Italian Chicken Wraps and Chocolate Cake

Quick and Easy!
Italian Chicken Wraps
from Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet
1 package (16 oz) frozen stir-fry vegetable blend
2 packages (12 oz) ready to use grilled chicken breast strips (I just used 3 chicken breast that I grilled on the George Foreman and cut up)
1/2 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
6 flour tortillas
In a large saucepan, cook the vegetables according to package directions; drain. Stir in the chicken, salad dressing and cheese. Simmer, uncovered for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Spoon about 3/4 cup down the center of each tortilla, roll up tightly.

This is the chocolate cake recipe I used to make my mom's birthday cake. The icing is put on the cake while it is still warm, so it kind of melts into the cake, so good! This recipe is from my grandma and when I made the cake I even used the card written out in her sweet handwriting.
