My Favorite New Entree

Okay, this new low-carb-low-sugar-diabetic diet is seriously cutting in my awesome CARB filled dinners. I made up this nice little lettuce wrap recipe after being inspired by PF Chang's lettuce wraps. Get excited. It's GOOOOD.

1 lbs of ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 can of chunked chicken (or 1 Cup of cubed cooked chicken)
1 c of diced tomatoes
green pepper, onion, minced garlic (to taste)
1/2 c yellow squash
1/2 c green squash
1/2 c corn
Parmesan cheese
1/4 c can't believe it's not butter
Full size Romaine Lettuce Hearts

Cook the chicken, ground beef, onions, garlic, butter, tomatoes, green pepper and corn until brown. turn the heat down to low, throw the squash in (cut up into small fourths) and put the lid over the pan, steam & simmer for about 10 minutes until the squash is cooked. Sprinkle salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese over the top, stir. Put into a bowl.

Grab the Romaine Lettuce hearts, break them off as full size pieces, rinse and dry off lightly with a paper towel.

Take the meat & vegetables and put them down the middle of the lettuce rhine. Roll like you would a tortilla and enjoy! It's DELICIOUS!!!

Ps. Bonus? Jaylee gobbles them up, completely delicious!

Wow! That does sound excellent! :) I'll have to try it out. ...High five that JJ loves it as well. That's always a plus when your children will eat something healthy too (though, I think JJ is a fairly healthy little girl, anyway!) ;)

Tonight I made it and substituted mushrooms for the corn. It tasted great! Pretty sure you could add any vegetable or bean to this wrap and it would taste nummy.
