Saturday's Greek Pinwheels - $6.21

Greek because of the Feta Cheese and black olives - these pinwheels are an absolute delight! They are healthy, they are pretty, and you an serve them as a luncheon salad accompanyment, an appetizer, or a meal! I've eaten these so many times over the past few years - they do not get old to me!

Greek Pinwheels
1/2 cup reduced fat cream cheese, softened .50
1/2 tsp dried oregano .05
1/2 cup feta cheese .99
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped finely .99
1/4 cup finely chopped black olives (drained well!).30
4 whole wheat tortillas (the healthy, high fiber, expensive ones are preferred - the cheap flour ones will sub) .40
8 ounces sliced turkey breast .99
2 cups fresh spinach leaves $1.99

In a mixing bowl, flex your muscles in your arms as you combine the cream cheese, spices, feta and black olives.
Evenly spread 1/4 of the mixture over each of the four tortillas
top each tortilla with 1/4 of the meat, then finally the spinach.
Roll up tightly, then cover with plastic wrap, refrigerate, and wait (patiently) for them to become firm enough to slice (if desired, you don't have to wait if you're only doin' this for yourself and you don't want to wait - just half and eat!)
Upon firming up in refrigerator (15 to 30 minutes), slice into six or so pieces, plate beautifully, and endulge.
