Chez Delicious Consumption, cafe style lettuce wraps

Welcome to Chez Delicious Consumption, the organic and inviting cafe that I call home. The menu du jour: Ham and Cheese lettuce wraps, fresh blackberries, fresh snow peas, and a sprinkling of potato chips.

Large leaves of Romaine Lettuce serve in place of bread for this light lunch. Organic Romaine sold unpackaged, usually has the largest leaf structure. Packaged (bagged or in a carton) Romaine works as well, you just might need two wraps to feel satisfied, since the leaves are smaller. In this version, I added slices of ham, Cabot Cheddar Cheese, tomato slices, and spicy brown mustard. Remember that the entire romaine leaf is edible, the stalk portion is delightfully crunchy and shouldn't be wasted!

With cold and flu season raging its last battles before the calm of summer, I must declare my love for EmergenC, the 1,000 mg vitamin C supplement powder that mixes with water to form a fizzy flavored concoction. My favorite so far: pink lemonade. Don't forget to drink your water.

Enjoy, and turn your everyday dining into a cafe experience!
