“Missing in Action” . . . that best describes me lately.
If you need me, you can find me in the garden.
I’m probably muttering under my breath . . . but I’ll be there!
My fingertips are red or green at all times.
Red from picking Raspberries.
Green from podding peas.
I’m not a farm girl, and I really don’t enjoy it . . . but I do it. I do it, because I love my husband . . . who loves it!
Waa – Waa – Waa.
I’d much rather be making something with those Raspberries, than picking them.
This post, really isn’t much of a post. Trust me, it’s the best I can do. Most of you are probably already on this band wagon . . . the uncooked flour tortilla band wagon! Yes, I have made homemade soft flour tortilla’s before . . . but not very often. Did you know that you can buy FRESH UNCOOKED FLOUR TORTILLAS. Yes you can.
Take a look . . . see.
They puff up much more than already cooked flour tortillas, and they are really delish. In fact, they remind me of a crispy, thin crust pizza. I tried them on the grill and on a skillet on top of my stove. They were both really good, so I ate both of them! They puffed slightly higher on the grill, over very low flame. Medium heat seems to be the perfect temp if you are using a griddle instead.
Queso” is cheese in Spanish. And a quesadilla is a toasted tortilla with melted cheese inside. But in addition to cheese, you can put practically anything in a quesadilla.
As you can see, mine are open face. Next time I make these, I will spread some pizza sauce over the puffy tortilla before adding the cheese. Instant pizza! You can add a variety of meats, veggies & different cheese. So simple and so darn good!
I’m not promoting this brand, (Tortilla Land) but they sure are good. It’s the only brand I could find. They won’t last as long in your fridge as cooked Tortillas, so plan to make them soon after you purchase them. They are fresh without preservatives; all natural!
Grill: (lowest setting)
Skillet: (Medium heat)
My favorite is with Crisp Bacon & Pineapple.
I have a very delicious guest blogger post, almost ready for Rhodes Rolls + a giveaway! I will let you know when it’s up & running. In the meantime, between gardening and babies, I will try really hard to Get Off My Butt and BAKE!
My photographer daughter Chantri had a new little boy about one month ago. His name is Hudson and he is So precious. I was lucky enough to keep him for several nights while my poor daughter recovered from a wicked bout of mastitis! I love newborns, and I offered to keep him until he was two!
My other photographer daughter Danielle, had a baby boy just 4 days ago. He was born 6 weeks early and weighed 3.1 lbs. He is doing well though and we are praying that he will grow like a weed! His tiny little face is known as Tanner. Soon, I hope to fly far away to Virginia to “help” love him.
How blessed am I!
