Strange Cat

We have strange animals that live in my house. My dog loves to lick our cat. I don't mean in a friendly way. I mean our cat is receiving a regular bath. She is saturated when he is through. (I have posted a photo of our cat at the end of this post.) Occasionally, she will swipe at him but I think it is more for show since she doesn't move away. Why? Why does the cat let our dog do this to her? Why does he want to lick her in the first place?
Recently, I have changed work locations. Near my old job, I liked to order a wrap from Bay Wrap. So, I decided I would attempt to duplicate one of their wraps. My oldest daughter said I did a pretty good job. I made a chicken and rice meal the night before and made extra to make this easy to go lunch. Any Asian salad dressing is a great substitute for the sauce.
Asian chicken wrap
1/8 cup honey
1/8 cup soy sauce, low sodium works fine
1 Tbsp cup water.
1 clove garlic, minced fine
1 tsp ginger, minced fine
1 tsp olive oil
1 Tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
2 cup chicken, cooked and cut into strips
4 tortilla wraps
2 cup lettuce
1 cup sprouts
1 cup rice, cooked
1 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup scallions


  1. In a small bowl,combine the honey, soy sauce, water, garlic, ginger, olive oil, and lemon juice. Taste the sauce and adjust the flavors to taste. Add salt and pepper if desired. 
  2. Place the chicken in the sauce and set aside.
  3. Place the tortilla wraps on a plate. Cover the tortilla wraps with a damp paper towel. Microwave the wraps for about 10 seconds, just to warm them.
  4. Place one wrap in the center of a large piece or aluminum foil or wax paper. 
  5. Place 1/2 cup of lettuce and 1/4 cup sprouts evenly over the tortilla wrap.
  6. Onto of the lettuce, evenly spread out 1/2 cup of the chicken. 
  7. Over the chicken, sprinkle the cooked rice and almonds. 
  8. Top the rice with the scallions and sprinkle a little of the sauce evenly over the tortilla. Do not drench or the tortilla will become too soft.
  9. Fold up the sides of the tortilla and roll up the wrap tightly.
  10. Wrap the chicken wrap with the aluminum foil or wax paper.
  11. Store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
