Happy Election Day!
I debated whether or not to go into my thoughts on different policies because I’m actually very interested in politics and try to stay as informed as I can on the big topics. In the end, I decided against it. I’m not going to change anyone’s mind. No one is going to change mine. I feel like our country has become so divided against each other and I don’t want to perpetuate that. I believe in my heart that we all have the best interest of our country in mind, even if we have drastically different ideas on which path is best. Whatever your view, go vote and make your voice heard!
Whether my candidate of choice wins or looses, I’m hoping America can pull out of this slump we’ve been in and get back to focusing on being a great nation of hard-working, resilient and kind people that I know we are.
…and at the very least, all those facebook and twitter rants people have been going on should cease soon! Mine ends here
Ok, moving on! One thing that ties us all together? Breakfast!
::I’ll pause for a moment and let that awkward transition pass by::
David gets up pretty early for work. In the early days of marriage I’d often wake up and make him breakfast. Guess I was trying to go for wife-of-the-year? Well, the honeymoon is over and now he’s often out the door as I’m waking up. Because of this, I’ve stuck him with bagels and cream cheese. Everyday of the week.
Lucky for me, he doesn’t complain, but I wanted to switch things up for him, because, well, he’s pretty great. Therefore he totally deserves a burrito.
…because burritos are awesome.
Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos
You will need-
- 16-20 large wheat tortillas
- 12-14 eggs
- 2 white potatoes, peeled and diced
- veggies of choice (I used zucchini, red pepper, onion & spinach)
- sausage or bacon (optional)
- cheese of choice (pepper jack adds a lot of flavor)
- olive oil
First up, prep all your veggies. Add 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil to a large pan and sauté the diced potatoes with a sprinkle of salt and pepper until they are soft.
Put in a large bowl and set aside.
Repeat with the vegetables.
And the sausage.
And the eggs.
This process takes a little while, maybe 30 minutes, so make sure you’re little ones have things to entertain themselves or be prepared for your cabinets to be raided.
Now you’re ready to assemble!
I made a rookie mistake and got mid-sized tortillas. Definitely get the large so it’s easier to wrap.
Add all the ingredients to the wrap. Don’t forget the salsa because it helps keep it soft when reheating. Just a little will do.
Roll it up, wrap it in foil and store in a freezer bag. To reheat, simply unwrap, roll it in a paper towel and microwave it for 2-3 minutes.
The reviews are in and it’s a hit! Only complaint was messiness of a poor wrap job, which is why I recommend the larger tortillas!
