And The P.W's Tortilla roll ups!

The Pioneer Woman's tortilla roll ups ( I used roast beef)


  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Green Onions Or Chives
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Parsley
  • 8 whole Basil Leaves, Chopped (or Chiffonade)
  •  Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 6 whole Taco Sized Flour Tortillas
  • 1/2 pound Shaved Turkey
  • 3 whole Carrots, Peeled And Julienned
  • 1 whole Cucumber, Seeds Scraped Out And Julienned
  • 3 leaves Green Leaf Lettuce, Spine Removed
  • 2 whole Avocados, Sliced

Preparation Instructions

Make the herbed cream cheese by combining the softened cream cheese with the chives, parsley, basil, salt and pepper, and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Spread cream cheese in a thin layer over the tortillas. Lay ingredients down the middle of the tortilla: for the turkey rollup, use turkey, carrots, and cucumber. For a "salad" rollup, use lettuce, carrots, cucumber, and avocado. Let the veggies extend past the edges on either side.
Roll up the tortillas as tightly as they'll go, then wrap each rollup in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
To slice, cut each rollup exactly in half, then line up the two halves and cut them in half again. Stand the end pieces up so that the veggies stick out the top.
Happy stamping or eating!!
Love, Julie

My Stampin Space!

Once a year I look around my space and realize that it has gotten a bit out of control!
I hate clutter, yet I can acquire piles of "I'll do this later" that turns into "never done!"
I spent Labor Day weekend going through old convention swaps and drawers. I feel lighter and more organized!!
Here are the pictures:


                            Too much time spent here!! The Computer a time toilet!!!

                                        Where I cut paper and prep for classes (counter height)

Also known as the "candy shop" I keep all my buttons, ribbons, etc. here

My punch /inspiration wall leading to my annex

The annex where I keep all my "For Sale" items
                                                             My "For Sale"Card tower!!
                                         I hope you like the tour!  I love seeing stamping spaces!!
