tortillas

This would be the next post in which I vilify Joe (for real this time).
Are you tired of over-priced tortillas at the grocery store?  Wish there were a cheaper way to make your favorite burritos and quesadillas?  Then you need..... a KITCHEN HELPER!

Patrick and I got very ambitious one afternoon and had a GREAT time rolling our own tortillas.  Nice and thin, as you can see in the video. "Don't click" meant "don't take the picture yet," he didn't know I was videoing.  I thought the tortillas turned out SO WELL, especially for a 1st attempt, so I made one into a quesadilla and had Joe try a slice.  Granted, he was feeling wretched that day with a stomachache, so it probably (definitely) wasn't the best timing for a taste-test, but to all our effort he said, "It's alright. It doesn't taste very Mexican.  But that's okay because you're not mexican."  Uhhhh.... thanks.  I'll take that slice of cheesy quesadilla BACK, thankyouverymuch. Then I went to the store for Saltines and Gatorade and he appreciated that MUCH more.  I made one into a burrito for his lunch this week and heard no complaints (as a home-makin' tortilla goddess shouldn't), so I think it's a venture we'll definitely try again, especially with cabin fever months fast approaching.

Wow, you guys are ambitious! I'm not surprised, just impressed. I don't love paying for tortillas, but I'm DEFINITELY too lazy to make them!

In Joe's defense, you're not Mexican :)

So I went to the store yesterday and asked an employee where the tortillas were and looked at me like I was crazy and said "you mean like wraps?" Then he pointed me towards the pita bread. I'm not in the west anymore!! Maybe I'll need your recipe. :-)
