Beefing Up Our Freezer Stash - Burritos!

B and I pretty much chilled at home this week. I used Monday to beef up my post-baby food stash (I already have a few big crockpot meals in the freezer). I made up a big pile of burritos to add to it. These will be great because we can pull out 1 or 2 and pop them in the microwave when we need something quick. And they are super easy to make. I just laid out a bunch of tortillas and topped them with refried beans, taco meat mix (you can use anything! I use a mix of hamburger, black beans, quinoa, taco seasoning, and salsa. It's great to mix in veggies like corn or zucchini too!), and some cheese.


Then I just folded up the burritos and stuck them in freezer bags. All done!




That didn't take very long so once it was done it was pretty much just play time for a boy and his mama. Here he demonstrates the best way to ride a zebra. Now you know.


Then he noticed the tripod was out and wanted to take some pictures of his favorite mama. He feels super-awesome when he gets to push the button all by himself.


And this is the pose he likes to call "HOCKEY! MAMA!"


Then we watched a big truck trimming trees along the street (they honked at him and made his day). We also played with the baby... as much as you can when it's still in a tummy! It was kicking enough B could see my tummy moving and I think it's the first time he realized there's actually something in there. He kept feeling it and getting real close to yell "HELLO! BABY!"

And that was our day. Not too bad for a Monday! ;)

  3. I was wondering if you would share the burrito mixture proportions: Beef, Quinoa, etc?

    1. Sure thing! I just kind of use what I have but usually it's about 1 lb hamburger, 1/2 jar of salsa, 1 can black beans, and 1/2 cup dry quinoa (I cook it before I add it to the mix). I add 3-4 Tbs of my homemade taco seasoning, you can find it at the bottom half of this post: http://www.morelikehome.net/2013/10/day-23-spice-rub.html#more
