Ground Turkey Crunchwrap Supreme

ground turkey crunchwrap

Linking up with AP again for her weekly Pin-Tastic Challenge! This weekend I made this pin. I modified her crunchwrap a bit using tortilla chips for the crunch, greek yogurt instead of sour cream, and ground turkey instead of beef. It turned out ridiculously good! It will definitely be our new taco night weekly rotation (along with a skinny margarita of course). Mia even ate this (you can leave out the “crunch” part) So it’s toddler friendly too.

**If you wanted to go all carb free on this, you could just wrap it in lettuce leaves for the “crunch.”

Ingredients:

  • flour tortillas
  • restaurant style tortilla chips
  • lean ground turkey meat
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1/2 pack of taco seasoning (you can buy the packet or make your own here
  • shredded mexican cheese
  • plain greek yogurt (I used Fage brand)
  • diced Tomatoes
  • diced lettuce

Instructions:

  1. Brown diced onion with salt, pepper, and a little olive oil until translucent. Lean turkey meat is pretty bland at first and the onion gives it more flavor.
  2. Brown ground turkey meat (add a little more salt and pepper) with the onions, then add the taco seasoning.
  3. Microwave flour tortillas in microwave for about 10 seconds to warm them up. This makes them easier to wrap.
  4. Lay the flour tortilla down on a plate. Spoon ground turkey mixture in the middle of the tortilla. Top with shredded cheese, a few tortilla chips, a dollop of greek yogurt, tomatoes, and lettuce.
  5. This is where I had a little trouble, so please read carefully! Starting with the bottom of the tortilla, fold the edge up to the center. Continue doing this is a clockwise or counter-clockwise movement until all of the tortilla is folded over, and the filling is entirely enclosed.
  6. Spray a pan with cooking spray. Carefully place the crunchwrap down on the pan. Press with a spatula and cook until brown, about 2 minutes per side. Flip over and repeat. Enjoy!

No-Sew Pillow

Excited to link-up with AP again for Project Pinterest! Cost for me: $7 since I had everything but the glue and velcro on hand.

This little DIY is so easy, it’s dumb. I found this video on YouTube from Pinterest. The idea is to take standard size pillow cases you may already have laying around or you can find fun ones at flea markets, thrift stores, etc. and turn them into toss or throw pillows. I used shams from our master bedding, Poetical by Barbara Barry. The inserts (20X20) can be found inexpensively at Ikea. The woman in the video uses much larger casings and pillows but I found these work just as well.

1. Stuff the insert (pillow) inside the pillow case. Stuff the excess fabric inside the pillow.

2. Cut velcro to size. Squeeze glue onto velcro and place on pillow opening to secure.

Downside: This is a temporary fix. Once you decide to wash the pillow case, the glue will loosen and come undone--essentially ruining all your work. Since this isn't our everyday couch I won’t be washing these as much. Then again my little toddler doesn’t care what her avocado fingers touch. Thankfully I have a big bottle of fabric glue and lots of velcro to last a few washes. I think it was well worth it and saved me $$ for now.

I also intend to add more colorful pillows to punch it up a bit. Although I love simple and neutral.

DIY|Canvas Photo Transfer

I rely too much on digital devices and online albums to store and display photos. Gone are the days of developing and creating photo albums or scrapbooks like I used to (in high school.) But recently decided our walls are looking a little bare so I went on walgreens.com and finally developed a bunch of photos. Now, what to do with them all? I bought a pack of canvases months ago at Ross for super cheap. I browsed lots of tutorials for a canvas photo transfer, some with printing on tissue paper which seemed like an unnecessary step. Then finally found this one and decided to modify it a tad. Although not perfect, these turned out better than I hoped and would make great gifts for loved ones. Below are the simple steps!

supplies

1. Gather all supplies.

2. Use an X-acto knife and a ruler to cut photo so there is still space between the photo and canvas.

3. Apply Mod Podge (I used matte) using a foam brush all over back of photo and all over the front. Set on wax paper to dry.

4. Paint around edges of canvas and any white spaces. You can also use scrapbook paper here, but I liked the clean look of acrylic paint. Use whatever color you like. I used grey and black.

5. I also used a sponge dipped in paint around the edges to create a look that was fool proof. This filled in any white space and covered up messy paint. I have more to transfer and plan on making a collage in our hallway with all my new canvas photos.
