Breakfast burriots- see below
Blueberry muffins
Pumpkin poppers
The majority of the time we eat scrambled eggs or Kashi ceral, but as of late I've been making this drink and I really like it!

I made this apple pie last night. I ended up substituting pecans for almonds and Vitmain D milk for cream, because that's what I had on hand. I also cooked the apple slices in butter (go big or go home) for 15 minutes on med heat to ensure they would be soft enough. I like my apple slices to melt in my mouth. It turned out delicious!

Because I don't measure, here are the basic ingredients I use for my Chili:
Package of ground turkey
2 cans black beans
2 cans kidney beans
2 cans chili beans
3-4 cans tomato sauce- If I need more liquid I use Chicken stock
1 packet of Williams chili seasoning
Lots of garlic
Sometimes I sneak in a couple tablespoons of sugar
I taste the chili once it's cooked and decide if it needs more salt, cumin, or chili powder.

Toppings: Jalapenos, cheese, sour cream (or Greek Yogurt), avocado, tortilla chips or crackers.

Breakfast burriots
Again I don't measure, so here are basic instructions.
Eggs- I use as many as I feel necessary. Usually 18-24.
Red peppers- 2-3
Mushrooms- 2 handfuls of diced
Onion-1 diced
A bit of milk or cream- like 2-4 tbsp.
Cheese- I use 1-2 handfuls
Cooked and diced turkey bacon- one package
Pack of tortillas

I cook the veggies until they're soft in some olive oil, add in the whisked eggs and milk.
Cook eggs until almost done.
Add in cheese, then cooked turkey bacon.
Warm up some tortillas- we use whole wheat or sprouted grain tortillas. Then I fill each tortilla, roll 'em up, and let them cool on the counter top. Once they're cool, wrap in seran wrap and place in the freezer. To thaw, put in the microwave for 1-3 mintues- you'll need to test this. We microwave ours between 1:30-2 minutes (I think...), but it depends on your micro and how large your burritos are.

There you have it! A breakfast burrito on the go with a side of radiation..kidding..kind of.
