My mom an I enjoy going to a place called Hot Head Burritos. We usually get a lil bowl with either brown or white rice, pinto or black beans, and our choice of meat and toppings.
You can use this recipe to be the base of your own burrito bowl. It would be delicious with taco meat or chicken ranch taco meat. You can use either black or pinto beans. It’s up to you to decide what type of toppings are on your burrito bowl.
Some topping ideas are: lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, pico, sour cream, corn, and guacamole. Yum!
As you can see being gluten free does not have to be boring.
When my boys went to Boy Scout Camp, I needed to make sure they had a personal first aid kit. I knew there was going to be an infirmity if they had a serious injury. All they needed was band-aids, first aid ointment, and something to clean up his injury.
So we headed to the Dollar Tree to get those items plus a container.
I almost got a sandwich container to hold of the items in the first aid kit. The Imaginative One who is the Boy Scout veteran told me that the sandwich container was going to be too big.
Then I realized there was school supplies in the store. I decided using a pencil bag would be compact enough.
All of the first aid items that I put in the kit. We also got them so medication for bug bites.
All of the items were bought at the Dollar Store. Each kit was about $4.83. (The sanitizer came in a pack of 3 and I put half of the wipes in each kit.)
I love this idea that I came up with and am planning to make one of those kits for my desk at work. I’m going to add an eye glass kit to my kit. My students are always asking for band-aids. The clinic gives us a limited amount of band-aids at the beginning of the year. Once those are gone, I’ll use band-aids from the Dollar Tree.
I think I’m going to also make a hygiene kit with another pencil bag. In the bag, I would put a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, breath mint strips, deodorant, and a brush.
The Imaginative One is now in Boy Scouts and goes on hikes. One of the hiking trips requires him to carry all of his supplies and food for the weekend. Trail mix is one of the easiest items to carry. We make our own so we can customize it to his likes. Continue reading Trail Mix (Easy Snack and DIY)→
The other day I went an event. They served frozen lasagna. It made me crave homemade lasagna so I decided make some. I asked Hubby to get me the ingredients for my lasagna. Rather then using store bought sauce, I decided to use myspaghetti sauce recipe. I adapted the recipe for the pressure cooker.
The kitchen smelled amazing as it cooked! This is an easy recipe to put together. If you don’t want to use the pressure cooker, click on the link to the original recipe.
I use an Electric Pressure Cooker.
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Stars of the recipe:
1 (28 oz.) or 2 (14.5 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes
Making your own spice blends is so easy. You can customize the amount of the spices. Hubby doesn’t really like cumin so I put on a trace amount in my taco seasoning. He enjoys when I make tacos because he knows it’s customized to his liking. I haven’t bought taco seasoning in years.
Here are some of the spice blends I’ve shared over the years.
