"Wrap Up" Lunch with NEW Dempster's Tortillas & CONTEST (~OVER~)!

Lunch Is Easy With Dempster's Tortillas - Ingredients for Crab Salad!
This year my husband and I had a rude awakening: we will have to make 4 school lunches, as we'll have 4 kids in school this year!  4 kids in school!  And next year, it will be 5 kids in school and 5 lunches to prepare for our hungry crew!  If only making lunch were as easy as an assembly line production.  

Unfortunately, my oldest son will not always eat traditional bread, my daughter won't eat tomatoes, my second son complains about any "smelly" foods, and luckily my third son will eat whatever you send your way--so watch your fingers!  So in the past, the challenge has been to find something that all children will happily eat for lunch.  How hard my husband and I have tried in the past to find just one common denominator!

However, my kids seem to agree on eating wraps for lunch, even if they don't all agree on how they're topped.  As tortilla wraps are a popular lunch choice for my kids, they don't often come home with their lunches uneaten at the end of the day!  No one wants a hungry, grumpy kid with low bloodsugar coming home after a long day of school!  Everyone knows that kid: grumble, grumble.  I think that NEW Dempster's Tortillas are a great idea for my kids' lunches, especially when making wraps!
These Crab Salad Wraps Made With Dempster's Tortillas Took Just Minutes to Make!
Dempster's Tortillas wraps are simple to make for lunch, and easily roll.  And contrary to popular belief, you can put "wet" toppings in a wrap without ruining the tortilla, as long as it's well-drained and you cocoon the sandwich meat or filling around it.  

There are so many easy Dempster's Tortillas wraps that my kids enjoy finding in their lunchbox: cream cheese with jam, luncheon meat with cheese, scrambled eggs and tomatoes (a breakfast wrap), egg salad with chives, tuna fish with relish, and the list goes on.  For lunches that are more perishable, we just put a small cooler pack in with the lunch so that the meal stays fresh.

Although my husband and I have to make "custom" lunch orders for the kids, it's not a hard feat with NEW Dempster's Tortillas wraps!  The older kids help out by assembling their own wrap, rolling it up, and slicing it in half with a butter knife.  I find that with a wrap the kids fill up less on bread, and it's easy to stuff the wrap with more protein and veggies.
My Kids Are Serious About Lunchtime!
MY EASY CRAB MEAT WRAP RECIPE!
This is my crab meat wrap that you see pictured on this blog.

-2 Dempster's Tortillas pieces of flatbread (I used 100% whole wheat)
-1 package (227g) of Crab Meat, sliced into long finger-width sections (or King Crab Flavoured Wild Alaska Pollock & Wild Pacific Whiting, like I used)
-2 green onions, chopped down to fit the length of the tortilla
-1 tomato, sliced in finger-sized pieces (I do not include the tomato seeds and save them for a different use)
-1/2 lemon, squeezed over the crab meat (put the crab meat in a small bowl to do this)
-*Optional: salt, pepper, seasonings or mayo...I did not use any of these ingredients in my recipe

Directions:
Lay out the 2 Dempster's Tortillas, and top with crab meat, green onions and tomato.  Do not overfill tortilla.  Roll tortilla end-over-end and serve with a side of fruit and veggies.  Enjoy!  (Recipe yields extra crab salad filling.)
