It is as simple as using a lettuce leaf in place of a tortilla. I do this a lot for tacos. The hardest part is getting the leaves of lettuce off the head without tearing them. I found a really easy way to do this. I take out the core and the outer icky leaves. Then I hold the head under the faucet in the kitchen sink. I let the water start to run under the outermost leaf until the weight of the water peels the leaf away and it drops from the head. I do this over a colander. Voila! It goes very quickly and it always works for me. You can do chicken salad as wraps, shredded meats ( I do my pulled pork or have made sloppy joes this way). Hope you like it.

Yes, Rainbow's recipes are awesome! Her contribution is awesome, I have tried many of her recipes.

You're welcome! None of the recipes are mine, just trying them out and letting everyone know how they go!

I would think that it would be great with salmon. Just try whatever herbs you think would work well. Let me know how it goes!

Other times it seems to just stay runny. I haven't hit on what I am doing differently each time.
Yum! The mayo with dill pickles on the blackened tilapia sounds great! Interesting how the mayo works sometimes but not others. My mom used to make homemade mayo, and it always seemed like an art! I think I might try an immersion blender next time, so I can stream the oil in instead of adding one tbsp at a time. Good to know that it also thickens in the fridge.

Best thoughts and wishes are going out to you and your family. Do your best to stay true to yourself and to your diet program. I have found that it has helped me immensely because I don't have the stress of trying to figure out what to eat, i just have been eating on phase 1 (not my phase 3 as I should be) at least when I remember to eat.
Oh sweetie I am so sorry abt your momma!!! My prayers are with you and your family too!!! Dad got a quote from a Lic. Contractor to show the insurance company just what it would take to rebuild a home that the load bearing walls have been MOVED and are ready to collapse!

ARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

An interesting week. I felt hungrier than usual on Tuesday & Wednesday, but today I was not hungry between meals. I've been on IP for 2 months & looked back at the past week's food diary to see if I had screwed up...nothing to explain the difference. Whatever it was; it seems to be over. WI yesterday was great. 2.6 pounds lost & only 3 to my official goal, but 8 to my extended goal. DH is doing alternatives as of this past weekend..he got a bit jealous I think

I found a recipie for a mini pumpkin pie with a meringue topping - put it on the recipie thread but havent tried it - think i will sub the vanilla pudding for butterscotch but the crust is the crepe - the crispy cereal one looks like it might work better!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I tried one (it originally made 6 tarts) they were pretty good. The crust is on the drier side but the filling is nice and moist so it worked well together. I'm pretty happy with it all in all. I will have a look at the recipe thread and check out the one you posted...I might tweak my recipe a bit
