Hello Foodie Friends

Ahhh....I just love this Summer heat! I missed lots of the good Summer weather last year and am determined to make the most of it this time! It just goes by sooooooooo quickly. Getting ready for a big Father's Day beach weekend too and bringing some of these grab and go nibblers but cut up smaller nibbler sizes (a.k.a. Pinwheels) for a quickie from the cooler prior to the evening grill-out. Grilling is great but when you need a quick something in-between and kids love these too!

Like I always say customize to your own liking by swapping in /out your favorites, use the flavored tortillas or different flavored cream cheeses.

1 Bag flour tortillas or sandwich wraps (plain or flavored)
1 lg Bar of softened cream cheese
Roast beef sliced thin
Ham sliced thin
Turkey sliced thin
Colby Jack cheese, sliced thin
Lettuce shredded thin strips
Garlic powder
Sliced tomatoes very thin

Use the back of a spatula and cover each tortilla with a thin layer of cream cheese. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Use half of the tortilla: to layer meats, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes. Then roll up tortilla with cream cheese side rolled up last so it will seal as if using glue. Cut in 1 inch pieces and serve.

Yield: 8-10 Servings

SANDWICH BITS: If you're making grilled sandwiches, follow these quick tips to keep em' easy-to-eat:

* Use firm bread that won't disintegrate when you pile on the ingredients.

* Slice vegetables, meats and cheeses evenly and on the thin side so that they stack up well.

* For skillet sandwiches, press the sandwich down in the skillet to keep it compact and to ensure that the cheese melts evenly. If the sandwich is not too tall, you can push it down with your hand; if it's bulky, weight it down with a small skillet or a large onion or potato.

* Once the sandwich is made, don't mess it up when you cut it. Use a serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion. Don't push down; let the knife do the work.
