I got home from work today and had nothing important to do, yay!!!! Now that my paper is finished, my summer is wide open! It’s time for fun and ice cream sandwiches and jello shots, there are some good things in your future. Vacation hangover finished.
You know how I used to make you tons and tons of quinoa recipes? Move aside quinoa, it’s overnight oatmeal time! Forever and ever. Quinoa isn’t over, it just needed a time out for a few months. Now that it is summer I really enjoy leafy salads instead of grain based salads with cooked vegetables; much needed in the winter, not so much in the summer.
No worries my friends, I have some fantastic ideas for fall overnight oats including those with pumpkin spice and apple pie. Those are fall flavors and I don’t want to rush, I’m way too into summer to rush into fall! There maybe one more I might make, but an unhealthy, decadent overnight oatmeal. Until then, you’ll have to make due with this delicious version that’s a little bit decadent. Creamy coconut milk mixed with chopped strawberries and coconut flakes make a delicious treat (and mostly healthful) way to start your day!
