Flat Bread and Bubble Baths

Tonight I made one of my favorite meals and thought I would share it with you. I have food allergies, so if you are on a yeast free diet, this bread is perfect for you. It is so simple and perfect to wrap around your favorite fillings.

Add 2 cups of white flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 cup warm water and 1/8 cup oil. Flours can be different, so if it is too moist, add a bit more flour. You want the dough to be soft and more moist than dry, but not a wet moist. Make your balls, about 2" round. I roll my dough in whole wheat flour, it gives the bread a nutty taste, but you can use white flour. Roll the dough out and move around to make it as round as possible. Roll it till it is paper thin, or you can make it a little thicker, you can experiment to see what you like best. Heat a skillet, I use setting 5 on my gas stove, about 1 above a medium setting. Throw you rolled bread into the pan and when bubbles form on the top, turn it over. It cooks quick and you want it slightly browned, but soft.

I make these up and fill them with a mix of chicken, onions, various peppers, including hot and sometimes tomatoes. You can also use them for tuna or any sandwich filling that you like. I refrigerate the extras and the next day, I heat them up for a few secs in a pan and they are like you just made them.





We are getting lots of snow today, so I thought it would be a good night for a hot bubble bath. Well, in this house that means the gang has to join me, I have no privacy or peace, lol. Casey loves bubbles, and he loves to eat them, and Dora loves to get in on the fun too. They do the funniest things, but of course, trying to take pictures while in a tub of water, is not easy. These are the best ones I could get. Casey makes a lot of weird faces;)

Thanks for your flat bread recipe, Debbie. I'm going to try this since I need to lower my carb count to keep my blood glucose under control. And your wraps are enough to make me hungry. I like my wraps with mesquite chicken, onion, mushrooms and tomato. Yum.

I'm glad that there's someone else out there who can't go to the bathroom without company. I have at least 2 cats who 'have' to be with me in the bathroom, no matter what I'm doing. Frustrating as all get out but.....!!!

Your flat bread is exactly how we make tortilla, so good! Cute bubble pictures.

I guess they are tortillas too, I just call it flat bread when I make it this way. We do have a tortilla press, but they never come out right with that. I find rolling easier for me.

those pics of the bubble bath are funny Debbie - looks like Casey and Dora are having a good time. Riley likes to "bubble with me - makes it into a "spa" when he plays "row row your boat" with his paw!
