Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips

Here's a quick and easy toddler snack: Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Chips.
  • Organic whole wheat tortillas (we used some that are locally made)
  • Organic olive oil (butter would work too)
  • Cinnamon and sugar
    • I gave the girls each a tortilla and a small bowl of olive oil; they used Daddy's grill basting brushes to brush oil all over the tortilla
    • Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top
    • Bake at 400° until crisp (maybe 10 minutes or so)
    • Turn broiler on at end to melt the sugar, giving the chips a lovely sheen (just try to avoid over-broiling as there is a chance this might cause smoke hence setting off the smoke detector)

Time to share a few twin-tales... Now that the girls are back to their very perky ways, the house is once again filled with book-reading (I think Abby reads Mary Wore Her Red Dress at least 16 times before John even gets to the shower each morning) and self-dressing (Elise quickly latched on to some new jammies that I picked up last weekend and, with the exception of laundering each day, she has been wearing either the pants or shirt for the past 48 hours, straight). 
  • At approximately 6:32 yesterday morning, this conversation took place:
    • Abby: "Momma, I can't find Mary." (referring to the above-named book)
    • Elise: "Abby, you already look in library basket?"
    • Abby: "Yes, Elise. I already look. Do you know where Mary is?"
    • Elise: "Abby. Look in library basket again. Come on, I show you."
  • Upon entering the living room, I find that the cat Lucy (who the girls refer to as Chew-Chew) is passed out on the floor. Abby has conveniently placed the clothes pins attached to the bottom of balloons on Lucy's side, so the cat is lying there with debris sitting on top of her. 
    • Abby says to me "Momma, is Chew-Chew dead?"
    • Elise replies "No, Abby. Chew-Chew is alive."
Ahhhhh... good riddance illness. Welcome back 2-year old entertainment! :)
