Easy Freeze Ahead Veggie Breakfast Burrito Recipe Awesome!

Loving make ahead and freeze meals. While making omelets for dinner about a month ago I decided to experiment with a freeze ahead veggie breakfast burrito recipe inspired by a frozen quesadilla recipe from Slender Kitchen. I finally got around to heating it up and testing it out and it was amazing! Frozen for a month and still delicious. The burrito in the photo is the second burrito at 2 months frozen. I defrosted it and pan fried it, paired with some homemade guacamole and sweet potato fries. Yum!

Here is my recipe and check out the original recipe that inspired me from Slender Kitchen 

Freeze Ahead Veggie Breakfast Burritos
4 servings

5 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
1/3 cup of left over stir fry veggies and onions
1/3 cup black beans drained well
1/3 cup corn drained well
4 slices american cheese
salt, pepper, garlic to taste
4 tortillas

Scramble up the eggs and milk with salt, pepper, and/or garlic. Since I used left over veggies I didn't need to cook them, but I think frozen veggies would work fine if you defrosted them and patted them with some paper towel to dry out.

Break up the cheese slices and mix up the eggs, veggies, beans, corn, and cheese. Spread in the tortillas and roll em up. Put them in a freezer bag and remember to mark the date and recipe for easy future reference.

These burritos cooked up really well and can be microwaved, baked, or defrosted and pan fried.

To bake simply wrap in foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then flip it and leave the foil open to crisp up the outside for another 15 minutes.   Let them cool for about 5 minutes before digging in.

Keeping up with life, Organizing my to-do list, and Dolly Parton's words of wisdom

So its been a busy couple of weeks, but I have been trying to keep up with life, and making sure not to be too hard on myself when I do not =). The planner is going well, and I have been trying different ideas to keep my daily to-do list in order.  If you didn't get a chance before to check out some of my planner pages here is what the to-do list looks like, and you can download it here  and you can check out my other planner pictures here

So I tried using a highlighter to organize the order of importance, I also always number the things I have to do, but since there is so many things to do itis hard to differentiate between everything. Then I got some number stickers that were pretty cool, but not always the best. I also have been breaking different to-dos into bubbles so it is more accurate and I can cross something off even if the whole project is completed. It also helps me organize the steps I need to complete big tasks on the list.

So far the highlighter and use of a multi color pen coupled with numbering has helped. I have also learned to break the projects up over days now. It helps to plan and look forward and makes me feel less stressed out like I have to get everything done today.

This is important; I have been trying to remember this, and I got some amazing inspirational stickers the other day (pics soon!) that remind me, but I have to be gentle with myself. I have to give myself a break and remember I need time for me too. It sounds weird to read that last sentence, but it is true.  Sometimes we all need a break, a time to recoup, and regenerate. So on that note I will leave you with this quote from Dolly Parton, Thank you Miss Parton for the words of wisdom.

“Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”
