a little something raw

upon request i am sharing the beloved tortilla recipe.  i make these regularly.  they are my bread.  i enjoy them with peanut butter and honey.  i wrap them around salad.  cover them with pesto.  stuff them with sprouts.  i enjoy sitting on my steps in the sun and having a huge salad with tortillas. (even in the winter!)  you can try to picture me with my green pooffie coat, half-way laced up mukluks, and my red hat, eating a tortilla.

these tortillas are very simple to make.  you can play and tweak the recipe to your own liking.  mark, the father of my children, played around and perfected this one.  i have been enjoying them ever since.

i love sharing food.  giving food away.  bartering food for childcare.  eating food with other people.  eating food outside.  i often think of a quote by the Buddha and it goes something like this… if you knew what i knew you wouldn’t go a meal without sharing.  i don’t yet know what he knows.  yet i still try to share as much as i can.
