Breakfast On The Go

So yeah, not doing so great on the updating. oh well...better late than never right?!

So my walking challenge was put on hold due to a broken toe. Thankfully my toe is healed and I'm back in my walking shoes!

I tried my first Once A Month Cooking recipe a couple of weeks ago. I made the Breakfast Burritos. I got the recipe from Once A Month Mom's blog. It's just a basic recipe and you can customize it to your own tastes.

I cooked 1 lb of bulk sausage and some onion

then 1 package of refrigerated shredded hash browns.

I set them aside while I scrambled 1 dozen eggs.

Then I combined the eggs, with the sausage & hash browns. To that I added 1 cup of salsa and 1 package of taco flavored cheese.

I used 20 fat free tortillas. They did keep breaking and that may be due to them being fat free, but that was what was on sale.

I put 1/4 cup of the mixture into each flour tortilla.

Wrapped them in foil and placed them in the freezer.

Each morning I just grab one, unwrap and microwave for 2 minutes! It's so handy and yummy!

I also made home made ham & cheese biscuit "hot pockets"

I made a simple white sauce, added 1 package of cheddar cheese and some cut up ham.

Placed about 1/4 cup into 2 triangles(1 rectangle) of crescent roll dough.

Folded them over and baked them until golden brown on the top. Once they had cooled I wrapped them individually in foil. When I want to eat them I prepare them like the burritos, except only microwave them 1 1/2 minutes. Now I can always have a good breakfast and I'm sure they are healthier than the store ones.

I hope to try some other breakfast recipe ideas that I can eat on the go.

Well Here Goes...

So I'm going to give this a shot! Hopefully I'll have something exciting enough to say that merits publishing on this blog. After recently beginning to follow blogs I've been inspired to begin my own. This will probably be a journal about the daily happenings in my life, nothing earth-shattering and epic but that's fine by me! A few things happening right now are that I've just registered on the Family Circle/American Heart Association's Walking Challenge 2010! From April 12-July 4, 2010; you keep track of your walking mileage daily on their website. At the end of the challenge the person with the most miles wins a trip to Mexico, and the second place prize is a treadmill. Even if I don't win, I'll certainly be healthier! I also am compiling my 101 in 1001 list. Basically its a list of 101 things that you want to accomplish in 1001 days. Some things are short term, some long term, some easier, some more difficult. Actually starting a blog is my number 1 on my list. You don't have to do them in order, just try to do them all. It will probably be difficult for me to do them out of order, though LOL! I've got one down, 100 to go! Well, I'm off to grandma's for the evening!

Have a great week!
