In the evening, I made tortillas from scratch for the first time. I wanted to make quesadillas for dinner tomorrow and didn't feel like going to the grocery store. It was so easy and they are so tasty that I will NEVER buy tortillas again. Awesome.

All you need is 200 grams of flour, 50 grams of butter, a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar. You blitz it in the mixer, adding a few spoonfuls of water until you get a soft, sticky dough. Split into ten balls and let it all rest on the counter for 30 minutes, under a clean dish towel. Roll out and grill about 45 seconds on each side, using a very hot, ungreased pan.
