Asian lettuce wraps

April 10, 2019

I asked my sister Shana, "what are some of your favorite dishes that I make for you?"  One of them was the Asian lettuce wraps, full of flavor, easy to make and healthy.  In searching for a dish to make for my boss that just had a little baby girl, I thought these would be delicious, healthy and easy to reheat.  Check out my recipe.....
