As this weekend comes to a close – many of us (myself included) have spent time with family and friends – making (if not preparing) some delicious meals. However, on the eve of another work week I want to share with you a quick, easy, and light recipe put in your meal rotation – Ground Turkey Lettuce Wraps.
Having had company over this past Friday – I was looking for a recipe that would not have me slaving in the kitchen for hours on end.
I love tacos but was looking for something a bit lighter knowing that this was a holiday weekend and also that Mark and I were going to do some heavy home renovation the next day. Heading to Pinterest, I came across this recipe for Ground Chicken Lettuce Wraps – a copycat recipe of a certain famous Chinese Restaurant Chain.
Not having Ground Chicken and looking for a less hot version – I modified the one that I found and viola – Ground Turkey Lettuce wraps were created.
When all was said and done (and served with a side of long grain rice and roasted green beans – it was deemed a success. I did not take a picture BUT there might have been some discussion on who got the last bit of ground turkey.
I will warn you (as Mark found out) – make sure you don’t overfill your lettuce wraps or you will have to make quick work of shoving the entire wrap into your mouth.
I’m a 44year redheaded runner- living and working in Central Connecticut with my long time loving husband (and sometimes running czar) Mark and our dog Harley.
I have always enjoyed sports but it wasn't until 11 years ago that I decided to "take up" running. Since then, running has allowed me to have some awesome adventures as well as meet some pretty cool people.
Along with running, I am also passionate about food and drink, considering myself a bit of an amateur food geek.
So I decided to start my blog to combine both of these passions by documenting my journey to balance the two - one step at a time.
So thanks for stopping by and as always - Keep Calm. Eat Well. Run Strong.
