What's Cookin' Good Lookin'

I'm Obsessed with Garage Sales!

Ever since we found out we were pregnant (and with twins), we knew we would have to bargain hunt for clothes,toys,books...etc...
Well between my sister and I, we officially have enough clothing for the boys to get us through 2years old!! HOLY COW- never thought we would get this lucky!

We sorted all of the clothing- 12month box, 18months, 24 months.
We have been so fortunate between clothing and diapers that we haven't had to spend a penny on either so far! And now it looks like we won't have to worry about clothes for a long long time.

So, for those of you who don't know, Brad's job requires him to be in a vehicle and outdoors ALL day long. Which means his lunches consist of no hot meals and no cold meals..So we try to be as creative as possible with healthy and quick meals -we also come up with some fun breakfast-to-go ideas!

We started making Breakfast Burritos.
We make a big batch at a time then freeze them all so he just has to grab one- pop it in the microwave and he's out the door.

   We Have:
~Tortilla Wraps (Last time I used the large 10inch shells, this time I am using the 6inch shells)
 ~Shredded Cheese
~ 1lb. Breakfast Sausage
~8 eggs, scrambled

*You can see in the pictures that I have the eggs on paper towels to suck out any liquid, and the sausage in a strainer to get rid of any grease.

Any extra liquid will make your tortilla wraps soggy!

I think everyone knows how to make a burrito..but you know, pile it on the shell and wrap them up!

I place them all on a cookie sheet and pop them in the freezer.  I will leave them to freeze for at least 4 hours. Then You can put them in a large ziplock baggie. 

This is 20 Burritos--so with 5work days a week, this is 4 weeks of breakfasts for Brad!
Total Cost::
about $6.50 for these 20 burritos = $0.30 a day for breakfast!! Cheapest Breakfast you can get! :)

  1. Corner's job leaves him in the same boat (working outside or out of a car most days, so he can't really take anything that has to be eaten hot or cold). I'll have to pass on this recipe to him! :)
