Steak-Fried Chicken Wraps:


Steak-Fried Chicken Wraps:


            So, the steak-fried part is coming from the fact that I’m using beef broth to make the gravy that goes on this wrap. There are endless possibilities for the goodies that you can add. I was just thinking that cranberry sauce might be excellent, but I don’t have any on hand right now. Today we are eating ours with diced onion and romaine lettuce.


boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into thin strips, (I used three.)
¼ c. gluten free flour
¼ c. grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 c. beef broth
1 c. heavy cream
small flour tortillas or wraps
chopped white onion
romaine lettuce



            Take a large Ziploc bag and fill it with the gluten free flour, parmesan, pepper, salt, pepper flakes, and garlic powder. Add the chicken strips and shake the bag to get them all coated in the mixture. In a large skillet on medium heat, melt the stick of butter. When the butter is melted and bubbly, add the chicken strips to the skillet. Cook them on medium, turning them with a spatula, until they are browned on both sides. Remove from them from the skillet and drain them on clean paper towels. 


Add the beef broth and minced garlic to the butter remaining in the pan. Let the broth simmer for about fifteen minutes until it has reduced considerably then add the heavy cream. This is the tedious part, but the best way to make gravy. Using a spatula you need to continually and slowly scrape the bottom of the skillet. Do this until the mixture becomes thick and takes on a gravy consistency. You want for it to bubble but not too hard or it won’t come out right. It may take up to thirty minutes to get the correct consistency. While you are working on it you can add salt and black pepper to taste.


We like to brown our corn tortillas on the stove in a little bit of vegetable oil. Add a strip of chicken to your wrap. Cover it with a spoonful of gravy and add any other desired toppings. Enjoy!


 On a 1-10 scale here is how my Little Lunis rated this meal: 
Joelle and Cyrus both gave it a 10.
Aurora gave it a 9. She thought it was a little too spicy. She didn't want a tortilla for hers    and just ate the chicken with gravy.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.

20 Things…you learn after moving to Florida.
1.There is a big difference between a roach and a palmetto bug. Real roaches are the guys from New York. They infest, they are spooky smart, they are dirty and nasty, and you have to work really hard to get rid of them. Palmetto bugs however, are big and creepy and dumb. You usually see them outside at night and they will fly right at your face. They don’t infest because they are native and they can’t survive in our AC temps. 2.Every public indoor place will always be frigid. Most of your friend’s houses will be as well. I take a sweater with me almost everywhere that I go, and if I forget to I regret it. 3.Outside of weather emergencies, weathermen are superfluous. In the rainy season, which is most of the time, there is an eighty percent chance of rain, every single day. The weather man has no idea what time it will rain, how hard, or for how long, and there is no way for him to predict it. You just have to go out there with your fingers cr…

The Power Of Willful Ignorance

I watched a woman say these words in a speech a few moments ago and nothing could be more true...willful ignorance is insanely powerful. Willful ignorance is the reason that good German people allowed their neighbors to be dragged off by the Nazis in the middle of the night. It is the reason that American people choose to believe our homeless are lazy and irresponsible instead of facing the reality that their situations have arisen because of widespread mental illness and cooperate greed. It is the reason that you will pick up a steak on your way home from work tonight, not bothering to find out where it came from, because you just don’t want to know. The truth is too disgusting.
I have gone on about the meat industry quite a bit and my goal here is not to do that. I love to eat meat, I will state that again, but the example that comes from our consumption of factory meat is so powerful when it comes to explaining willful ignorance that I want to use it. Out of ALL of the many, many,…

Christmas in Florida

Christmas in Florida
December tenth today and I swam my thirty laps in the pool. It’s pretty chilly, but I don’t really feel it after the second lap. I am so grateful that I am able to keep swimming this late into the season. My body responds much better to swimming than it does to running, and I still get a great cardio work out.
This is our seventh or eighth Christmas in Florida now. To be honest, it wasn’t much of an adjustment for me. I have lived in climates where we got tons of snow. I even graduated from high school in Northern Michigan, but I really don’t miss it. I am a worrier, so snow just makes me think of bad roads and car accidents. I think snow is absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t like the cold. I would be perfectly happy if snow stayed on mountains. I would visit it to ski.
I finally convinced my husband for the first time this year that we really did not need a tree. He is partial to real ones, and I have no real love for artificial trees. Not once in all of the years…
