      Oh i love these but that is way too many ingredients for me. it’ll probably cost more to buy the ingredients than the wraps. have you tried Pei Wei (PF Changs little brother 🙂 it’s owned by them but cheaper and you pay first).

      they have these too and they are sooo good. it’s nice to know whats actually in them!

      Yeh, I thought there were a lot of ingredients too, but many of them are repeated. Plus a lot of the ingredients are things like salt, pepper, cornstarch, water, oil – things we would already have. I think this recipe would be good if you can get a really good deal on some veggies.

      I haven’t tried Pei Wei, but a friend of mine loves Pei Wei & pf chang’s! if you join pf changs’ online club they will send you coupons and stuff too!
