Overnight Oats

I have been on an oatmeal kick for the last couple of weeks. I have been eating regular oats with fruit (usually blueberries), cinnamon, and brown sugar. It is a healthy, easy, and filling breakfast – I love it!

When I was visiting my sister last week, she was making overnight oats. I had seen many overnight oat recipes online but always seemed to skip them. When I saw my sister make her overnight oats and saw that they looked really tasty, I asked myself why I was not doing this!? I loved the idea of making my breakfast the night before and having enough breakfast for the next few days.

Therefore, this recipe is her recipe. However, she did not add the banana, she added brown sugar instead. The banana idea came from a friend of mine – very tasty!

Ingredients:
-1cup of oats
-1cup of almond milk
-1 ripe banana
-2tsp of cinnamon
-4-5 small apples, sliced thinly

Directions:
– Add oats, almond milk, banana, cinnamon in a bowl and mix well
– Place mixture in a pie plate
– Place sliced apples over oat mixture
– Cover with plastic wrap and place into fridge overnight
– Take out of the fridge the next morning and dish yourself a portion
– Some will eat this cold, but I prefer heating it

Chicken Pad Thai

DELICIOUS! Is the first word that I will use to describe this recipe, and SIMPLE, is the second word that I will use to describe this recipe.

If you are in the mood for Thai some night and do not want to go out and spend 15-17 dollars at a restaurant, I suggest that you try making this glorious dish. It is tangy, light, and full of flavour. It also has a little zip, for those who enjoy a little spice in their life.

Last night, I went out for supper with a friend and I was torn between two dishes, Chicken Shawarma and Pad Thai. I went with the Shawarma…and had no regrets, but I was still craving Pad Thai. Therefore, I went online when I got home and came across this wonderful recipe. Check out the link below to find the full recipe.

Le creme de la crumb

I adapted this recipe, however. I did not use fish juice. I added Worcestershire Sauce instead. I also added another tsp of PB and more vegetables, such as carrots and green/red pepper. Also, I added 1 tsp of Sesame Oil.

Here is the finished product:

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
