The meal plan called for chicken soft tacos, and I decided that I would make homemade tortillas, which I haven't done in a while. When the kids got home from school, they enthusiastically agreed, and asked to help.

Able Assistant #1 (aka Alec, aka Danger!Boy) took charge of rolling them out:
Able Assistant #2 (Drew, the Teenager) volunteered to cook them:

QA (Melissa, my wife) did some random testing to ensure taste and texture met design specs:
And the Animal Control Specialist (My daughter Fran) made sure the cat did not help himself to any tortillalicious noms:
Everyone topped their tortillas to their taste
and a good time was had by all.
