homemade flour tortillas

Spent Saturday morning doing some bread baking. Made our 4 loaves of bread for the week, and also made 8 pizza shells and a dozen sub buns. On top of that we made some pita wraps, also called flour tortillas. Super easy to make. The hardest part is rolling them out flat. So we made a video where the first half simply shows me rolling them. The trick is to keep dusting the shell, and flipping and moving it while making it thinner.

pita shells first time making them

Made some of these pita shells for supper after seeing a commercial for A&W’s Chicken Bacon Wrap Sandwich. Never made the shells before. Super simple recipe and they bake on the stove top in a frying pan 60 sec one side, 30 sec on the other. The shells with the darker spots had the best flavor so I’ll be sure to darken them some more next time I make them.

Found potato with nail in it

Preparing supper tonight. It was difficult to cut through the first potato. Literally had to crack open the potato to see why. A small finishing nail embedded in the potato. Purchased from Altantic Superstore in Antigonish Nova Scotia some time either late April or early May. Trying to narrow down the time frame.
