Good morning! How is everyone enjoying their summer? I’m loving this heat right now. No, really I am. In just a few short months it will be damn freezing and snowing and just be awful so I want to soak up every little bit of summer that I can. We recently got back from vacation to Ocean City, Maryland. We go every year with my family and it’s quite nice. We stay at a great place called Castle in the Sand and have been going there since I as about 8. We love it there and look forward to it every year. What are your vacation traditions? I’m getting the travel itch again, so we booked a very short trip to New Orleans in September and I am really looking forward to it. I’ve never been there and I’m really looking for some suggestions on what to do to make the most of my trip. Please let us know of anything that you know of.
Well, anyways, on these Overnight Oats. I have seen them popping up all over the place on the web lately. They are so easy and you really can make them to suit anyone’s needs. I’m usually not a huge fan of oatmeal and I know that it is very good for and filling and blah, blah, blah. This way of preparing oats really is fantastic. It’s filling, refreshing, so so easy, you can easily adapt this many different ways. You could add strawberries, blueberries, apple, chocolate chips, peanut butter, jelly, marshmellow, the list could go on forever. These are probably ingredients that you have in your cupboard so go make this tonight!
Here’s a few notes about this recipe: You’ll get the best texture using the old-fashioned oats. Use a base recipe of 1:1:1 for the milk, oats and yogurt. Make sure to give it a good stir in the morning before you dig in. Now start your day off right with this delicious, nutritious recipe!
