We had company over for dinner last night and I served one of my favorite summer recipes.I knew I had posted about this recipe before, so I searched the archives. Below is the the post I wrote two years ago when I made Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips for the first time.
Reveal: I am totally loving my new kitchen counters. They are so roomy I could do just about anything on them (get your head out of the gutter! I'm only talking laundry). In this house I no longer have the luxury of an extra room to dump laundry in. Gone are the days of unloading the dryer to the guest bed, shutting the door, and not going back until the troops started to complain that they didn't know where their laundry had gone. Now I bring the clean laundry to my counter top and fold it up. This way, laundry must be dealt with immediately, which may or may not make my laundry woes easier. The good news is that for now, it is all done. (Picture below)
Last night I found the best recipe for one of my all time favorite kitchen staples (after coffee of course): The Tortilla.
You can see the recipe here. I tweaked it a bit. I used grapes instead of kiwi, and I only added 1 Tbls. Brown sugar to the fruit, instead of all the other stuff because I didn't want it too sweet. I took flour tortillas, cut them into wedges, sprayed them generously with Pam spray and sprinkled them (before baking) with a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Wow!
And something else, because I am feeling particularly chatty today. I often look things up in a thesaurus, so when I write things on this blog that talk about the same thing, I can use new words so you think you are actually reading something different. I was trying to think of a catchy title so I looked up 'housewife' in the online thesaurus. What came up made me laugh!
