TGIM loves a good corn torilla, so I learned how to make them. He's a lucky man isn't he? ha ha ha. Personally, I would much rather have a flour tortilla. I love a good thick, chewy flour tortilla. Honestly, so does TGIM. On the rare occasion when he's home AND inside while I'm making them it goes something like this. Cook tortilla, TGIM eats tortilla. Cook 2nd tortilla, put in warmer. Cook 3rd tortilla, TGIM eats it. Cook 4th tortilla, put in warmer. This will pretty much go on until I start screaming at him and brandishing my rolling pin as a weapon. The thing is crazy heavy and TGIM's is a little scared that I might do some damage if I manage to connect. What he doesn't realize is that with the astronomical price I paid for it (I was at a Vendor Fair and it's hand made in my town from wood from 4 continents, it's magnificent) I would never actually harm it.
