Sunday and Monday sweet chili salmon quinoa wraps

Mmm… sweet chili salmon. I went to work this morning after a weekend incubating a lurgy and after an hour and a half decided it would be best to come home rather than infect others.

The good thing about my workplace is we have access to work e-mail using secure IT systems from home. I was able to keep up with things that were happening at work and not infect others.

I’d even made lunch for today

This afternoon was as gloomy as how I felt

Last night and tonight I continued the wrap theme and incorporated some quinoa and used sweet chili salmon as my protein.
