Fresh Made Tortillas Anyone?

Talk about a hectic week: homework assignments, classes, bad comedy show, interviews, etc. And it's not even over yet; it's only Wednesday night. I want to say kill me now, but at the same time not really. I am looking forward to so much this weekend and the weeks ahead.

First of all, Monday is Marathon Monday. For those of you who aren't Beantown residents and don't know what I mean, look it up. I'm just going to say that it's a BIG holiday, even if you're not running the marathon. But this year is extra special because I am biking the Boston Marathon. I'm not actually biking alongside the runners or anything like that, but I am taking a bike at midnight Sunday (once the course is all set up) and riding it out. How exiting is that!?

Anyways, there's also just the weekend. Time to relax? Maybe, but more like time to catch up on all the work I have since it's the end of the semester. I am hoping to get everything done before Easter so that I can enjoy my mini vacation in NYC (I am meeting my mom and sister there for the weekend).

Ok, well enough said about my life, because I really have no energy to write much. I couldn't go to sleep without posting, but I am very tired and tonight is not the night to exploit my writing. So moving onto food, today I made chicken fajitas for dinner. You might be asking yourself why they are not showcased on this post, but I made them for my first article at The Quad (BU's independent online magazine). You'll be able to see my article soon (I hope), but for now, pictures will have to suffice.

I made the tortillas with Maseca, which is an instant corn-tortilla flour. I ordered it online about a week ago and it brightened my morning when it arrived at my doorstep today. The dough itself was very easy to make, but the trickier part was flattening the tortillas without a press. I relied on a heavy fashion book that I bought last year, pressing it over the dough covered in wax paper. But it took a lot longer than I wished it had so I am planning to bring a tortilla press with me next time I go to Mexico.
