Improved chicken wrap

This is a weekly prep kind of idea:
2 shredded chicken breasts
2 thick cut slices ham diced
Toss in 1-2 cups bbq sauce
Shake and store

Spoon 3 tbsp onto tortilla with
Splash of ranch
Sprinkle shredded cheese
Heaping tbsp diced onion and mixed pepper
2 strips cooked bacon
1 handful spinach.

Even better grilled.


1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup  brown sugar

1/4 cup White granulated sugar

1 egg

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup 3.25% milk

1/2 of a 390g bag of mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla extract until fluffy. Beat in egg. Add flour, baking soda and milk and stir with a wooden spoon. Add chocolate chips. 

Bake, one sheet at a time, for 10 to 15 min or until golden around the edges and set in the centre. Let cool on sheets for 2 min, then transfer to racks to cool.

Hamburger breakfast 

This one would have worked better with a little more store bought. 

Take your favorite hamburger patty (I made some hamburger rings so it looks messy)

 Cut out the centre to leave a ring (I think it would be better to do this after they’re partially cooked)

Pan fry until almost cooked – use a lid to cook more evenly 

Drop an egg in the centre

Cook egg

Serve like hamburger – yup cheese works here. 

I also should have thawed hamburger buns for this one. 

Edit: store bought burgers fall apart too.
