Last year I started making a conscious decision to significantly decrease the amount of processed foods that I buy. I’m not perfect, but yesterday’s quick grocery run was a proud one for me:
- chicken breasts
- wheat germ
- whole wheat flour
- kosher salt
- good wisconsin cheddar cheese aged 9 months
- Archer Farms salsa from Target (my new favorite since leaving Trader Joe’s behind and the only non-whole food in the bunch—but I can read and pronounce all the ingredients, a good sign)
I started making these homemade tortillas last summer and they became an instant hit. I follow the recipe pretty closely, but decrease the water to approximately 3/4 cup, depending on the consistency of the dough. I also don’t use any oil on the pan at all. In all it takes about 45 minutes total to make a dozen—approximately 20 minutes is active time.
Little G likes to roll the dough (odd shapes make this a fun project—last night she rolled out what she thought looked like the state of Maine) and Sweet A is in charge of the stove and has it down to a science when to flip. She also likes to put a pinch of salt on the pan before the I toss on the dough.
I threw together my favorite easy chicken fajita recipe and we had a tasty, quick dinner free from processed food.
Chicken fajitas taste pretty great wrapped in Maine, Texas, and Florida.
