Breakfast Burritos

While living at my mom's house last year during our house disaster this is what I made everyone for breakfast on April Fool's Day. Yes the above picture is just scrambled eggs with food coloring. I tried to make it look like ground turkey. My kids are used to that around our house. When my oldest woke up I told him we were having dinner for breakfast. He was not happy and still a little sleepy. After he took the first bite he didn't like it. Then I told him it was just eggs, so he took another bite. He said it still didn't taste that good but he finished it anyways. My other kids thought it was fun and liked the joke and so did the rest of my family that was living there at the time. I hope this Sunday you'll have fun with it. Happy Early April Fool's!

April Fool's Breakfast Burritos

Rice milk
Red, green, and orange food coloring
Whole wheat or brown rice tortillas
Cheese, shredded

Whisk eggs and a little milk together with a few drops of each of the food coloring. If the color isn't just right add a few more drops, but not too much. Pour mixture into a hot pan on the stove. Continue scrapping the bottom of the pan until the eggs are completely cooked through. Arrange eggs, salsa or ketchup, and cheese in tortilla to look like a normal burrito. Serve and enjoy!!

Shamrock Pancakes

WOW!! that little break turned into a HUGE break! I'm glad to be back. I've been doing lots in the kitchen, more mishaps than anything else but that's okay because when you finally get a recipe right you know it's got to be good. :]

So in Lu of St. Patrick's Day, which is this Saturday, I thought I would should you what I do every year for breakfast. I've seen a bunch of other things on pinterest that are really cute, But I think I'll still stick with the shamrock shaped ones. They're just so cute!

When everything is mixed together put about 5 drops of green food coloring into batter. You can add more or less if you want to. It depends on how green you would like them.

Making the shamrock shape

Use a large spoon. Fill it will batter. Drop a circle of batter down on the griddle and pull down to the left center. Then with more batter, drop another circle of batter off to the left of the first circle and pull some down to the right center. This should make a small heart shape. Repeat action on both sides of your first little heart and finish with a little tail coming from the middle of each of the heart shape and pulling down. Now you have your shamrock. It will take a few tries and if you need to go a little slower, turn the temperature of your griddle down a little so the first little heart shape won't cook so quickly. Once you've got the action down it goes really quick.

Have a fun and healthy St. Patrick's Day!!
