Easy-Freezy Breakfast Burritos

Freezy Burrito alt

Make a big batch of this burrito filling on the weekend, roll up the filled burritos in foil, place them in the freezer, and bam! Breakfast all week is solved. Or in a pinch, we love these for dinner!

For my picky preschooler, I leave the scrambled tofu rather plain – just a dash of turmeric for color. Feel free to add additional spices or chopped veggies for older kids and grown-ups. We like to use the slightly-sweet breakfast sausage from Field Roast for these burritos.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups frozen hash browns
  • 6 ounces chopped vegan breakfast sausage
  • 1 (14-ounce) package firm tofu
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 to 8 flour tortillas
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the hash browns and cook for 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in the chopped sausage and cook for an additional 3 to 4minutes, until browned.
  3. Mash the tofu with a fork until it resembles scrambled eggs. Add to the pan, along with the turmeric and salt. Cook for a final few minutes until heated through.
  4. Warm the tortillas for about 15 seconds each in the microwave. Divide the filling evenly among tortillas – depending how stuffed you want your burritos, you’ll have enough to fill 6 to 8 tortillas.
  5. Roll up in foil. Store in the fridge up to 3 days, or place in the freezer until ready to eat!

 

Toilet Paper Roll Binoculars

Binoculars (6)

At last! Spring has sprung, and we are eager to look for signs of it on these first warm days. It was the perfect chance to put together some easy homemade binoculars before setting off into the woods!

To make the binoculars, you’ll need three toilet paper tubes. Cut one of them open down the middle and leave the other two intact.

Glue the two whole rolls together with hot glue. Affix the open tube on top with more hot glue (this is a grown-up step!).

Travis loved decorating his binocs since we had puffy bug stickers.

Perfect for spring!

All we needed as the finishing touch was a string for around his neck, which I affixed with a little more hot glue.

Then it was time to head out. Travis loved peering through the “lenses” for the first signs of spring!
