Yes, my friends, it is a sad, sad kitchen here.
But behold, this is when wicked creativity is born.
Do not fear.
Enter: bread. There is none of it in my apartment! And I've been feeling extremely cheap lately, thanks to my unpaid (yet amazing, might I add!) internship. Oh well. The problem with bread-making at 11pm with limited ingredients? No yeast. No milk. Which means that no tortilla, nor English muffins, nor a normal bread loaf could be made.
What do I say? The hell with yeast! Who needs it?! I made up my own "tortilla" recipe using olive oil, and a little sugar, salt, and water. Voila! You has dough!
Ohhhh, see that rolling action? Now, no yeast means that these puppies won't rise. But that's alright. So what did we do? Fry 'em in a pan!
They were lifted from the plate....
And put in a pan. :) Now, I thought they would need a decent amount of oil to cook, so I proceeded to put a decent amount of oil in the pan, thinking I'd use it for multiple tortillas. Wrong. The one tortilla ended up soaking up allllll the oil I had put in the pan. Yum. Artery-cloggin' yum.
Needless to say, that tortilla was a little more delicious than the others.
Actually, the tortillas need very little oil to cook, and if I had cooking spray here, that would've been just fine to use. You can literally watch the tortilla go from a dark to light color, which means it's getting cooked-up.
And there they are! They are definitely more tough than tortillas and are not so soft, but they have a pretty good wheat, nutty taste.
And what will happen with them will come in the very near future....
