This was one of those "git 'er done" weekends. Chuck and I are like bears. Like muskrats. We can sense the aging of the season and it makes us feel compelled to prepare and stock up. The forecast tomorrow is for rain and the following day for snow. I have an uneasy feeling that our Indian Summer is over.
I took my creaky, achy self into the house at the end of the day, where my crock pot had been making a delicious Brazilian stew. Nate surprised me with "Mom! I need to make tortillas! It's a school project! Due tomorrow!" Add more exclamation points if you like. There were plenty. [Deep sigh]. "OK, Nate. Look up a recipe and hope that we have the ingredients we need, because I DO NOT want to run out to the store. I'm pooped". Luckily, this is an EASY recipe! No big deal to make tortillas. You can see by the pictures Nate took that we all joined in and experimented with patting and rolling them flat.
And then, it was off to the hot-tub to soak my aching back.
