Waist Watchers Special - California Chicken Wraps

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...It's been a busy day. The stitches were finally removed from my right eye and the doctor was pleased with the state of both transplants. You probably heard the huge sigh of relief that inadvertently escaped my lips when he gave me the news. That gave the  Silver Fox and me an excuse to celebrate, and the good news happened to coincide with a break in the weather. We decided to take  a long walk along the river bank and have our first picnic of the season. These Greek-style chicken wraps were the mainstay of today's picnic basket. I'm not overly fond of wraps but these are exceptionally good and I think you will enjoy them as much as I do. I like to make them the night before I plan to serve them. To keep them fresh, I double wrap the rolls. First, they are rolled in several layers of just-moist paper towels and then sealed with plastic wrap before they are refrigerated and the flavors have a chance to blend. I do hope you'll try these amazingly tasty wraps. They are fast and easy to prepare and they make a perfect meal for dieters and those seeking a healthy alternative to standard lunch fare. Here is how these delicious wraps are made.

Mary, It's terrific news that your eyes are healing properly! Eyesight is so important to the quality of life. My wife had 2 cataract surgeries this past big deal these days...but what a difference in her daily life! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
