I have this very odd sensation on my butt.
I can't quite place it.
It's sitting on the chair by my computer!
It's been a while.
I'm slowly coming by to visit and catch up! I hope you are all well and enjoying the clean(ish) slate of a New Year.
And speaking of clean slates, I wanted to tell you a little tip I learned about tortillas.
You don't see that as a natural segue in this post? Slate? Tortillas?
Yeah, I see your point. That was a bit of a stretch.
Obviously it's not only my desk chair that has fallen into disuse during my limited computer time.
You know how you take tortillas and put them in the oven to crisp them?
Or fry them on top of the stove in a little vegetable oil?
Or cook them right on your gas burner to char them?
Or lay them on the flat top burner of your stove and...
WAIT! WAIT! Don't do that last one! It's a bad, bad, bad idea.
...do you know you can put a tortilla in the toaster and it works GREAT!?!
If you just need a few for a meal and don't want to fire up the big oven and/or deal with the whole pan/charring mess, this little tip works like a charm.
If your tortillas are super thin, you can put two together in the slot.
You can see them puff up and then get toasted into yummy little blisters of flavor.
They taste hot and fresh and yummy and they work great for a quick sandwich or as an addition to a meal.
Try it and let me know what you think.
If you're Empty Nesters like Mr. Jenny and me, it's a simple way to deal with the small quantities required for mealtimes.
I'm a genius.
And... you're welcome.
I hope you enjoy getting toasted in the New Year!
And I'm hoping to be back on a more regular basis.
I'm thinking sitting at my desk chair might constitute exercise of some kind.
And I'm all for that in the New Year, too!
