Coop website: Flour...4 1kg packages for 2 chf
me: I use flour
website: Thank you ...we will deliver tomorrow
me: WTF...what am I going to do with 8 bags of flour.... never shop online at 3am while you're feeding the baby..
Normally this wouldn't be a problem. However living here is severely taxing my organizational skills and it's more of a Jenga game with a lot of things (working on it though!)
So today, my oldest son helped me make tortillas. It was lots of fun. (He slept through the hard part so probably had more fun than me). It was nice. I remember long ago to when I was little and I would help my mom make tortillas. They were wonderful! (This was back when she fried them afterwards...drool.....She's stopped now - which is good and sad at the same time). I remember waiting for those tortillas to come off the stove and hoping they wouldn't be nice and round. Those odd square shaped ones had to be eaten right away. And if they were all round, well then, mom would give us one to try to make sure they were ok :-) I miss living near my mom, but the visits we share are all the more special now that we don't get to spend a lot of time together. And having my own kids and baking what my mom and I used to make is great as well!
What you need: (makes about 18 tortillas)
1 heaping tsp of salt
1 tsp baking powder
4 even Tbsp shortening (I used butter)
1 1/4 cups very warm water
I usually will roll a tortilla when I put the first one in, and when I'm done rolling I flip it - seems to be about the right time.
Here is my finished stack...now to see if they will last to taco night!
