Attempting to jump on the meal plan band wagon!

Since the start of the New Year I have been seeing lots of posts about meal planning on Facebook and blogs.  Has your family had any successful meal planning menus?  Honestly, I haven’t been very consistent.  Last week I had a great week planning wise, I even went to far as to meal plan my breakfasts!  Working midnights, maintaining some kind of eating schedule is my biggest challenge.  I have started working on smaller meals throughout the day.  On mornings I work I try to eat breakfast at 5am and that seems to set my schedule for the rest of the day.  Last week I decided that I wanted more of a variety for breakfast.  I saw this recipe on Mom on Time Out and decided to tweak it for my liking.  I headed off to Big Y to get my supplies!

I got sausage, precooked bacon shredded cheese, eggs and 8-inch tortilla rounds.  I started off browning half of the pork sausage roll in my pre-heated skillet.

Once the sausage was browned I lined a bowl with a paper towel and set it aside to cool.  Next thing I did was get my scrambled eggs ready!  I made my scrambled eggs  with just American Cheese.  Then I let these cool before I made my wraps.

I set out my tortilla rounds on wax paper so I could wrap them easier.   I have yet to master how the heck to wrap up these things, these might be a tad overloaded.

Like I said I can’t wrap these things to save my life!  Thank goodness these actually closed, there was much man handling and coercing for these to close.  Next time I might have to watch a few YouTube videos on how this is actually done.  This one actually doesn’t look too bad.  I was quite proud of this one!

After I tackled the folding, I wrapped them in the wax paper, sealed them with tape, labeled them and threw them in the freezer.

To reheat these I placed them frozen in the microwave for 45 seconds, then I flipped them over and microwaved for another 45 seconds and they were perfect!  I was so excited that these turned out to be so good.  It’s a nice to have more of a variety to quick breakfasts than just cereal and chocolate chip muffins.  What kind of quick fixes does your family do for breakfast?
