Tortilla Pie
*added 2 tsp of cumin and some shredded cheddar cheese
So, I took my own advice yesterday and attempted to "slow down" at dinner time. Wow....that was not easy. Within the first 5 minutes, my 2 1/2 year old was crying and was asked to leave the table and my 3 1/2 year old was complaining that she didn't have enough ranch. Whew....(and now I'm supposed to ask a conversation starter question or read a story)???!!!! Well, thats what I did. I first asked my daughter, Claire, what she wanted to do when she grows up. Not surprisingly, she said ballerina. My son, Caleb, (remember, not sitting at the table), from the couch, says he wants to be a robot. Ha ha. After a good laugh, he came back to the table. I thought to myself, ok, now it's time for a story. How about Daniel in the lion's den. I get as far as, Daniel still prayed to God everyday even though the King said not to.......when my son is asked to leave the table...again.....and my daughter gets in trouble for using her fork as an instrument. About that time, I decide.....I am defeated. I'll try again tomorrow. Through all the chaos, the tortilla pie was awesome! My daughter calls it tortillo pie :) and ate every bite. It would be good with shredded lettuce, olives, sour cream, and maybe some salsa. I hope you try it. Leave comments here to let me know what you think! Don't give up if your dinnertime sounds something like mine. Just try again tomorrow.
