Caveman Cuisine: Cool Roast Beef Lettuce Wraps

Simply packing a sandwich for lunch doesn't work for while eating like a caveman, but no worries cave-friends!  These Cool Roast Beef Lettuce Wraps are a delicious combination of rare roast beef, creamy avocado, crunchy cucumbers, and spicy curry seasoning all wrapped up in butter-leaf lettuce.

4 medium leaves lettuce (butter-leaf is my favorite, but romaine, green leaf, and others would work as well)
3oz (4-6 slices) of Boar's Head Natural Roast Beef
6-7 slices of cucumber
1/4 of a medium tomato (sliced thin)
Curry seasoning (salt free preferably)
1/4 Haas avocado (mashed)

To absorb excess moisture, and to keep your lunch tidy (important for fitting in with non-cave people), lay a paper towel on a square of aluminum foil (foil should be slightly larger than the paper towel).  Lay the four lettuce leaves onto the paper towel so that the edges overlap.  Lay the roast beef slices along the length of lettuce leaves.  Smear the smashed avocado onto the roast beef and add the cucumber and tomato slices.  Dust with curry seasoning.  Using the paper towel to help keep everything together, fold the outer edges of the lettuce over and roll into a "burrito".  Wrap the whole thing tightly in the aluminum foil and twist the ends to seal.
