Roll-ups

We've been super busy the past few weeks.  Last weekend we went out of town (spur of the moment type trip) to Nebraska, then back home.  Started the week with dentist appointments, then an orchestra concert, ice cream social, and this weekend we went to an air show in Missouri.  It's all been good, but now I am ready for an easy quick meal...I guess you can call it that ;)

Everyone loves roll-ups in our house.  I tend to make a variety because everyone loves them so much.  They are super simple to make and really you can put whatever you want inside.  That is the beauty of the roll-up :)

Get creative!  Put whatever you like inside and enjoy!  We even do banana, peanut butter, and a drizzle of honey for a nice sweet treat.  The combinations are endless.
