The clash of the gigantics! The Mexican tortilla wrap and the German Pretzel, both are pretty much the food ambassadors for their countries and are well known across the world. Both are also loved by kids and adults alike.
Morning Snack: We had wraps for dinner last night and I kept a bit of the filling back for today.
The filling is pretty simple: Ready grilled chicken from the rotisserie, cream cheese, sun dried tomato pesto, green bell peppers. Mix these together and that was it. The rest of the fillings are the usual wrap condiments: Lettuce, tomatoes, grated cheese. With this some sweet and succulent pineapple and a few dried cranberries.
Afternoon Snack: The pretzel - always good for any time of day. I spread a bit of butter on it and cut it half as it was so big, it did not fit in the box. The natural yoghurt has a few chocolate crunchy biscuits in them. I am still trying to get Soeri to get to know (and eat) a few more dried fruit. The last time I put some in his box they came back. I'll keep trying until I come up with another idea like sneaking lettuce in sandwiches and wraps!
Bigger wrap, more filling and some hot salsa to spice it up! Wraps are great as leftovers and even better to take in lunch boxes. The pineapple is refreshing and the cranberries are sweet after the spicy salsa. Pretzels taste great plain or with butter. Get yourself a nice afternoon coffee and then treat yourself to the cool and crunchy yoghurt. The dried fruit are another great nerve food when you're having a hard day at work.
