I have seen chard leaves used a wrappers for many things around blogland so I thought tonight would be a good time for me to try it out!
I bought a giant bag of carrots this weekend so I knew I wanted to use them in the wrap, now I just need a protein – enter the lentil!
First I washed the chard leaves and cut them in half (these are massive).
I peeled two carrots and filled the leaves with them equally.
I would like to roll these a little better next time. Ashley seemed to have a lot of luck with her breakfast chard leaves so I am going to her method out next time. Either way the leaves were a nice shell and not bitter at all, there was just way too much water.
Nick and I have booked an venue!
We are getting married at the Rock Ford Plantation in Lancaster PA! I have looked into pricing for invitations (we plan to make our own), I should be better two quotes from caterers soon and I am going dress shopping this weekend! Our color is parrot/wild apple (I think) with Maryland wildflower colors as our accent colors. I wanted a fall orange but then realized I didn’t want to limit myself because you never know what they will have in September!
Lots of stuff going on this weekend besides dresses. My mom and I are going to Rock Ford to check out the actual measurements and logistics of where things will take place. We are also going to check out hotels and B&Bs in the area! So exciting!!!!
After breakfast I set to work packing up the kitchen. I don’t even have 1/2 my kitchen stuff in this house and yet I have so many bags packed! To fuel me through the packing I made a red and green or I guess brown smoothie. Frozen raspberries, baby spinach, vanilla protein powder and skim.
THE RUN – I made it and it went really well! Once I got to mile four everything was moving easily and I knew I was going to be able to do this! It feels so amazing to be able to run this far. I used to think 3 miles was the furthest I could ever run and now I have more than doubled that!
Post recovery drink I wanted to try out.
Check out this chard that I got at the farmers market!
Along with my chard I cooked up some wheat berries and mixed them with FM tomato, yellow pepper, cuc, Mrs. Dash original blend and parm cheese.
I think I am off to have a chocolate vitatop and some coffee fro-yo, ya know got to clean out the freezer
Ugh is tomorrow really Monday?!? At least I only have a four day week.
Have a super rest of your evening!
