Fired Tortilla

George Walker


When I was a kid 11 or 12yrs old I lived in Menlo Park CA. There were a lot of neighbor kids to pal around with. One day a pal invited me into his house when his Mom called him. Mom was cooking on the stove and we gathered around. The kid was excited. On the burner was a round yellow/grainy something about 6" in dia. Mom flipped the thing over and I saw spreckled marks on the outside of it and a design that looked the same as the burner. The kid got one and wolfed it down. Mom made another one and gave it to me. I ate it and wondered what it was. I didn't get this at my house.1953 era.
