Anyway, he mentioned briefly, on Friday, I think it was, his desire to bring some of our homemade salsa and homemade tortilla chips to school for the fiesta. I was kind of surprised that he wanted to bring salsa, considering that it's very spicy, and he doesn't like it, but I was willing to let him have some. On Monday, he mentioned it again, this time saying, I need it tomorrow, mom.
Uh, son, if you need it tomorrow, you're plum outta luck, because you needed to do more than just mention it if you wanted me to actually buy some tortillas for you to make into chips.
Faced with my unwillingness to go out right then and buy tortillas, and his own unwillingness to make tortillas from scratch, AKD went to plan B, which was to search for Spanish desserts online that are both easy to make and for which we already had all the ingredients.
Here is what he found, and oh my, they are so simple to make and so delicious. Well, I mean, what's not to like about butter and sugar and cinnamon, all baked up in a tasty flaky nugget of Spanish goodness?
