When Tuesday is Friday

Ah! Today is my last day of work for a week and a half :) !!! Can’t say I’m sad about that.

Now that we’ve been packing and getting stuff ready, I’m just itching to go.

Still can’t believe the trip is already here – it has totally snuck up on me this year and the summer has flown by.

To help use up food in the fridge, I made a huge batch of overnight oats for breakfast this morning.

I’m not worried about leaving some eggs or tortillas in the fridge, but I definitely want to use up the opened almond milk, yogurt, and fruit so I won’t have to throw it away.

Today’s mix could be my best yet!

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup plain Almond Breeze, 1/3 cup unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze
  • pinch of salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

I mixed the base up last night and let it sit in the fridge overnight to thicken up.

This morning, I mixed in the rest:

  • greek yogurt
  • nectarine
  • raspberries
  • blueberries
  • sprinkle of walnuts

Not sure what I would do without overnight oats some mornings  – they’re a lifesaver on busy days!

PS: Check out Sneaky McSneakerson this morning:

She’s not supposed to be on the couch unless we tell her to get up. I walked into the den to check on her after I put my breakfast together and found her curled up in the corner, on the pillows.

Then she gave me the stink eye :)

It’s a good thing she’s cute ;)

  1. Oh I am so envious that this is the last day before your trip! Those are the best – the anticipation is almost as good as the trip itself!

  2. I hope you have a great last day before you leave! Looks like it started off pretty great………. :)

  3. that bowl of overnight oats w/ all the fresh fruit is gorgeous! hope you have an awesome trip girl, yay for vacation!

  4. Gotta love those short weeks! I’m a weee bit jealous- even if I just had one last week!

  5. Aww Maggie. She’s pushing the limits because she knows she isn’t going with you.

    Our dogs aren’t supposed to be in bed when we aren’t but if the door is open the go in and lay down. They are little stinkers and then won’t get out. I guess our bed is more comfy than the couch :-)

  6. haha my dogs used to do the same thing! Everytime we walked into the room, they’d shuffle off the couch…unless it was me, then they’d stay put since they knew I never cared. :P

  7. Yay for being off work and your exciting trip! Those oats look amazing and Maggie is just too dang cute!

  8. Your breakfast is so gorgeous!! Haha, your dog reminds me so much of my dog Ripsey! :) Sooo cute!! :)

  9. Maggie and the Stinkeye! Hilarious; she probably DOES know that something is up…I mean, those SUITCASE things are out again…

    Have a great trip!

  10. Your dos is so pretty! And your overnight oats look TASTY… I have choco almond milk but haven’t tried them in overnight oats (yet)!

  11. If you end up with a little more almond milk than you can use before leaving, pour it into a freezer baggie and freeze it. It works great for smoothies.

    How are you liking the Healthmaster? It’s my favorite countertop appliance.
