Stephanie's Lettuce Wraps

We got super lucky finding our nanny Stephanie...she's kind've a modern day Mary Poppins. She looks a little bit like her, has a beautiful singing voice and comes to our house with a bottomless bag of things that make Jake giggle. Oh and she can also cook! She made us these lettuce wraps and now its become one of our go-to dinner recipes.

I don't have a picture of the lettuce wraps
so here is s random photo of a
