Crock Pot Burritos

Here's the crock pot, taco-ish recipe I promised. Didn't you know I wouldn't let you down? I would have posted yesterday, but I had to much excitement. I did something I hadn't done in 10 years, and never thought I would do again... I got a school picture taken. I thought I would get out of it because I'm only subbing, but I walked by the library at the wrong time and got caught by the principal. I had on a dirty 'ol t-shirt and looked terrible. My picture wasn't good, but there was an up side. I got to talk to the photographer and see Sophie's picture... and it was really good (which is very surprising because for being such a beauty, she sure takes goofy pictures most of the time!) Something else exciting happened too. I would like to announce Chase's on day 3 of no pacifier to go to bed. I know it was a bad mom of me to still let him have it since he turned 3, but it was his last link to baby-hood and I didn't want to let it go. I bought him the book Baby's Binky Box and he excitedly made his tired paci a box to permanently sleep in. I envisioned sleepless nights of pitiful crying, but so far we've had none. We even had a great meal to round off the day. There's nothing like coming home to a house full of taco-ish smells. I had a yummy meal on the table quickly and everyone enjoyed it. There's even a big bag of the leftovers in the freezer waiting for a busy night. How much better can you get than that? Enjoy :)


CROCK POT BURRITOS
1 lb ground beef, cooked and drained

Looks good but I'll be honest I want that cheesy hamburger hash recipe. I don't even like ground beef but it looks REALLY good and one that ALL 3 of the kiddos would like!

Happy to hear you had a great day!

Ingrid- You have to wait until tomorrow for the cheesy hamburger hash... I didn't mean to tease you with the picture :) It was very good. I'm actually eating the leftovers right now for my lunch and I wish I had more!

Looks really good! I love using my crockpot!! My daughter is almost 4 and still has her paci at night. I might buy that book for her. The dentist said she could have it until she is 4, which is next month. I fear for the backlash, but am comforted by the fact that it is going so well for you so far!

Rachel said...

My husband walked by as I pulled up your blog and was drooling at the sight of your burritos!

Congrats to Chase...that's great that he's doing so well with giving up the pacifier!!!

Rachel said...

What a nice crock recipe! We love burritos at our house but I have never made them this way. Thanks!

It was fun to read about your day! ;0)

Kara said...

Looks really yummy! And I love that you can freeze it for busy nights. Perfect!

As a former teacher, I can relate on the yearbook photo. Every year. It wasn't bad enough to have to "yearbook" myself from the ages of 5 to 18, I had to submit to school photography once again as an adult! Yuck.

Congrats on kicking the binky! It sounds like your son took it like a pro.

Love this recipe! It looks really yummy!

Lara said...

Congrats on being binky free! It sounds like a good non-traumatic transition. The burritos look yummy and anything that goes in the crockpot is a good thing in my book!

This sounds so and and SO easy (right up my alley)! I think I may already have the ingredients lying around--so I'm totally going to throw this together this weekend. Thanks!!!

Burritos in a crock pot, sounds perfect to me.. Looking forward to your cheeseburger hash type post, yum.

Mary said...

Yum! I made a burrito-ish dish the other day too - haven't gotten around to posting it yet. Love throwing it all in the crockpot!

I'll bet your picture was fine! I can understand waiting on the pacifier. My grandson just turned 2 and he loves his still! I've not heard of that book before, will have to check that out. It might work, though his infant sister might present a problem with the retirement lol!

Have a great weekend.
