The wraps are (1) corn tortillas to go with the chicken and (2) kale tortillas (I'm sort of following this recipe: Spinach Tortillas | VegWeb.com, The World's Largest Collection of Vegetarian Recipes). DH forgot to bring lettuce from the garden, so we're using baby chard as the lettuce, some grated Monterrey Jack for cheese, there's guacamole, sour cream, onion, black olives, and 3 kinds of hot peppers--cayenne, jalapeno, banana, sweet peppers (bumper year for peppers). We also having corn-on-the-cob.

Dessert? Well, I plan on having a nap for dessert, but there is homemade vanilla bean ice cream...
I was just about to make the corn tortillas (the kale-whole wheat ones were done and being held in the oven) when all heck broke loose--apparently, the sky had fallen. The hens were squawking and running for cover. We bolted outside to see what was causing the chaos. No hawks or eagles in the sky, no fox, raccoon, or skunk. After we counted (and counted again), we figured that all the hens were safe and sound. To find out what really happened, stay tuned to the Chicken Chronicles--I'll tell the rest of the story there either later tonight or tomorrow.

Sorry--no pics, but I'm stuffed and we're doing a repeat with the leftovers for lunch tomorrow at the farm.
