Thai Chicken Wrap

My children argue like any typical siblings. One reason they argue is my son likes to tell us lots of facts. My daughter likes to correct her brother as an older sister will do. Since my son is confident in his facts, I am the fact checker. Normally, I know the answers which makes it easier for me but when I don't I will look it up. So, I had to look up whether penguins eat squids or not. I have never paid much attention to the diet of penguins. I am too busy worrying about my children's diets. Well, my son was right (which he normally is 90% of the time but his sister does catch him on other the 10%). This was our discussion while we ate these Thai Chicken Wraps. They are really good and fast to assemble. My son made the sauce for us. My daughter prepped the lettuce. It was a nice way to prepare lunch
