Just ’cause

Actually, I’m posting this just because it’s been almost a week since I last posted and I felt I should let people know what’s going on. And, as you wait with bated breath, because the adventurous Big Cracker is always entertaining, there’s really nothing to tell. Unfortunate, I know. Other than a potluck lunch at work yesterday, and a new Big Cracker food creation, it’s been pretty quiet. I’ve been re-running Season 3 of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and I managed to get all my Christmas shopping done, wrapped and mailed. Woo! I had to bail on D&D last night, since I had to go to the dentist for some kind of treatment on a couple of my molars. Although, I did spend the extra time at home getting a pretty decent score (IMO; it was 73) in Tower Defence.

My food creation? Smoked turkey tortilla rolls:

  • 6 flour tortillas (at room temperature)
  • 250mL spreadable cream cheese
    I used roasted red pepper cream cheese.
  • 250mL guacamole
    see my guacamole recipe, minus the onion and tomato
  • about 300g thinly sliced smoked turkey breast
  • On each tortilla:
    1. spread the cream cheese thinly almost to edge of tortilla
    2. lay turkey slices to cover same area
    3. spread guacamole
    4. roll tightly, periodically lifting slighty to ensure ingredients are not squeezed out
    5. refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours
    6. immediately prior to serving, slice diagonally into 4-5cm wide slices
  • Enjoy!
