- Wow I am running so late today……….but I did have a wonderful opportunity to sleep in which is a rare occasion. Today the Viking and I are going to finish up some of our projects in the garden, I think he even has a “water focal point project” he is working on. I have loads of laundry to do and I am ready to get my life in order again after these last two weeks where Technology and my job has taken over my life.
- So this past week my husband and I made corn tortillas for the first time and I am not going to lie to all of you while we did eat them they were less than amazing. I am not going to share our recipe as we have not quite gotten the wrinkles ironed out yet so to speak. I wanted to learn this skill because you can make a ton of them and eat them right out of the fridge with sandwiches but ours turned out less than desirable because they were too greasy.
- I found out from friends on some of my favorite “Frugality” message boards like Frugal Families that you really need to invest in a good tortilla press and getting the balance of corn flour to water is important too. The reason I am going to keep attempting to make these is because they are not made with preservatives, and or chemicals and they are an unprocessed food staple and a great skill to have. Once you master this you can even make your own homemade tortilla chips. We will be trying these again soon!
