Freezer Meals: Breakfast Burritos

Freezer Meals: Grab-n- Go Breakfast Burritos
photo from: anyone can cook

Right now my family is in the grab and dash era.  Between college, early morning seminary and an even earlier morning paper route in addition to full time jobs, being able to grab something more than a pop-tart is critical in the morning. I always need quick breakfast ideas and I love to make freezer meals, so   I wondered why in the world I had never stocked the freezer before with these yummy eat on the way burritos.

The nice thing is they are SO quick and easy to prepare.  You can make any kind of variation depending on taste preferences and what leftovers or produce you need to use up.  So use these directions as a guideline but feel free to use your imagination.

Portable Sick Caddy

With cold and flu season coming up, it's a great time to make a carry around portable tote that is stocked with all the supplies a family member would need to have bed (or couch) side when they are feeling under the weather.



I like to make 2 kinds:
1) One for the house that is easy to tote around.

Grab a plastic shower caddy for around $2.00 if you don't have one. It's worth it to have the grab and go handle.

2) A mini version to mail off to college students or send along with a traveling family member.

I send off in a plastic pencil case box to my college aged children or anyone traveling, so when a cold or flu strikes they don't have to crawl their way to a store to pick up supplies while they feel yucky. Having a "go to" box with all the basics will get them feeling some relief right away.


What you store in yours is completely dependent upon the age of your family members.
For children you may want a few fun things to do and less medication stored in it, for teens and adults you may want more over the counter medications in there within reach.

I'll share a few ideas to get you started.
Printable List

Sick Caddy Inventory Ideas:

MUST HAVE:

Tissues.
Thermometer/disposable thermometer covers.
Cough drops/syrup/vitamin C drops
Water bottle
Hand Sanitizer
Lip balm
The doctors and pharmacy phone numbers written on card and taped to the caddy.
For college student caddy include a copy of the insurance card too.
Bendy Straws. (I insist on bendy straws when sick. perfect for taking sips of water/juice while lying down, plus they are more fun)

ADULTS/TEENS

Over the Counter Medications:
pain relievers
fever reducers
decongestants/cold medications
(both day time and night time versions)
Stomach relievers such as Pepto Bismal
anti acids
anti diarrhea

YOUNG CHILDREN

I always grab a few new dollar store toys/activities that they have never played with before.
It's nice to have some options when they've watched too much tv but can't run around yet.

books
crayons/coloring books
Puzzle books
puzzles
slinkies
silly putty/comic section of newspaper.

Some additions to keep on hand:
Face masks
Canned or instant soups
Decaffeinated tea
Heat or ice pack
Toilet paper (I know obvious but still...)
Household cleaners (seriously, I have a vomit cleaner kit separate. They always end up on the carpet.)
Paper towels
