’t that bad.  They are actually pretty darn good.  The brand is Asian Sensations by Pagoda.  My justification comes from knowing they are much better for me than any egg roll I would order if I went out to eat.  😀


Alright, time to catch up on e-mails and get this day started … see ya later, fancies!
