Tortillas are super easy to make if you have a tortilla press. I bought one at Target after trying to make them by hand, which resulted in masa dough all over the kitchen (ceiling and everything), and a lot of frustration. Now I never, ever buy tortillas!

Those arepas look delicious! I'm totally trying those one of these days.

I have to say that my arepas never formed any kind of dough, I just poured them into a pan and when the water cooked off and they crisped up it was delicious.

My plan this weekend was to work on a mashed turnip recipe...but it rained so bad I didn't make it to the farmer's market.  So I made twice baked potato bites instead.  Basically, you bake two potatoes, (I peeled mine afterward, I'm thinking that's not required, though) and then mix them thoroughly with three tablespoons fat free sour cream (I imagine plain yogurt would work, too), one egg, one tablespoon flour, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup shredded cheese, and either green onions chopped or chives (I used dried chives).  Then, the recipe has you fill mini muffin cups with 1 tbsp of the mix, but I don't have a mini muffin pan, so I just scooped it out using my cookie scoop, onto a piece of parchment.  Then bake at 350' for 25 minutes.  Perfect little handheld potato-y bites.  I made about 20 with one recipe--I was generous with the scoop--and figured about 32 calories for each one, if anyone's interested in that sort of thing.

Here's where I found them:  http://www.soveryblessed.com/2012/01/twice-baked-potato-bites.html

oh a tip for mashed turnip, salt the water that you boil them in, as you will use less salt that way. Then mash with butter and natural yoghurt and freshly ground black pepper. The yoghurt makes them lovely and creamy and allows you to reduce the amount of butter needed. My daughter adores this and we often use it to replace the mashed potato on top of a shepards pie. (more nutrients)

Ohhh, that sounds so tasty, edelC! I've never cooked a turnip but I think I might need to try Smiley.

Ooh, thanks edelC!  I actually read to both salt and sugar the water, to get them to take on a milder flavor...ever tried it?

Turnips actually have quite a bit of natural sugar in them so I could see how putting a little bit of sugar would mellow them out a bit. My dad used to make them when we were kids and put maple syrup on them. We're French Canadian. We put maple syrup on everything.
Now I actually prefer them roasted, just a little olive oil and seasoning (i like turmeric) and roast in the oven for like, 45 mins until nice and carmelized. Like candy! I suppose you could also roast them and then mash them to give them a heartier flavor!

Oops, I'm late for putting up a new challenge for this week! Sorry!

Health Prompt for Week of Feb 19-25:
Track what you eat for at least one day and evaluate if you want/need to change anything to meet your healthy eating goals. Not enough fruits and veggies? More fat than you want? Not enough protein? We all have different goals to make ourselves healthier, so please share your findings if you like!  (Whether that's sharing your food journal for the day + your evaluations or just your evaluations)

I am not a turnip fan, but I am going to revisit them because your suggestions sound wonderful!

I also found a pancake recipe that uses up some of my homemade yogurt...and is low in carbs!

I don't think I've ever eaten a turnip! I added a couple to our next grocery delivery. I'm excited to try them.
