Chicken Caesar Wraps

The very first time I had these was in a hospital cafeteria. I know for a fact that on Tuesdays they serve this, so I have been trying to keep all my appts on Tuesdays! Hahaha. But seriously. Good.

Wrap Shells or Tortillas (I like the green ones, super thin)
Caesar salad (I used bag salad and dressing, really complex I know)
Chicken Strips (or grilled but come on, the deli makes it for you)

Pretty complex really. You toss together your salad. I used Ken's litehouse dressing. They make a lite caesar that is delish! Chop up your chicken strips and toss into sald, make sure to stir. Lay out shell. Pour salad and chicken mix onto wrap shell, sprinkle with cheese and wrap it up. I cut mine in half, it's easier to devour that way.....Also, this would be good with bacon too.

St Patty's Oreos

These are simple and I don't know anyone that doesn't like an oreo, for real!

Double Stuffed Oreo's (I wanted mint but husband doesn't likey)
White Chocolate melty disks
Milk Chocolate melty disks
Sprinkle of choice
Wax paper or alluminum foil works too

Lay out a long piece of wax paper. In a bowl (cereal) pour out the sprinkles you plan on using and have ready by wax paper near. Take a mug and pour in a handful of melty disks. Put in microwave for 25 seconds, take out and stir. Put back in for another 25 seconds. Take out and stir, just do this until your chocolate is melted, but MAKE SURE YOU DON'T COOK TOO LONG. It was scald the When melt take Oreo and dip into the chocolate, I do about half way. Then roll edge into sprinkles. Lay on wax paper to harden and cool. And repeat. Make sure you lick the mugs clean..I did. And enjoy!
