One would presume I’d be concocting the perfect Super Bowl party menu, and furiously photographing the food for this blog post, but alas, the closest I ever came to watching the Super Bowl was a call back for a Budweiser commercial culminating from my first audition when I moved back to Los Angeles in January 1998.

Jewels by Lori Dorn

In fact, one of my ex husband’s finer attributes, as far as I was concerned, was that he detested American football as much as I did. Now soccer? Give me a couple World Cup tickets to the players box (that actually did

instantaneously I would become the most popular gal in London when I had an extra World Cup ticket to share. I had my pick of more suitors than even I could contend with. Come to think of it…

    SO colourful – as always! It looks succulent! With this recipe, I will finally get my husband to eat veggies on a wrap! As usual, your photos are beautiful and I couldn’t agree more about American football… boring and not my thing! Premier League tickets though… that’s another story!

    I love tortilla wraps, especially the whole grain ones or the ones with dried tomato or spinach ones. I don’t know why I don’t make them for myself more often, but now that I’ve been prodded, I will make a point of buying some wraps and use up left over chicken in them. I’m afraid I’m never going to be much of a red meat gal, but chicken, fish, tofu are all good substitutes, right?

    Use the same marinade with chicken, Ruthee – it is equally as good! I haven’t tried it yet with tofu, so if you do it – let me know how it comes out.
