Quesadillas and wraps of some sort are really the foundation of this house. We buy 100 calorie whole wheat tortillas in bulk at Sam's Club and always have them on hand. We panic if there is only one 20 pack left in the freezer. So you can imagine the horror when I got home from my vacation to discover an email from my brother titled THE END OF THE WORLD. (He lives with us and probably eats more tortillas than the rest of us).
So I get this email and he has told me that THERE WERE NO MORE TORTILLAS LEFT IN THE HOUSE. I had gone on vacation and left him tortilla-less. Never mind the bagels, english muffins and several loaves of bread in the freezer downstairs. He turned to cheesecake. As he often does when left without options to eat.
We quickly ran to Sam's Club and bought 3 boxes, just to come home to find that my brother had gone there as well and bought 4 boxes. So clearly the world was NOT going to end and we once again had tortillas again.
Now that I am gluten free, I leave the whole wheat tortilla shopping to him and I stick to corn tortillas. I find I like them better actually.
