Day #33, #15 Veggies in a Blanket

I'm switching back to the lunch menu today- Fridays are far too busy for me to order a dinner entree and enjoy it. The #15 was next on the list of sandwiches, and it was perfect for a quick meal.

The #15 is "Veggies in a Blanket". There is no history to the name behind this sandwich- it's pretty self explanatory. It's made with leaf lettuce, sweet red onion, tomatoes, spinach, artichoke hearts, scallion cream cheese, and cucumbers in a whole wheat Lawash wrap. Lawash wraps were first made in Pontiac, MI, and later the company moved to Dearborn, MI. I love our wraps, and I'm a firm believer that any of our sandwiches can be made into a wrap-if you haven't tried it, you should. These whole wheat wraps are amazing.

This sandwich was perfect for being on the run. It was easy to eat and I enjoyed feeling healthy with this choice. The scallion cream cheese is an interesting addition, but it went really well with the vegetables and the whole wheat wrap. It kind of reminded me of a vegetable dip mixed in the wrap with all the vegetables. I also liked the unusual addition of the artichoke hearts, they added a lot of extra flavor to the sandwich and kept it from being boring.
I think this is the first vegetarian sandwich that I have blogged about so far, and it's a very easy one to like. There's nothing scary or intimidating about it- just vegetables and cream cheese. Simple and delicious.
