Taco Wraps!!

I have concocted my own version of Taco wraps. My family really digs it, so I thought I would share.

1 lb ground Turkey
1/2 c Old El Paso taco mix
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup frozen corn

And for the wrap: Ole` Mexican Foods: Xtreme Wellness High fiber, low carb  Tortilla wrap (It has NO Cholesterol, Hydrogenated oil.) It does have: 9 g fiber, 5 g Net carbs, 5 g protein and Omega 3 from Olive Oil!!

So I browned the turkey, added the beans, corn and seasoning.

Added mexican cheese, 1 tablespoon Thousand Island dressing, spinach leaves. Then wrapped them up!
Yums! Sorry no pics...but these are really really good.

Normally, I love SUMMER!  I have been experiencing a very chaotic life, at the moment. Therefore, my mood has been a little bit melancholic. Thus, I have not posted since the end of May...

To recap some events....The girls are now out of school for the summer. Cheyenne has went to her dad's for now. Maybe a permanent thing. THIS DOES NOT MAKE  ME HAPPY. However, what do you do with the rebellious child?? 
Minnie has decided to stay home for the summer. I am enjoying my time with her. I was able to celebrate her 13th birthday with her this year. Yay.

I have turned another year older on June 4th!. My Bestie, gave me a cookie cake and flowers for my birthday. My Hubs, Minnie and I,  went to eat at my favorite restaurant, Carrabba's,  after I got off of work at 3pm. And another cookie cake. I am truly blessed.  I have to remember, I am not in charge, God is... It's hard to let go sometimes and let him take over.

June 9, 2013: We spent the day at Cades Cove in Townsend, Tn with my parents and sister's family. We had a picnic and hung out for awhile before finishing the loop. I enjoyed the time with my Mom, Dad and the family.  

Jimmy and I have restarted P90X. I am so very sore. Now if we could get the nutrition together to go with it, the results will be spectacular!
