Breakfast Burritos

The tots made these burritos!;) M requested breakfast burritos and I immediately thought they would have eggs, cheese, sausage and/or bacon, salsa, and tater tots! These were so easy and the longest part was waiting for the oven to heat up and then for the tots to bake. I will have to make these and variations of this more often. Oh, look at what my hairdresser gave me – my very first basil plant! Lets hope that I have the ability to keep it alive…I’ve never had any kind of plant to take care of.  I’ll make sure to keep you posted on its progress:) Thanks for reading!


Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix

Quick Post: Ranch dressing mix isn’t something I use often enough to warrant making, but I’ve become a bit of a food snob! When I think of the junk that is in that packet (like MSG for instance) my skin crawls. Now, yes it would have been much more cost-effective to just use the packet that I have (it’s at least four years old…no expiration date) but I decided to look for a recipe instead. A few bucks, and a flat of Mason jars later I have a mix full of flavor and no MSG! It smells fresh and I’m not afraid to use it!;) More on what I’m using this for later this week! Thanks for reading, enjoy:)
