My sweet boyfriend is out of town at annual training with the Army for 3 weeks. What does that mean for me, other than being lonely? DIET TIME! Since dating, I have gained those 10 pounds of “happy weight” that everyone dreads. How can I NOT eat when someone makes me a delicious dinner? How can I NOT drink a beer when there are several new, fun breweries and pubs? So I have been enjoying too much. These three weeks are crunch time! Exercise more. Eat less. Wish that it was easier to lose than gain…. Cheers to more bunny food!
Avocado and Chicken Lettuce Wraps
- 1 chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken, shredded
- 2 large leaves from iceburg or romaine lettuce
- 1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
- Red onion, to taste
- 2 small tomatoes, quartered
- 2 slices of cheese
- Dijon mustard, to taste
Pretend like you are making a burrito. Lay the leaf of lettuce on a plate. On one third of the lettuce, layer the chicken, avocado, onion, 4 pieces of tomato, the slice of cheese broken in half, and mustard to taste. Gently roll the lettuce up into a burrito shape. Makes 2 rolls.

I love wrapping stuff in lettuce, whether I’m watching my weight or not. Actually, I should always watch my weight. I’ve gained weight just from my blog cooking!
Me too, Mimi!
