Lunch was a spinach, garlic and pesto wrap (burrito size) stuffed with smoked ham salad (Hormel brand canned smoked ham flaked with mayo, celery, green onion (scallion), red and green bell pepper, salt and ground 4 blend peppercorns) and I used baby spinach instead of lettuce on the wrap and served dried cherries and cranberries on the side. I shared 1/2 of this wrap with my daughter.



Now I need to figure out an exciting and new way to serve pork chops.

Leftover baked chicken. I may not have too much of it, I had a HUGE burger at lunch and am still feeling full, so maybe just a thigh and some salad for me.

Very warm here today and we had a big lunch (A&W) so I picked up a rotisserie chicken, cut that up with some roast beef, ham and salami and put out 3 different salads and we had a cold plate buffet! Went over very well.
