Things Fall Apart

Although it does feel like my life is falling apart at the moment, the title of this post actually refers to the pitiful tortilla I used today:
  • sliced herbed turkey, light cheddar cheese, spinach and red pepper on a whole wheat tortilla
  • strawberries
  • red grapes
  • sugar snap peas
I don't know how to make my tortillas pliable once they are not perfectly fresh. I've had then for about a week and I hate wasting food so I want to use them up. Usually I warm it up a little on the stove burner before I lay out the goods on top and try to roll it. It makes it a bit softer and easy to work with. Well, that didn't work this time. I essentially ended up making a taco/sandwich with this tortilla because it split and fell apart when I folded it. Meh. Lunch was still pretty tasty. Especially the grapes. Crunchtastic. They will definitely be on the menu tomorrow.


  1. You may try putting your tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds with a damp paper towel over them. Sometimes that helps. And freezing them will help keep them fresh a little longer.

    I hope things go more smoothly for you tomorrow.

  2. I was just going to suggest the same thing - putting them in the microwave with a damp paper towel.

    That wrap looks tasty - I'm going to have to pick some up.
