Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I am not way to busy to actually do a decent job of "not me" Monday this week.

I am not hiding in Luke's office supposed to be doing paperwork, playing with my blog, eating a milky way dark that I hid from Josie so she wouldn't ask for some. Not me!

I am not insanely hot after watering plants and considering jumping in Josie's inflatable pool that has a water temp of 55 degrees at the moment because I just filled it up. Who wouldn't love to see an 8+ month pregnant woman leaping about in freezing water in a soggy tank top and Bermuda sweats? Not me!

Tonight on the harvest menu, breakfast burritos, Doritos, cucumber slices & blueberries, and lemon bars (all food must be able to be eaten while on the go). This is quite literally the recipe I made (I have about 30 burritos on hand, they freeze well), I think you could easily 1/2 or 1/4 it. Not fancy but good!

Breakfast Burritos

2 18 pack eggs
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
3 package regular Jimmy Dean sausage
2 larger cans Ortega green chilies
1 average size bag red potatoes
2 average packages shredded Mexican blend cheese
2-3 packages flour tortillas (you can fill them as much or as little as you want).
canola oil for frying

Cut up potatoes into cubes and put in about 1 inch of canola oil in large dutch oven. Commence to frying, with lid on to cook them till they're falling apart with crispy bits.

Begin browning sausage in another dutch oven. Once sausage is browned drain. In large bowl mix eggs with milk, salt and pepper. Add to sausage in pot and scramble. Once firm add green chillies. Don't forget the potatoes. Once fork tender or visibly falling apart drain off oil, pat dry with paper towel and add to dutch oven with sausage/egg/chili mixture. To all of this, add cheese. Mix well.

I like to microwave my tortillas about a minuet so they're warm and you can roll them easier. I put about 1/2-3/4 cup mix in each tortilla fold in the sides and roll them up. Then I roll them in tin foil. They last a week in the fridge or longer in the freezer (in a freezer bag). We like them for dinner with salsa and sour cream.
