Asian Beef Wraps

6 spinach tortillas
roast beef thinly sliced
cucumber, thinly sliced into sticks
mayonnaise
1 bag instant rice, cooked
soy sauce
green onions, thinly sliced

Cook the instant rice according to package. Add some soy sauce, about 1 or 2 tbsps, depending on your taste. Add the green onions and mix well.Spread mayonnaise on a tortilla.Top with some of the rice mixture. What I do is score the rice into equal sections so that every wrap has the same amount.Layer 3 slices of roast beef and then some cucumber sticks. Fold burrito style. Repeat with remaining tortillas!

Sounds delicious...but what were you doing up at 4:00 am? Thats what time paul left this morning and I can never go back to sleep after he leaves. I hope for your sake, the baby comes soon. I know you are so ready for it.

Much love
