Making Memories Monday - That's One Big Tortilla!

You never know what you'll find for sale on the street here in Oaxaca.  We can do quite a bit of shopping from our car window at a stop light.  These are a few of the things we've seen for sale:  newspapers, bags of fruit and veggies, gum, candy, inflatable toys, electric fly swatters, furniture...just to name a few. 

Today, while Elyse and I were running to the grocery store, we found a man selling these.

Looks like a normal bag of tortillas, huh?

Not quite!

There are 4 of them inside the bag.  I'm still not sure what we are going to do with them...maybe it is time for a party?! 

Here in Oaxaca, this is called a Tlayuda (large, crunchy tortilla).  Usually, they are a little larger than a dinner plate.  I think this batch got a little out of control!  I'm not even sure it will fit in our oven. 

Oh well...
Buen Provecho!
