Hello lower 48!

Today was another filled day of planning, pool-training and orientation… oh, and getting tested for TB -the fun just DOES NOT stop!

But we did get to do a fun run for the local food bank – they said our entry fee was a canned food, but the runner’s high was free! 🙂

But more exciting information – well, for you foodies I guess 😛 We have family style supper every night (originally started to save money, but it’s also a great way for us to get to know each other and unwind after working all day!)

ANYWHO’s – we take turns making dinner with our bunk-mate and it has been an awesome way to learn new recipes (especially vegetarian ones, coming from a farm family- we just don’t do that all that often ever!)

So my partner and I took our turn tonight and this is what we made…






That would be cornbread, and lettuce wraps!

For the lettuce wraps, we made a Southwest Bean-Salsa Filling

A delicious, high fiber filling that goes great on top of salad, in a lettuce or tortilla wrap!



  1. Add all ingredients to a crock pot set on low and cook for 2 hours
  2. Serve warm in lettuce cups, over salad greens, in a tortilla, a-top rice, the opportunities are ENDLESS!
