Tortillas to die for

I had a terrible day today, well it started off good. Went to church, (that was the good part), but when I came home I was so tired I went to bed and slept until 4pm. Woke up and prepared dinner. We had burritos, a family favourite. I make a yummy lentil filling - this time I added a tin of tomatoes that had chilli in it, which gave the burrito mixture an extra zing and a batch of tortillas. No, I do not buy my tortillas, I make them from scratch. My family refuse to eat bought tortillas any more after tasting this wonderful recipe. Here is the link. You have to try these, they are fantastic and so easy to make. OK, they are a little time consuming, rolling them out - and I double the recipe. There are never any left after my ravenous mob get stuck into them, but on the odd occasion there are some left, they freeze really well, then a quick zap in the microwave and they are fresh once again. Oh, after I had my two tortillas, one big juicy peach and 4 yummy apricots, I felt terrible and went back to bed. My daughter woke me up at 10pm and asked if she should go to be yet. Hmmmm, let me think about that - YES! I got up at 11pm, checked my emails, and then went back to bed. Very unlike me. Back to work tomorrow - then I'll really have an excuse to be tired. OK, so no art as such, my creative effort for the day (CED) is my cooking of the burritos with a bit of a twist on my recipe. Oh, if you want the burrito mixture recipe, just say so and I'll post that too.

Ha! Ha! Sounds like you've turned sleeping into an art today! Yeah, I'd love your filling recipe too. I'm always looking for new rotations in our repetoire.

Maybe your body was telling you to get some rest! Thanks for the tortilla recipe. I would love to see your filling recipe as well or email it to me when you think about it. Back to work for me tomorrow, too. :(

Looks like it was really a good day!! Resting and napping all day---sounds good to me!! THanks for the tortilla link. I actually dont think I have a rolling pin (that is revealing about my baking skills!) I enjoyed reading about your day!
