Is That A Stack of Tortillas on Your Counter, Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?

Both, really. This morning, I cobbled together a whole wheat flax meal recipe for tortillas. And like any good scientist, I documented the experiement.

After combining all of the ingredients, and finding myself with a slab o' dough, I divided it into 8 individual balls.















And then rolled them out into the shape and thickness of a tortilla:















Those suckers were then slid into a hot, dry griddle. Here's side one. When it starts to bubble, then it's flipped onto the other side:





























Resulting in a stack of eight lurvely tortillas!















I can now live off the store bought tortilla grid! What? Yeah, I don't know what I'm talking about either.

Oh my god. I have GOT to stop READING your BLOG before BREAKFAST. It makes me hungry. I can't stop thinking about how great that chocolate cinnamon peanut butter would taste on those whole wheat tortillas. Damn you, food temptress! Damn you!

I mean, uh . . . how was your weekend?

Oh, DAMN! I'm going to have to try the Choc-Cin PB on one now.

PS: My weekend was good, even though I didn't buy a new car.

PS2: I'm going to have to make you a new batch of my super-chocolatey Chocolate Cinnamon Peanut Butter. Because I need to you try it and tell me how it compares to the previous batch!

Bring it on, my friend! Taste tests help me write better.
