First off, thanks for all those who commented on my last post. Many of you made me laugh so hard I nearly peed.
As you may remember, I was on call this week for jury duty and sure enough, I was called in to go to court today (well, yesterday by the time you read this….you know what I mean!).
I know its “my duty” to serve on a trial, even a juicy one. But frankly I’m not interested. I know, I’m mean. Jury duty is a whole lot of sitting around doing jack shit while you wait for someone to tell you what to do next. I’m not excited, but maybe I’ll regurgitate a good post out of it. stay tuned!
But I have a feeling I will be selected because I’m somewhat sane. This may sound lame but, any ideas on what I could say to get out of being selected?
What a thrilling post, right? Like I said, I’ll have something juicy from the courthouse tomorrow. And since we all love food, heres a homemade tortilla recipe.
- 2 cups flour all purpose or corn flour for a gluten free version
- 1 cup warm milk of choice
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbs oil
Combine flour, baking powder, oil and salt in medium bowl. While slow adding warm milk mix until mixture starts to pull away from the edge of the bowel. Keep adding enough warm milk until the dough reaches pizza dough-like consistency.
Turn dough out on to floured surface. Knead dough for about 90 seconds. Place kneaded dough in to clean medium size bowl and cover with damp cloth. Allow dough to rest 20 minutes. This is a must! The dough needs this time to rest and be workable. Remove dough from bowl and separate in to two pieces. Roll the two pieces of dough in to a snake like tube 6′ to7″ long, one inch in diameter. Cut in to five pieces. Roll pieces in to balls and place on plate not touching each other or they will stick together. Cover dough balls with damp cloth and allow to rest 10 minutes, again this is a must! Remove dough balls one at a time. Place dough ball on floured surface and press down. With floured rolling pin roll from center out rolling in all directions.
