It’s been a while since you’ve seen anything from “the kitchen” side of this blog. Well, to be honest, I’m in a state of loathing the idea of cooking. 6b7043f47bc621875e8febebb9856b50It’s a combination of being exhausted by the day’s end, from chasing two kids. As well, as having two very ungrateful toddlers who will look me directly in the eye, as they chuck their food across the room, out of revolt. Or, possibly they are crying at the top of their lungs, because you gave them 3 pieces of broccoli, but they wanted 4. And adding another piece of broccoli to the plate now, is completely asinine. It must all go into the garbage, and we must start over with a new plate, with exactly 4 pieces of broccoli on it.

Jerks.

So, mornings are the best time for us all. Waking up a little refreshed. Somewhat hopeful of a fun day ahead. And coffee. MMMMMMMM. Coffee. cc584b8de37cea8c446b90be1bf9b339My two favorite things are going to bed (the kids are asleep) and just lounging there for hours, and in the morning having a hot cup of coffee (before the kids wake up). I’ve recently discovered a delicious, and no-cook breakfast that almost gets me equally as excited. Overnight oats. Have you tried the craze??! It’s seriously YUM. And easy. And anyone can do it. Here’s how:

 

At night, when you prep your coffee pot for the morning, make this breakfast in under 5 minutes. Put it in the fridge, and both will be there to greet you in the morning with a big fat – I love you – kinda feeling.

Peach Pie Overnight Oats (1 serving)
1/4 Cup old fashioned oats (uncooked)
1/4 Cup vanilla almond milk (unsweetened)
1/4 Cup vanilla greek yogurt
1/4 Cup diced peaches or nectarines
1 Tbsp flax seed meal
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Place all ingredients in a mason jar. Screw on the lid, shake it, and place it in the fridge. Serve cold. Eat right from the jar. DONE.  Seriously.  Easy.  I. Told. You. So.
