    Hi Lauren!
    Thanks for the recipe, I’ve always wanted to try these. Just wondering, about how many wraps this makes? Will I need to get more than 1 head of the butter lettuce?

    Have a great time in Florida on your well deserved workcation!

    Love your recipes. Do you have a recipe for Chinese BBQ pork, like what is served in Chinese restaurants? And the sauces they serve with it?
