Middle Eastern Chicken Wraps (as easy as it gets)
Sorry for taking the day off yesterday… I came down with a little something (and not a good something)! I’m pretty sure my eye watered ALL day, and that I went through an entire box of tissues blowing my nose at work haha NO. FUN. Anyhow, I was feeling pretty crummy when I got home and was not in the mood to cook dinner (which is how you KNOW I’m not feeling too hot ;))
Anyhow, I walked into the house to this glorious spread:
Yah… I have the best husband ever!
He stopped by the Middle Eastern Market and picked up some of my absolute FAVORITES: fresh made pita, hummus, and the most GORGEOUS Kalamata olives (yes, I just referred to olives as gorgeous). Then he swung by Publix and snagged a hot Rotisserie Chicken, came home, and chopped up some lettuce and tomato from the fridge and VOILA! This baby was born:
Not one homemade thing and it was probably the best thing I ate all week (LOVE when that happens!)!! All it takes is a few fresh, quality ingredients and you have one heck of a meal! Thank you Mike for being the brains behind this operation!
Note: If you don’t have a Middle Eastern Market or Restaurant nearby, you may want to whip up your own pita and hummus (as those are the critical parts of this dish & you don’t want to skimp on quality!).
The only thing I have left to say is this: Give yourself a break from cooking and whip this nutritious and delicious treat up ASAP!
Oh, yah and to cap off my meal, I curled up under my blanket and with another Hot Toddy (compliments of the hubs)… (Hot Toddy = Tea, Honey, Lemon, and Gentleman Jack… an old fashioned cold remedy).
I am very blessed.

I thought I’d give you a behind-the-scenes shot of how I get photos at night time these days (YAY Studio lighting! I LOVE IT.)
