What I would give to wake up with rolling rrrrrâ€™s and doinâ€™ the Flamenco just out of pure morning energy! But alas, I am doomed to dragging my sleepy head all the time at 5am with half a functioning brain, one eye open and barely there energy to zoom through a busy morning. Â School officially started yesterday for my 10-yr old son who is in 4th grade.Â This also means Iâ€™m back to waking up at an ungodly hour to prepare his uniform, pack his lunch, make breakfast and get his school stuff sorted out. Now I am regretting the fact that I shouldâ€™ve ironed out his school uniform last night instead of catching up on a few hours of sleep.
Oh, wait a minute …Â I was up all night putting name labels and plastic covers on all his books and notebooks! PffftÂ …Â I knew there was a reason why I feel this crappy at the moment. Iâ€™m tired and on top of that, I am also sick. But, as they always say … there is no rest for the wicked and no time to get sick or tired when youâ€™re a single mother.
And for that , I deserve a good breakfast and then maybe sneak off to bed for a few hours and power snooze? Maybe… I knowÂ I need to go see the doctor and bring my dog to the vet Â and run around to accompany my mom to wherever it was she told me yesterday to take her to. Oh, well… there goes my nap!
I need something to pick me up this morning and help me rev up for a long day! Brrrrrreakfast burrrritos sounds so good right now! Mexican food always seem to put that delectable zing and a delicious punch on any meal of the day. And if you like burritos you sure would love breakfast burritos. However, Iâ€™d lay off on the breakfast margarita ! Haha!
Yesterday was a bittersweet day for me. I just realized my son is no longer a baby. I just transferred him to a new school this yearÂ because I wanted him to get used to a BIG school. Thinking that I should have a bit of talk with his class adviser over a few things, I took my son to his classroom and, yeah okay … I was mothering him. I asked him how come he was looking all grumpy and he said : â€œ Coz youâ€™re making me nervous.â€Â Uh, okay …Â â€œ Why am I making you nervous?â€ I asked , then he goes â€œ Itâ€™s coz youâ€™re making me look like such a baby, mom!â€Â I seriously nearly choked on that.Â It was the first time heâ€™s ever reacted that way. Usually, he would be happy to sit with me or just cling all over.
I am feeling a bit better about it today, knowing heâ€™s got his act together and enough self confidence to brave through a new environment.Â Heâ€™s just my lil breakfast burrito,Â A sweet little package that has all the comforting ingredients,Â loaded with everything you need to get you going and still pack a punch to show you what heâ€™s really made of.
3/4 pound chorizo sausage, casings removed and crumbled
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 green chile pepper, seeded and diced
4 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1.Generously coat a large frying pan with butter. Cook and stir chorizo over medium high heat until well browned and crumbled. Add onion and chile pepper, and continue cooking until onion is tender.
2.Beat eggs in a bowl, and add to chorizo mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until eggs are scrambled and no longer runny.
3.Warm flour tortillas in the microwave or on a griddle for 30 seconds. Spoon mixture into the middle of each tortilla and top with shredded Cheddar cheese. Roll up like a burrito top with salsa and a dollop of sour cream, Sprinkle with some chives and enjoy!
