He called me from work last week and asked "What are you having for lunch?"
"A Spinach Wrap!" was my reply.
And he said "It sounds healthy and refreshing! That's good!"
Then, the next day, he called again and asked the same question and I replied "Spinach Wrap"
"Hmm, Yum Again!" he said.
And for the remainder of the week, he popped the same question. Yes you guessed it right, I answered: "Spinach Wrap!"
"What? SPINACH WRAP Again??? Don't you get tired of it?" he asked in disbelief. "Love, you are usually creative. What happened? Aren't you inspired at all?"
I smiled, little did he know that I've been enjoying my spinach wrap marathon lately. I use my spinach wrap as a blank canvass, and pretty much. everyday I create a colorful new picture. It depends on my mood, really. Sometimes I could easily throw in any left-overs from the previous night to a bed of spring greens. Sounds healthy, right? Or sometimes, I would grill it with cheese (oooh gooey) or add some cream with fresh fruits... oh so divine...
So ok, in case he calls today, and he pops the same question... I will not say Spinach Wrap. This time I would say: Red Snapper with Lemon Coleslaw on a Spinach Cup and Wasabi Mayo.
I can't wait to hear what he has to say this time. How about you... What are you eating for lunch today?
Red Snapper with Lemon Coleslaw on a Spinach Cup and Wasabi Mayo
Pan-fried fish strips
I used Pan Fried Red Snapper which I seasoned with salt and pepper and lemon. Pan fried each side, takes about 4-6 minutes)

Wasabi mayo: 2 tbsp mayo, a dot of wasabi (you may add more if you want)
Small Spinach wraps
Assemble them all together and you will enjoy a refreshing lunch in no time. Enjoy

An apple sounds healthier. I wish I could stay long and not get hungry with just an apple. Thanks for stopping by Medeja. It's been awhile since I last saw you here. :)Delete
I got hungry reading your post on red snapper a.k.a. lapu-lapu with the spinach and coleslaw. Great idea! Must try this. This is perfect comfort food with rice, too. Thanks for sharing, Malou!ReplyDelete
Hi Betty Ann,Delete
Yes rice is good with this too but I'm trying to stay away from it for awhile. Spinach wrap make up for it though and yep i've been on a spinach kick lately grabe haha.
If my hubby calls everyday what we have for lunch or dinner, I will get so stressed up and tell him, "Let's go out to eat" :D Just proves that I have higher levels to reach.....hehe. Love your spinach wrap. It looks so refreshing, healthy and delicious. I don't mind joining you for the marathon eating :D Love how you make it even more creative.....mmmmReplyDelete
