Since we've moved to Redlands, it's been an amazing culinary adventure in some aspects, and a total pain in the ass in other aspects. While we've been able to try a lot of new things, it's been a challenge to find cheap/quick/easy food when we're busy. One place we have found is a place called Citrus Deli, which happens to be right across the street from our apartment complex. I'll admit, I've only ever had one item from their menu: the Chicken Caesar Wrap. And while I know that this is super boring and I'm a little embarrassed to admit it, I can't help myself. It is just...so...good. I've had many chicken caesar wraps, and theirs is by far the best. At $5, it's also a really good size. However, at $5, I can't have it for lunch three times a week like I've been doing, because $15 a week adds up. So I decided to create my own! This ended up costing me just around $3 per wrap, AND I can be lazy and don't have to leave the house to get it!
