So, what does Pinterest have for us today?

21 Feb

This has proved to be an exciting week so far here at the Harrell household.  First, let me start by saying up front-I am not a cook!  I have been blessed with a wonderful husband who actually enjoys cooking!  I was the youngest of 3 girls in my family, and I must admit (however much I don’t like to) that I was quite spoiled.  My oldest sister always “took over” this job at home helping my mom.

So, needless to say I never “had” to cook.  In fact, it really stresses me out!  So, the Lord blessed me with a husband whose mom relied on him to help her cook the meals when he got home from school.

Now, to get to how this relates to the here and now.  I have recently been introduced to the wonderful site of Pinterest!  I have found so many neat and interesting projects that even the people who are not crafty and not chefs can fix.

Sunday for lunch I fixed the most delicious Garlic Lemon Chicken with some delicious sides.  But, then I realized I didn’t have any rolls or bread.  So, I thought to myself “What would the folks on Pinterest do?”  So, I pulled down the flour, threw together some ingredients, and to my wonderful amazement (and that of my husband and 3 boys) I had made the most delicious homemade biscuits!  Of course, I had to call my mom, my sisters, my mother-in-law, and anyone else that would listen.  My husband was soooo proud of me and told me what a great job I had done!

Now comes Monday.  My husband wanted to grill steaks.  It was one of those treasured days when soccer practice was cancelled and we didn’t have swim team practice, and we were going to enjoy a great sit down meal.  I had seen a recipe for flour tortillas on Pinterest that I really wanted to try.  After my amazing success with the biscuits I thought “why not?”

So, I got the ingredients, rolled up the dough, let it sit for an hour, made my little balls, rolled them out with the pin (with the help of my husband and middle son) cooked them in the pan, and get ready for this: they were AMAZING!

We lived in Mexico for 3 years, and we have worked in Mexico for the past 12 years.  Homemade flour tortillas were the one thing that you ate at every meal!  I had one of our church members try to help me one time while we were living there, but it was a disaster!  But, I am here to tell you that they tasted just like the ones we had there!

You know they are a success when your youngest son (who by the way is a very picky eater) comes in, grabs one and then you see him go back and forth to the kitchen.  When I went in to clean up after dinner-they were almost all gone!  Now, Aaron (who is 10) only eats flour tortillas when we have Mexican.  He doesn’t like hard shells.  He will grab a tortilla out of the fridge and slap on some cheese, heat it in the microwave, and those as a snack.  So, it passed the test of my “tortilla connoisseur” so I consider it a great success!

So there you have it folks!  Now, this is funny-as I was sitting here typing this, my dear husband walks by and says “So, what does Pinterest have for us today?”

Until next time Yaw!
