Flu season found me...

I thought I had been doing a good job hiding from it.  Starting a blog + the flu = ughhh. Try coming up with witty, interesting posts when you're in a Alka Seltzer Severe Cold and Congestion haze.

Anyway, this is share worthy.  I'm not much of a cook, so recipe shares will be far and few between here, though you may see several ideas I like on Pinterest.  Thankfully, my husband is a damn good cook.  We actually met when we worked in a restaurant together.  He cooked and I was a server, but that's a story for another time.  I'm good at one dish meals and baking, that's about it.  I was absolutely starving this afternoon, and I really wanted a hummus wrap with kalamatas.  However, I either threw out my recently purchased hummus, or maybe late-night-sleep-snackings really are leading to weight gain! 

So, I got creative.  I pulled a small can of garbanzo beans out of the pantry and got the whole grain wraps out of the fridge.  I decided getting the food processor out would be too much work, so I dumped the beans into a bowl, smashed them up with a little minced garlic (out of a jar), slapped that on the wrap, covered that up with some baby spinach, shredded carrot, avocado, almond slices, and olives.  I decided to add a little full bodied Hidden Valley Ranch dressing to keep it from being too healthy.  YUM.  I think I just found a new favorite.

No photo.  My camera was CLEAR downstairs and that was also too much work.  Just trust and try it!
