The new toy!
I have made pupusas before (sorry if my spelling is off) so I know the basics of making the dough with corn flour. Two cups flour and a little over a cup of water. Stir/kneed for a minute or two, and form into balls. Leave under a moist towel for about half an hour.
Put them on an un-oiled skillet, and cook for about three minutes on one side, two on the other. Until it kind of pushes away from the skillet.

I keep them in a stack under a paper towel. Not that I really think that keeps the warmth in, but it for some reason makes me feel better.

Fill with whatever you like, then cook an additional couple of minutes to get everyting all gooey and yummy. And presto, you have a quesadilla! I put Brie in mine.

I was so hungry I couldn't wait. I broke one apart and used it as a chip to eat my brie.
A first rate dinner, if I do say so myself!
And of course, with all that waiting for timers to go off, I had a bit of time to knit:

And there you have it, my adventure with the tortilla press!
