Charred Asparagus gets all hot and bothered by the briny embrace of feta. Lemons’ astringent bite completes this ménage a trois.

Extra yummy with roasted potatoes!

Mexican Wrap

meatless monday Mar 11, 2019

Beat Box Lunch Rap- I like big wraps with some beans refried, avocado lovers can’t deny, when the corn walks in with that chunky funky taste and leaves salsa on your face you say, yum!!
 

Mexican Wrap

 
1 cup assorted bell peppers (sliced thin)
½ cup red onion (sliced thin)
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
4 whole-wheat tortillas
1 cup refried beans
½ cup pepper jack cheese (shredded)
1 avocado (sliced thin)-{squeeze lemon overtop to stay fresh}
½ cup corn kernels
Cilantro
1 cup salsa
 
Sauté onion and peppers in olive oil until tender. Spread ¼ cup bean dip on each tortilla. Sprinkle sparingly with cheese. Lovingly strew the avocado and corn over and top with the onion and pepper mix. Boldly blanket the chopped cilantro if you love it- or leave it off if you don’t! Roll tightly and serve with salsa.
 
XOXO Vicky

Hello!


Is your 2019 as wild for you as it is for us? 
What a year we are having at the McKim household!!!
AND…. It’s still only February!  We have had so much happen for us already. 

We have officially SOLD our home and acreage!!!  We had listed our place last Aug for three months, but it didn't sell, so we thought we would try again in the Spring - April or May.
Well wouldn’t you know it, we got a call from our realtor and someone wanted to show it.  Badda Boom… Our place SOLD!

We’ve  moved our belongings into storage and are heading out on a cruise through the Panama.

Please don’t ask us what we are doing or where we are going because honestly we don’t know!!!!!!  
I will keep you informed as it comes to us.

Love you and I am thrilled to share this with you.

Pistou Portabello

Ingredients:
4 portobello mushrooms – cleaned with stumps and gills removed
