Spicy Chicken Lettuce Wraps

I like having lighter dinners on Monday because after a weekend with Trevor, whose main course is generally always ice cream and more ice cream, I need something healthy.

So, this dinner was perfect for tonight. I used my pantry and fridge staples, mixed them with some meat I had in the freezer and plopped them in some lettuce leaves from the garden. I didn’t even have to leave the house (which is a win in my eyes!) in the pouring rain (double win!)!

Dinner in 15 – ta-da!
