We have had numerous wraps for lunch lately, as I am always stocked with flour tortillas. Seriously, you can make any sandwich combination and use a tortilla. I was hankering for a BLT sandwich, but my kids had used the last of the loaf of bread the day before on peanut butter sandwiches… but hey, I had flour tortillas, avocados and lemons. I decided to give it a go and really, this BLT wrap was so yummy! And bonus, my kids loved it.

I have a new-found love of avocado and each time I head to the grocery store, I am buying four or five at a time. I love the creaminess of avocados. They are just so refreshing!

BLT wraps with easy homemade guacamole recipe. Bacon, lettuce and tomato wraps.

For the easy chunky homemade guacamole, I used one avocado, the juice from one lemon, two tablespoons of sour cream and a little salt and pepper to taste.

Using a spoon, mash and mix everything together. I like mine chunky, and really, the avocado is so creamy, the chunks melt in your mouth.

How to make BLT Wraps

For the wrap, cook a few slices of bacon and cut into chunks or crumble. Slice fresh tomato and cut up a bit of lettuce. I love lettuce with color and texture, so I purchased a small package called Artisan Lettuce I got at the grocery.

Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie Recipe

My Grandma Chunkie made the best Chocolate Pie! With only 5 ingredients, this rich chocolate pie recipe is a quick and easy dessert everyone loves!

Grandma's Chocolate Pie recipe. With only 5 ingredients, this rich chocolate pie recipe is a quick and easy dessert.

Grandma Chunkie’s Chocolate Pie Recipe

This chocolate pie recipe is our family tradition thanks to my fun Great-Grandma Chunkie! I remember Grandma Chunkie as a fun little spit fire with pink tinted hair and always wearing a cute apron. I guess she was heavy as a child and that’s where the name came from. All my great-aunts and uncles had nicknames. One was even called Aunt No No.

I loved going to Grandma Chunkie’s house, because she was always baking something tasty. She grew up working in her family’s restaurant in Tulsa. She also let me play with all her jewelry (clip on earrings!) and make-up. I loved hearing stories of her travels and times when she dated a pro-wrestler… the kind like you see now on the WWF! Ha.

She would tell me crazy stories, like how you had to be careful traveling back when she was a girl because Indians would kidnap you. Or the time she and her brother ran away when they were really little. They tied themselves together so they wouldn’t get lost (or kidnapped by Indians) on the train. Who knows what was the truth? Ha!

Born in 1908 as Lily Maybell, Grandma Chunkie later changed her name to Lillian.

Grandma Chunkie was also a sister of Christ! When I would go on ski trips, she would pray on a cloth and make me put it in my pocket to keep me safe:-) In college, I would get these little prayer cloths in the mail every now and then.

This photo of Grandma Chunkie is probably from the 1940’s. I think she is alive and well in my daughter! I see a lot of Grandma Chunkie in my own little spit fire.

 

The best Chocolate Pie

Grandma Chunkie made THE best pies! Usually for our Thanksgiving dinners, we would have about three pumpkin pies along with banana, lemon and chocolate. I never liked pumpkin pie, so she always made me my own mini chocolate pie. A Thanksgiving tradition, I started with my kids. I’ve posted this recipe before, but in case you missed it, here it is again. Enjoy!!
