Major Success!

FaithButton
1. After literally 10 years of trying (hey, I started young), I have finally perfected homemade flour tortillas! Authentic, soft, airy, delicious. I'm SO happy about this one! Dozens of attempts and they were never right. Seriously, I'm going to ride this kitchen high for a long time. (I'll post the recipe and tips in the coming weeks).

2. I froze 3 gallon bags of peaches and made several pints of peach butter. I thought I could never get my fill of peaches, but...

3. In just 10 days I've earned $5 on Sidetick and actually cashed in my first $5 Amazon gift card from Swagbucks. At this rate, I should be enjoying my dream flour mill by May 7th, 2011. Not bad for a few minutes a day. Check out the guides on the right sidebar if you're interested.

4. Bonus success for my husband: He figured out that lemon seeds were clogging the little sprayers in our dishwasher. Maybe we won't need a new dishwasher after all!

I NEED that tortilla recipe!!! I haven't had the guts to cook with Crisco shortening, but if your recipe calls for it and you stand by it, I'll try it out!!

I thought your swagbucks and sidetick earnings were going towards a gift for your hubby... ;)

Erika Marie said...

ooo so excited for the tortilla recipe! Do you need a special tortilla press or anything fancy like that?

Farmer's City Wife said...

Everybody: thanks for your kind comments.

Lindsey: lol, they were until I found a stash of cash hidden so well I'd forgotten I had it, hehehe.

Erika Marie: No, and that's the beauty of it. You do need a rolling pin, but more on that later...
