Making Whole Wheat Tortillas

I love whole wheat tortillas and they are so much better for me. Unfortunately in a small town they are so hard to find! So I decided today to try my hand at making my own. It was so easy to do, now it does take a little bit of time and is pretty boring.lol But the results are worth it.

*2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
*2 Teaspoons Oil(I use sunflower oil)
*3/4 Cup Warm Water(you can use warm milk instead to make them fluffier
*1/2 Teaspoon Salt
*1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Mix in a bowl the flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Add in oil then slowly add water til you get a dough. Now my key was to be as healthy as possible here. You can exchange the oil for lard and water for milk to get a more traditional tortilla. However when I covered these in food I couldn't tell the difference.

After you form a dough cover it and let sit for 10 minutes. Divide into dough balls that are about the size of an egg. Roll your dough out flat, pretty much as flat as you can get it. Of course it all depends how thick you like your tortillas. You may need a little extra flour to keep the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. I used my griddle to cook them up because I can do two at once. Cook on one side till it starts to puff up a bit and then flip. The spots that were fluffy will start to brown slightly :O) then you are done!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
