We like to be warm. Or simply: It's a wrap!

November 1, 2010 - Taste Buds
THE BUDS have taken on a new endeavor and we think you are going to be as thrilled as us. We have started the process of blossoming on to new topics for our weekly column and on Thursday we will unveil our newest review starting with some winter fashion ideas, namely boots and scarves.

Don't fret. We will only be doing the "special" topics once each month so you foodies-fans will still get plenty of the Buds and their voyages around the valley to find only the best restaurants with the best menus!

Oh, well, back to our new plans. Our "millions" of readers know that both the Buds love boots but we bet you didn't realize how much we like to keep things under wrap so we will start out by looking at neck wear and shoulder wraps, or shawls as our grannies called them.

Bud Em loves the furry, fluffy, fun-loving scarves that are available out there in today's market. She wraps them around her perfect little neck with much glee and enthusiasm.

Bud Kay is a little more cautious. She has had one of those suckers wrapped to tightly around her head supporter on more than one occasion. She opts for the thinner variety which gives her a chance for escape!

But, we are not going to share all of our secrets. Nope! You are just going to need to remain calm and patiently wait for more information in "Ticket" which will appear in the Thursday, Nov. 4 edition of The Times Leader. That is the spot where you will learn about our trek into boot shopping along with our secrets to "wrapping" the perfect cold weather scarf.

Trust us, it will be worth the wait.

But in the meantime, we are going to share a recipe for a different kind of wrap...turkey wraps, just in time for the fast approaching Thanksgiving holiday! These light and tasty wraps are great for lunch, or slice them smaller and they make wonderful party appetizers or great little after-school snacks.

Turkey Wraps Prep Time: 20 Min Ready In: 20 Min Yield 6 wraps

Ingredients: 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese with chives 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 6 (8-inch) whole wheat tortillas 1 1/2 cups finely shredded iceberg lettuce 12 slices thinly sliced deli turkey or you may use left over turkey 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese 1 large tomato, seeded and diced 1 large avocado, sliced 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions 1. Mix together the cream cheese and Dijon mustard until smooth. Spread each tortilla with about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture, spreading to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the tortillas. 2. Arrange about 1/4 cup of shredded lettuce on each tortilla, and press the lettuce down into the cream cheese mixture. Place 2 turkey slices per tortilla over the lettuce, and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of shredded Swiss cheese. Top each tortilla evenly with tomato, avocado slices, and crumbled bacon. 3. Roll each tortilla up tightly, and cut in half across the middle with a slightly diagonal cut.
