Monday Monday. Give me allllll the coffee today, friends. You feeling it too? Some Mondays I am so ready to rock into the week…this Monday, totally ready to rock myself back to sleep. Perfect day for a hardly-a-recipe recipe, no?!
B.B.T Lettuce Wraps. Bacon Bleu Tomato Lettuce Wraps. Because you know what? Sometimes I don’t really feel like cooking. And sometimes, even though I don’t feel like cooking, I still feel like eating something yummy.
I mean this is so simple it’s silly. A romaine lettuce leaf filled with smokey bacon and perfectly juicy, sweet, sliced tomato and topped with tangy, rich, decadent bleu cheese dressing. Not much. But SO much. I just love these. And I kinda thought you might too.
The bleu cheese dip dolloped right on top is the perfect finish for these little hand held yummies. It’s something I almost always have in our refrigerator…it makes the most perfect veggie dip, sandwich spread, green salad dressing and so much more. And having it on hand already prepared in the refrigerator makes these lettuce wraps even more of a breeze.
Just another barely-a-recipe quickie to add to your meal rotations, friends….and just in time for the busy week you likely have ahead. I hope its off to a great start!
