Arugula and Balsamic Wrap

*Camera Update: I bought a camera on ebay yesterday. It’s a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3-k that was previously owned but still in great shape. Until it arrives I am using an ancient digital camera. John also bought a Canon 5D today (it’s like camera fever over here) and I can’t wait to see how that one works out.

Lunch today was a tasty wrap with arugula and capers with a balsamic vinegar glaze. For an easy protein I used a frozen veggie burger (shame on me, I know). In the future, I would like to experiment with making veggie burgers from scratch.  For the wrap, I like using the veggie burger with grains, veggies, and cheese better than the soy patty type.
