Day 24 was full of oldies and goodies……..
Breakfast was chorizo and egg (the oldie) along with sweet potato cinnamon hashies (the goodie).
Jeremiah actually took this picture of his chorizo and eggs and was so proud of it that he begged me to put it in. I told him of course.
The hashies were so good they didn’t even make it to the kid’s plates. They just kept coming up to the serving plate over and over and stealing them. Apparently they liked them!
What a fun breakfast this is. And so SIMPLE!
You can fancy this up as much as you want or keep it simple. However you make it, you’re going to want to make this breakfast pizza again and again.
Here’s what you need (For 5 people):
salt and pepper
1/4 pound of chorizo
half an onion, coarsely chopped
handful of grape tomatoes, halved
optional: 1 mango, diced
optional: 2 kiwis, diced Continue reading

Our day 21 started out really early as Jeremiah had an 8am basketball game and Shiloh had cheer duty.
Thankfully everyone loves chorizo and eggs and it is a really fast and easy breakfast to make. You can see by their faces they were still a little groggy as they enjoyed their breakfast.
After breakfast we rushed out to cheer on the Green Wave, Jeremiah’s upward team and to watch Shiloh cheer. They both did a wonderful job and were really cute doing it.
Levi “happily” sat on the sidelines cheering his big brother and sister on.

It seems we have been having some rather slow days lately but let me assure you, this was NOT one of those days! We ate GOOD today people!
Breakfast was your basic chorizo and egg. I say basic because it is the easiest and fastest thing in the world to make. I have been eating it for breakfast since my pediatrician released me to eat real food around the ripe old age of 1. Seriously. Chorizo and egg was a staple in my Mexican home growing up and I will say again how GLAD I am that it is such a basic food that I can enjoy it even while eating well. I am also very GLAD that my kids can’t get enough of chorizo and eggs like their momma. Must be the Mexican in em!
I knew going in to lunch that I was taking a risk. A big risk. On many levels. What was the risk I was joyfully walking in to? Stuffed poblano peppers. Why is this a risk? Well, first of all I’ve never made them. Second of all, I’ve never eaten them! Yes, I know, it’s humiliating. I was not the most risky of an eater growing up. I was the kid who went to a mexican restaurant and ordered the chicken strips. Sad. Very sad. As I grew up and matured by leaps and bounds I began trying, and loving, new foods. One food I never did get around to trying was stuffed poblano peppers. Well, I guess I can’t say that anymore. I know not only have made them, I have EATEN them too!
Oh, to get back to my risks. The third reason this meal was a risk? The kids. I am blessed with non-picky-for-the-most-part kids but stuffed poblano peppers? I really was happily trudging along until I took a bit of one and realized DANG, these have a kick to them! Yeah, the kids...it was now an issue of would these be too hot for the kids?!
