for the love of flatbread

a while back i mentioned this (awesome) cookbook that i got....for mother's day, actually. one of the many recipes we have taken a liking to is the one for flatbread.

it's really easy to make and the kids love to get involved with the dough preparation. i've found it to be true that kids will much more happily eat what they have helped to make. . . or grow.
flatbread is not only tasty, but versatile! you can roll it up with any number of fillings inside or just layer stuff on top of it. which is our favorite! i love to eat mine with a really fresh egg from the chickens at bb's school, some raw milk cheddar, ham and fresh herbs on top. YUM!

i'm not going to reprint the recipe here because i want you to go and get the book, but i will
say it could not be easier. flour, water, salt and oil. roll it around into a little ball. let it sit a while. . .

roll it out niiiiiiiiice and flat. . .

cook it in a super hot pan (no oil) until it starts to brown and flip it. . .

cover them with a tea towel as they come out of the pan. . .

definitely eat one warm with a little butter or almond butter or whatever you like because they are de-lish right off the griddle!

Ok, I can't take it anymore. I just ordered this book. My library never got it. It sounds like one that's better to own anyway, being recipes and I want some ham.
