Happy Friday, friends! What is the good word? Can I guess? Is it weekend?? :) It is a long weekend for me and a lot of other New Englanders in honor of Patriot's Day. I don't know much about Patriot's Day except that is also Boston Marathon day and means a long weekend. I'm ok with that.
I don't have much to talk about in addition to the exciting three day weekend except a favorite new breakfast of mine - overnight oatmeal. Overnight oatmeal is not a new concept to me and certainly is not a new concept to the blog world. For some reason, though, I have just fallen in love with it this week.
The first of my recent forays into the overnight oatmeal world involved 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup unsweetened plain soymilk, dash of vanilla and tons of cinnamon. I mixed all of the ingredients well and let them sit overnight in the fridge. Upon waking, I had a delicious, pudding-like breakfast that I amped up with a banana and some peanut butter. Tasty!
This morning, I used the same overnight mix but then this morning I mixed in some delicious cranberry, cherry and almond muesli and served the oats in a nearly empty peanut butter jar. The muesli was an awesome decision - it added some texture to the oats and sweetness from the dried fruit. Yum. (Sorry no picture, I was in scarf mode this morning).
Do you guys like overnight oats? Have any combinations for me to try?
Have a great evening!
