It was just too bloomin' hot again to mow grass.

It was a little tough getting the water ratio right, but I kneaded in what extra flour I needed.

I made it here! hahaha Thank you SO MUCH for posting this. Since we are avoiding flour these days, I'm gonna try corn meal... Can't wait. Thanks, also, for showing me this forum! I look forward to figuring it out more and joining in on the conversation.

The Homesick Texan has my favorite recipe for flour tortillas!

I wanted to add, for whole grain, I do half whole wheat half oat flour. This is more for a breakfast type meal than I would use for enchiladas or tacos. But wonderful, since the oatflour makes them softer and chewier.

I have those same Corelle dishes Karen! I have plain white - given to my by my mom, who got them as a wedding gift in 1973 - plus the ones in the photo you posted, and some with little green flowers on them that I've picked up at thrift stores here and there. Love 'em!

I really need to try these tortillas. They were one of the big reasons I bought my cast iron pan, but I still haven't given them a try. I'm a little fearful to be honest!

Anna I was just going to stop over at LS&G after here to get your recipe. Happy to see it here! You + tortillas = why I bought the darn cast iron pan in the first place. I've got to do it!
