Cooking Frenzy

IMG_3601I went on a cooking frenzy earlier this week, along with making dinner for that night, I made the meat for the next 2 nights, and these burritos to freeze.

Mr. Dunbar goes to the gym in the morning and then to work. There’s not really too much time in his morning schedule to sit down to eat breakfast. For the past few years a power bar would suffice, but as his days are getting longer he needs something more hardy. So breakfast burritos it is. IMG_3602

These burritos had beans (homemade), tater tots,  shredded chicken, green sauce, mexican rice, and pepper jack cheese.

Once I get them all assembled, I wrap them in wax paper, and throw them in a gallon sized freezer bag. Each night when I make his lunch, I just toss one in.

No extra preservatives. And breakfast is done.

Since I don’t cook eggs, his mom makes him some too, with eggs. So that’s a win win for us both.

Anyone have any other breakfast shortcuts?

Oh yum...what a great idea! Your comment on my blog the other day about warming tortillas makes me wonder if you make yours? These look really good!

Sarah said...

Sounds yum...I'm asking the same question as Kim...why don't you cook eggs? :)

Cindy said...

Those really look yummy!
And the fact that they are all cooked ahead and grab and go...bonus!
have a happy day

great idea with the burritos.
they look delicous too!

and what do you mean you don't cook eggs? do you have an egg aversion?

sounds good. I don't make eggs either. no one in our house eats them. I make large batches of pancakes and waffles and freeze them and then pull them out to feed the boys

I only like eggs sometimes. Too much of them and my stomach turns.

These burritos looks amazing, and I love the idea of freezing them.

Amber said...

you have to blog about your traumatic egg experience!
it will be good for a laugh!

joseph emailed me the paleo version of your burritos today....like a "hint, hint"

but for some reason the idea of freezing grape-leaf burritos makes me kind-of gag...call me crazy!

Sounds great, and you had me until you said Tator tots in the burrito! Here I thought you were my authentic Mexican friend. Yowza! I went on a frenzy too - but here is where we differ internationally and culterally - I made Spaghetti sauce, beef stew, and chicken soup all for dinners and left overs for my freezer. If we were smart, we would swap some of mine for some of yours! If we were smart......
