Standard

Another recipe blog!
πŸ™‚
Because when you announce that you are goingto begin doing weekly themed blogs you DO that…..
Once a month.
Apparently.
Sigh.
So, here we go. Another child-pleasing healthy meal idea with an easy-peasy dessert or snack recipe included! This is a lunch time hit at our house. πŸ™‚
Ground Turkey & Cheese Burritos:(enough to make 8)
Ingredients:
2 pounds ground turkey
1 package large soft tortillas
1 bag shredded cheddar cheese or taco cheese (or shred your own, 2 cups worth)
2 packets taco seasoning.
1)Buy two of these.
turkey
Cook in a skillet until browned on med high heat.
2)Lower heat. Add 1 1/2 cups water and two of these.(any brand. These were on sale. I usually make my own seasoning but I ran out and this was faster.)

Use your spatula to blend water with meat and seasoning until coated well.
Let it simmer a bit until water is cooked away and meat is scrum-diddly-ishis looking.
Like this:

3) Plop some of the yumminess on your tortilla in a line in the middle of your tortilla leaving a small space at one end for folding. Sprinkle cheese over meat mixture. Lots. Because cheese is the greatest thing ever.

4) Roll up your burrito like you are supposed to. Side,bottom, side. If you don’t know how, it’s just like swaddling a baby. If you don’t know how to swaddle a baby either well then, I just can’t help you. Go google it or something.
You can add extras like jalpenos or hot sauce or whatever. We keep these pretty basic at our house so the kids will eat them. πŸ™‚

A bag of banana chips
unsalted butter or coconut oil
cinnamon

1) Get these.

Lick one and stick it to your baby daughters face because you have the sense of humor of a 11 year old boy. Snort. Peel it off and feed it to the dog. Then pour the rest of the banana chips onto a couple of cookie sheet pans while your oven pre heats to 350 degrees.
2) In a small sauce pan, combine 3 TBSP unsalted butter or coconut oil with a dash of vanilla extract and 1 1/2 TBSP of ground cinnamon. Simmer and stir til melted and blended. Attempt to take picture. Realize how shitty your kitchen lighting is. Attempt ten more pictures. Finally give up and post blurry one on your blog.

3) Drizzle over banana chips. Use a spoon to blend a bit so all are coated. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes until they are dry and golden.
