How is it that one could eat flour tortillas for over 40 years and never once think to make them with peanut butter and jelly?

Here's to the things kids can teach you!

My young friends Piper (4), Alden (7), and Reilly (9) recently gave me a lesson in one of their favorite foods - a "wrap". First they explained what a "wrap" is - basically a flour tortilla, with good stuff inside, tucked in the edges and rolled up to make it easy to eat.

In my neck of the woods we would pack it full with a lot of rice, beans, and salsa and call it a burrito. But as a flour tortilla is nothing more than a bit of flour and water (and some baking powder, salt, and shortening or lard) one could easily use it as a bread substitute.

Practically anything that could go in a sandwich could be wrapped up in a flour tortilla. The favorite wraps for these young friends of mine? Two actually. One obvious, the peanut butter and jelly wrap. The second not so obvious, but believe me, extremely good - cream cheese, thinly sliced ham, and carrots.

Do you have a favorite kid-friendly wrap? Please let us know in the comments.
