164 of 365


If it hadn't been for the new car and then my trip to see Mamma Mia, the World Cup would have featured before now! But here it is, June 13th, 3 days in. By now England had drawn with the US (poor Robert Green...)

And here's a perfect snack for in front of the football - homemade tortilla chips:


Cut a tortilla wrap into triangles (I cut it into 8 wedges then cut each wedge into 4 triangles). Spray a baking tray lightly with olive oil, arrange the tortilla pieces in the tray, then spray lightly again - this helps them to crisp up and also helps any flavourings to stick! Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, or with chilli powder, or paprika, or other flavouring of your choice. Bake at 200oC for about 15 minutes, until lightly golden and crisp. One tortilla will supply two servings.

Looks like a great snack.

I see you've got half a wall covered with a chart. We have too :)

That sounds a much healthier version of tortillas than the 'Buy packet from Tesco. Open packet. Eat. The whole packet. On your own.' (Oh the shame!)

Hi Mel ~ I know what you mean about being busy. I've been in the same boat lately...just trying to keep up!

I'm a big fan of rice pudding so I'm going to give your recipe a try! And I like your take on the tortilla chips. These are also great sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon for a sweet treat. :o)

Hang in there! xo

Those chips looks so yummy. We'll have to give that a try at home!

Wow.. is that what tortilla chips actually are? I think even I could make those!

We missed out on the World Cup charts.. but the newsagent down the road is selling MASSIVE posters of Wayne Rooney for £1.99.. er, no thanks!!

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog, Mel.. I'm kinda hoping to keep a lower profile this month (at least til I get a new photo done!)
