A small Menu and Homemade Breakfast Burritos

Hey y'all! How was your week? It has been busy here!
Seems like we have had something going on every day these last few weeks! 

I am longing for slower days, crisp air, leaves falling, my favorite time of year is just around the corner, and I can not wait! 

Lets take a peek in to our school week...
This week in school we are working on the Eclipse obviously, but also so much more! 

Oliver is perfecting his time telling skills in Math, devouring all the books he can get his hands on for Reading, working his way through the Magic School Bus series (books and shows) for Science, painting some for Art, learning about families, oceans, maps, etc.. in Social Studies and Geography, and so much more. 
He also did another Fairy Garden that he wants to enter in to the Fair. 

Abbey is working on Ratios in Math, Painting and Hiding Rocks for Art, Reading a My America book for History and a Harry Potter book for pleasure, and much more. 
She also got accepted in to Honors 4-H, helped work on the Fair Youth Board, had a Fine Arts class, and made another Fairy Garden to enter in the Fair! 

We have a lot going on this week but I did pull together a bit of a meal plan so I thought I would share a little bit of that. 

Breakfast Burritos(recipe below) 
Omelet with Toast 
Premier Shake 

Eat Out 

Chick-Fil-A Nuggets with Waffle Fries(recipe coming soon) 

Turkey Kielbasa, Taters, and Kraut in the Crock-pot 

Marinated Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Squash and Zucchini

Eat Out (We have a small back to school shopping trip planned along with Family Day so we will eat while we are out.)

Big Daddys cooking night(his schedule has changed were he will be home another night and he is going to take over dinner that night. He really doesn't like to plan ahead so we will pick up something when we are out shopping the day before!) 

Birthday Party(We will eat dinner at the party) 

Hamburger Patty with Sweet Potato Fries 

Friday I made some of my friend Aprils Breakfast Burritos to go in the freezer. Super simple and yummy! I wanted to share the recipe with y'all! 

  • 1 lb Pork Breakfast Sausage(I used Jimmy Dean all natural)
  • 1 bag Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hashbrowns
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk 
  • 10-12 Flour Tortillas 
  • Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese 

In a large skillet or pot add the sausage, break it up, and then add the hashbrowns. 
Allow these to cook until the pork is no longer pink and fully cooked. 

Crack the eggs in to a bowl, whisk the milk in. 
Add the eggs to the sausage/hashbrown mixture.
Allow to cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are fully cooked. 

Lay out your tortillas and add the filling with some cheese on each one, then fold up. 

I wrapped them up in plastic wrap and then froze them in a freezer bag. 

The kids had one this morning, we put it on defrost for about a minute and then we cooked it about 2 minutes. 

Definitely a keeper and will make again!

Menu 8-7/8-13-17

Hello Friends!

One week in to August already! I can't believe it!

Even though we Homeschool year round now, after being in public school all my life I still feel as though I should be getting ready for back to school! We are currently moving right along with 2nd grade and 7th grade. I can not express enough how much we love the freedom that comes with Homeschooling. It has absolutely helped our family in many ways!

I am currently sitting in the school room as I write this blog. I have been in here most of the day, doing some school with Oliver(Abbey was gone to a 4-H Day of Service), cleaning up, getting things better organized, etc..
Yesterday, I got some motivation to start back with this blog. A Homeschool Mom friend of mine said that she was going to be posting on a Facebook page to keep track of their Homeschool happenings for her kids to look back on. And it made me think, I already started a blog and I pay for this website every year so, why not pick up where I left off and get back to something I enjoyed! I still want to post meal plans, recipes, school happenings, adventures, etc...

So here we go! I thought I would jump back in with a simple meal plan for the week.
I am only doing 5 days because we have a Baby Shower and Birthday party this week.

Premier Shakes
Oatmeal with fruit
Cereal with fruit
Omelets (Ok, don't laugh but, we have recently discovered making omelets with bacon bits and my kids love them!)

Leftovers are the main thing!
Snack Plates (Fruits, Veggies, Pepperoni, Pretzels, etc...)


Chicken Salad - I am basically taking some of those Tyson Chicken that I bought on sale at Kroger and putting it in a Salad. Easy/Lazy dinner.

Pinto Beans, Cornbread, Sauerkraut and Wienies, Fried Taters (Big Daddys request for his one night off)

Buffalo Chicken with Sweet Potatoes (recipe)

Pork Chops with Veggies

Pizza Casserole(Recipe coming soon)

We hope you all have a great week!
