Announcing lamb + wolf Etsy Shop

Okay, okay… I’ve had an Etsy shop for quite some time now, but I have only recently really started stocking it since I started dyeing a few months ago. I just got a new shipment of yarn bases and will be adding new items over the next few weeks, so please keep an eye out for new shop updates! I also take custom orders, so please contact me if you wish to do so.

Knitted Gifts for the Holidays

Glühwein Cowl

Every time I knit something for myself, eventually someone will ask me where I got it, if I made it and tell me that they love it. This usually ends in me giving it to them. This year I have decided to make knitted gifts for friends and family… on purpose.

I’m loving this pattern, Gluhwein. It combines my love of knitting with bulky yarn and my lack of attention span to knit large projects. It has a beautiful diamond pattern combing knit and purl textures. I can’t wait to see how the finished product turns out.

Do you make homemade gifts for the holidays? I’d love to hear all about your craftiness!

Quick & Easy Breakfast Burritos

Now that my lovely 7 month old daughter is crawling and all over the place, I’m finding less time for preparing myself breakfast (or lunch for that matter). I wanted something that was hot, quick, and easy to prepare while I chase my little one around the floor. I’ve made breakfast burritos before, but never thought of freezing them. Then again, there are tons of frozen breakfast foods, so why not? I have made full fat versions before, but opted for a lower carb, lower fat version this time around.

Here is my quick and easy recipe (along with some optional additions) for breakfast burritos:

Breakfast Burritos for Freezing

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs Jimmy Dean’s reduced fat pork sausage
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 4 oz can of chopped jalapenos
  • 16 medium soft tortillas
  • 16 slices of sharp cheddar made with skim milk (I used Kraft brand)
  • 1 bag of shredded hash browns (optional… I did not use this, but have before)

Directions:

  1. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, or an electrical skillet over 375. Brown the sausage, and drain on a paper towel. Set aside.
  2. OPTIONAL: If you decide to use hash browns, cook them now on med-high heat on the skillet or 450 on an electric skillet as the package directions dictate.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt & pepper
  4. If you used hash browns, leave them in the pan. If not, your pan or skillet will be empty. Add back in the sausage, then pour the egg mixture over the top. Add the jalepenos and mix. Lower the heat to medium-low to evenly cook the eggs. Cook as if you were cooking scrambled eggs, by scraping the pan every few minutes until eggs are cooked all the way through. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Take 1 tortilla and add about 1/3 cup of the egg mixture, top with 1 slice of cheese, then roll up into a burrito.
  6. Wrap each burrito individually with Saran Wrap, then place into a large freezer bag for freezing.

Reheating Instructions:

  1. Remove your burrito from the Saran Wrap and wrap in a paper towel. 
  2. Microwave for 45 seconds on high
  3. Flip the burrito on to the other side and cook for an additional 45 seconds.

That’s it! Enjoy!
