First up we have a wrap with provolone, red bell pepper, marinated artichokes, and spinach. I had to slightly wilt the spinach as the wife's not a big fan of raw spinach. I was going to flavor the wrap with some sort of a sauce but since I went the marinated artichoke route I let them do the flavoring. Wraps have always been difficult for me in packaging. They tend to fall apart easily or become unrolled. I ended up wrapping the whole thing in parchment paper to survive delivery. It's worth remembering that normal tape does not stick to parchment paper. In retrospect that makes a ton of sense since parchment paper is suppose to resist sticking in general. So a bit of kitchen twine came to the rescue.
Quinoa never ceases to amaze me. This is a wonderful little warm salad with shitake, feta, and spinach. The warm quinoa and roasted shitake quickly wilts the spinach. It's all tossed together with a bit of red wine vinegar and olive oil.
Just to round things out I also tossed in a package of low carb cookies so that there would be dessert for the sweet tooth.
