As I was doing research for this blog, I came across some other sites of laid off bloggers that were inspirational, creative, and therapeutic. One site I stumbled across is The Simple Dollar, written by Trent, who found himself in "financial Armageddon" and thus decided to start his blog, offering sound financial advice for the rest of us. My favorite find, however, was his recipe for bulk breakfast burritos made on the cheap. My husband, who has been known to stop at a McDonald's or Maverick for a breakfast burrito from time to time, was all over me trying out this healthier, cheaper option.

I've actually made them twice now, the first time with the black beans like the recipe indicates and the second time (photo above) with shredded ham instead of the beans. We both agree the bean option is better and probably healthier for you. Also, we added a bit of shredded cheddar cheese and a few shakes of Tapatio for spiciness. I halved the recipe, since the recipe actually makes 32 burritos (a bit much for my small family), so while I should've been able to make around 16 burritos, I only wound up with 10. I think I may be putting too much egg mixture into the shell, but, damn, it's worth it.
