Crunchy CranApple Butter Wrap

Oh so much better than Crunchy CranApple Butter Flat served yesterday for lunch and without a picture.  Loving the flavor of yesterday's flat but not the flat bagel bread itself, today the same recipe for Granola Crunch Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich Wraps was followed using Flatout Foldit 5 Grain Flax Flatbread as mentioned in the recipe.  What a difference the simple switch of a bread made.

Modifications Made:
As mentioned in the extremely funny original post, measurement of ingredients is a starting point.  Today for three wraps: 1/3 cup of Nut Butter, 1/3 thinly sliced Granny Smith apple with skin, a 1/3 cup of reduced sugar Craisins, 1 /3 cup of Kashi Honey Oat Granola.

Scaled for Likability: Great
I can already tell you these will be on the menu for lunch tomorrow.  If there were more Flatout Flatbreads, they would be on the lunch menu for Saturday as well.  These are the perfect it is too hot to eat summer lunch menu. Everything expect the granola is stored in the fridge making this a cold sandwich.  Served with sliced carrots and some grapes they are cold, filling, and refreshing.

Update: June 23, 2020
Was finally able to secure another package of Flatout Flatbread at the local Walmart yesterday and this morning for breakfast (yes, unbelievable breakfast) wraps were served.  Not as good for breakfast as they are for lunch (it's a mental thing, I know) they were still very filling, fresh, and energizing for the day.  Next, I want to try to make these at breakfast and eat at lunch to see how well the granola holds up to the moisture within the wrap itself.

Better Than Campbell's Old Fashion Vegetable Soup

Went to the store with the hopes of gathering fresh produce for soup. With more than 45 people in line for two packages of any meat product and the produce section containing only avocado, orange, and most randomly, strawberries, I settled upon canned soup.  Well not canned soup since that section was still void of food, too.  Instead soup made from canned goods as the canned vegetable section had been mostly restocked. Soups like this 15 Minute Vegetable Soup  are ideal in dire food situations such as current times. Modifications Made: Plain petite diced tomatoes omitted, frozen carrots instead of canned, green beans and corn undrained, peas omitted (gross, nasty little pods), one cup celery, three cups diced potatoes, one can tomato sauce, two beef and two pollo de tomate bouillon cubes, six cups water.  Once onions were softened, carrots/celery/potatoes/juice of green beans and corn, sauce, bouillon cubes, water were added and allowed to simmer until carrots almost tender.  Green be

Papas a La Mexicana (Ranchera)

It  is a crying shame that there are six hens and not a egg in sight. What am I supposed to do with homemade ranchero sauce? Thankfully with a few quick searches of the internet a recipe from my hometown newspaper was discovered: Papas Ranchera . Not once in the thirty years I lived in my hometown did I ever eat at a local food joint serving papas rancheras. No time like the present to remedy this cultural dish. Because this recipe is hidden behind a paywall (grrr...) I have included it here for you: Servings: 4-6  Ingredients: 1 pound potatoes, diced 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/2 large onion 1 1/2 medium tomatoes 3 jalapenos 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup juice from canned tomatoes Instructions: Fry potatoes in vegetable oil until lightly browned (about 4-6 minutes).  Saute onions, tomatoes, jalapenos until soft.  Add garlic powder and salt. Add tomato juice until vegetables are covered (may need to add water).  Bring to a boil and then add potatoes.  Cover and reduc

Sour Cream & Chive Scalloped Potatoes

Can't believe the Month of the Potato is over.  There are so many more potato recipes saved.  Guess I will have to work them into another month. Last week's scalloped potatoes were one of the best new recipes during the month of potatoes.  With today being the last day in the Month of Potatoes, I decided to go out with a bang by cooking another batch of scalloped potatoes but this time sour cream and chive.   The Best Scalloped Potatoes , or so they said. Modifications Made: Recipe was reduced by half.  Mayo was omitted and one entire package of chives were chopped and added to sauce before pouring onto layers. Scaled for Likability: Good Betty Crocker Sour Cream and Chive Box Scalloped Potatoes were the standard for this recipe.  These were a family favorite for years but have long since been discounted.  Bummer.  Trying to replicate this seemed easy enough.  Alas, it was not. These had a nice texture but were too oily from the cheese and did not contain enough onion, garlic,
