There are times in life when lunch time feels like a blur, especially when there is a two and a half year old on the verge of a meltdown. Actually, make that a two and a half year old, a 30 year old and we’ll throw in a baby for good measure. Then, to top it off you look in the fridge at least 10 times in a span of 30 seconds with the 11th time hoping for the breaking of the five loaves to miraculously appear.
But of course, that doesn’t happen. Instead, I start pulling out the lunch idea and go for hors d’oeuvres for lunch. Sounds good to me! I mean really, don’t you find yourself eating more of those tiny whatevers they have on the silver plate at weddings than anything else. One because you’re thinking, “who includes their great aunt in the receiving line?” and two, “Man, these are fun to eat!” Well, we have a “No Great Aunt” included in our family motto, but fun miniatures for lunch time sure stands the test of time. **Plus, anything with a toothpick always adds an element of pazzazz for the diner, especially when they’re 38 inches tall.
V. Storey’s Pinwheels
2 whole wheat tortillas
1 mango, cut into thin slices
2 slices of ham
About 2 -3 tablespoons of cream cheese
few sprigs of basil leaves
1 tomato, cut into cubes
1/2 avocado, cut into cubes
1/4-1/2 peach, cut into thin slices
pinch of salt & chili flakes
Put the cream cheese across both tortillas. Put one piece of ham on each tortilla. Top with mango, tomato, peaches, avocados, basil, & sprinkle of chili flakes and salt. Roll it up (think of rolling up a sleeping bag as you continue to tighten in the rolled end). Cut it up into pinwheels and put a toothpick through to keep it contained. Enjoy!
