Labor Day weekend is over. I am in mourning.
First, I am not ready to get back to work after the 3 day weekend. I’m just not.
Secondly, I just can’t believe its already September.
How is 2016 flying back so quickly?
I already ad my first PSL of the year!!! It was bliss. But let’s be honest, I did feel kinda gross afterwards. My body was like, “what have you done?!?!” So much sugar in a drink! So much fat! Def a treat from my black coldbrews. ha!
Anyway, it feels like everything is speeding by so quickly. I can’t believe it. I am going to have a 3 year old soon. I can’t even think about it. (Nor, can I deal with the fact that Autumn is back in a crib… I’ll save that for another post!) And biggest of all, we’ll have a house soon!!! It makes me so super excited to think about it.
Then I’ll be busy with that and speed will fly by and ugh, I can’t think about it!!
The #1 thing I can’t think about is buying so much stuff for the house.
Actually, that will be loads of fun. But bye-bye money!
My husband has started a mega list of things we need and want for the house from the refrigerator, sofa, storage options in the garage, and the rain barrels we plan to get. It’s all about staying on budget and watching out for sales!
Thankfully, we have been living at my Dad’s since moving down to FL so we are saying loads of money on rent (thanks Dad!) so that is a huge help for us.
As well, I have been doing my best to cut out getting breakfast out. Making quick stops to Starbucks or Dunkin’ or the local deli just kills the budget. $4 here. $7 here. $5 here. It all adds up.
So, these freezer burritos are a big help with saving money and for making the mornings a lot more manageable too. We can toss the burritos in the microwave while getting ready and they are done in just a few minutes, ready to enjoy!
I layered the ingredients on the burrito but I think I will mix everything together and then fill the burritos for a more even bite. But, it all works!
I hope these Freezer Breakfast Burritos will speed up your morning and put a bit of pep into your step with a quick, affordable breakfast.

Delicious and definitely a time saver if you are rushed in the morning. Me? Hey I’m retired so I can have these at a very leisurely pace when I eventually crawl my butt out of bed.
