Pinwheels on a stick

This summer, it's just me and Mr A on Tuesdays, so that has become Mom and A's day of fun!  This past week, we made our second trip to the beach.  I wanted to make pack a lunch a little more interesting than the sandwiches I had made the day before, so I grabbed some tortillas, leftover carnitas, ham, cheese, cream cheese, spinach, and cucumbers.  Unfortunately, my cream cheese did not stop the rolls from unraveling, so I stuck a skewer through them.  This was a big hit with Mr A, and turned out quite practical with his sandy hands that I couldn't quite get clean!

I was pleased that I could tuck in some fresh veggies, whereas yesterday's sandwiches only had ham and cheese.

Pinwheels on a stick
4 Tortillas
2 T cream cheese, softened
1/4 c carnitas
2 deli slices of ham
1/3 seedless cucumber, julienned
1 slice cheddar cheese, julienned
1 c baby spinach

2 bamboo skewers

1. Warm tortilla until soft and pliable.
2. Spread cream cheese on half of the tortilla.
3. Layer meats, veggies, and cheese on the non- cream cheese half.
4. Roll up tortilla, starting with non-cream cheese half.  The cream cheese should be the "glue" to hold the roll together.
5. Cut tortilla into 3-4 pieces.  Stick skewer through each pinwheel.


Check out the crab in the bottom left hand corner that we found crawling on the beach!
