It’s about to be week two of school for us and that means that the routine has really started, boo hoo! This last week was especially hard down here in Texas. Typically back to school means mom gets a break! It’s the week that grocery shopping gets done, laundry gets done, the house gets in order, hair gets cut, hair gets colored, nails get done…. it’s the week of back to normalcy, except this past week we as Texans, and the gracious people from Louisiana, stopped everything to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. People began food drives, clothing drives, animal rescue drives…we as a state dropped everything to drive down to Houston to deliver collected items, loan boats and manpower. It was an amazing thing and showed the true Texan way of helping your neighbor!
This horrible event showed how much love, acceptance, and humanity there is in this country. In my personal opinion, I feel that we give the news media too much attention on the small amount of hate that exists in this country. Hate seems to sell and that is what the media has become – show business. The Charlottesville atrocity was a tiny portion of people in our country. Most of us are loving, caring, hard-working people that get along with all races, ethnicities, religions and orientations. If Hurricane Harvey showed us anything it showed us that the world is filled with more love than hate. Lets focus on that people!
Ok, now that I am off my soapbox lets get back to the really important things in life, like what the hell and I am going to feed my family for breakfast:)
If you are organized, or just want to try to be a Pinterest mom for awhile, here is a great make-ahead breakfast. These delicious mini burrito breakfast bowls are quick, healthy, eat-in-the car kind of breakfast. Make a batch and keep them in the fridge or freeze them for future use. You can put whatever you like in these, obviously, there are no rules! Add broccoli, mushrooms, onions, jalapeÃ±os, ham… whatever your family will eat.

Mini Sausage and Cheese Burrito Bowls
6 flour tortillas, cut in half
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
5oz fully cooked sausage (such as Jimmy Dean fully cooked turkey sausage crumbles)
1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced
1/4 cup pepper jack cheese, grated
Preheat oven to 350Â°
Spray a non-stick muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cheddar cheese, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes until fluffy.
Place a tortilla half in each muffin mold twisting so the tortilla creates a bowl.
Pour the egg mixture evenly into each tortilla bowl about 1/2 way full. Place a small amount of sausage and red bell pepper in each bowl. Top with pepper jack cheese.
Place in oven and cook uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked through. If the tortilla edges begin to brown too much you can cover with foil, but be sure and spray the foil with cooking spray so it doesn't stick to the cheese.
*Serve warm or let cool and place in zip-top bag or plastic container and keep in fridge for 3-4 days. Heat wrapped in paper towel for 35-45 seconds in the microwave.
*If you want to freeze then place in zip -op bag with bowls not touching and freeze in a single year in freezer. To heat, wrap in paper towel and heat in microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
