Surviving Dinner – Wraps, Chips, & Fruit

Lots of recipes claim they can be cooked in 20 minutes or less.  Some nights are so busy, even that’s too long.  “Surviving Dinner” is a series that is not about good wifeing, mothering, or cooking.  It’s about surviving.  It’s for those nights when you’re tempted to write “fast food” on the menu, but cooking at home will save you a few dollars, a few hundred calories, and loads of mommy-guilt.  Recipes found here can be cooked quickly and have minimal prep and clean-up.  Some may require a little pre-planning, but many won’t.

I often forget that dinner doesn’t always have to be hot – or even cooked.  Sandwiches are a great fast option for dinner, especially during hot summer days when you might not want to turn on your stove.  I try to make the sandwiches a little more interesting if we’re having them for dinner and upgrade the side dishes from the basic potato chip (Tim’s Cascades, anyone?).  🙂

Survival Menu:

  • Sandwich Wraps
  • Chips
  • Sliced Fruit



  • tortillas
  • lunch meat
  • cheese
  • lettuce/tomato/red onion/other sandwich veggies
  • dressing (optional)
  • chips
  • fruit

I’ll spare you the assembly instructions because I’m fairly confident everyone can figure this out.  Today’s post is more of a menu suggestion than recipe, I guess.  🙂
