I'm going on a PICNIC, and I'm bringing...

...Turkey & Pear Wraps w/ Curried Aioli.

Yup, it's that time of year again. PICNIC TIME...and time to play the Picnic Game w/ Louise at Months of Edible Celebrations!  Plus, our theme this coming week at IHCC is Picnic Basket,so... bonus! 

I'll start by giving you the recipe I used for these killer wraps that I'm packing for my picnics all week long. OH! And fair'll have some major breath after eating these.  But they're soooo worth it!  Especially if you use really good turkey.  The pungeant heat of the aioli is cooled by the slices of pear and lettuce.  The onion adds more punch and the turkey rounds it out perfectly.  I definitely hope you take one of these wraps at the picnic.

Turkey & Pear Wrap w/ Curried Aioli
from Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express
Mix half a cup of mayonnaise (or plain yogurt) with some minced garlic and about a tsp. of curry powder.  Lightly toast flour tortillas in a skillet for ~20 seconds per side.  Spread the aioli on the tortillas; evenly layer a lettuce leaf, a thin slice of red onion, thinly sliced pears, and some turkey on top.  Roll the tortillas tightly, cut them on the bias, and serve.
Now, for the Picnic play the picnic game, you start with letter A and list what you're bringing that starts with an A, then move on to B, and so on.  Each blogger coming to the picnic picks a letter and then gathers everybody's contributions in one place!  Let's begin...
