Current Breakfast Obsession: Overnight Oats with Kefir

Bet you thought I forgot about this post series.  Bet you thought I’d been living off oatmeal on the weekdays and waffles on the weekend.  Bet you thought I’d revert back to my almond milk and banana overnight oat summer self once June rolled around.  You bet wrong.

My TimeHop reminded me of this post I wrote last May and these overnight oats with kefir that I ate a few times but then moved on and forgot about.  So sad when that happens.  But they’re back!  And I’m loving them every single morning, except for on the weekend, when I really am just eating waffles…

Just know I bought whole milk plain kefir instead of low-fat and it’s the creamiest!  If you’ve never tried kefir it is thick like yogurt but much less tangy.  I truly love it.  I ran out of coconut flakes and have been topping these with fruit and granola instead and it makes life feel very good.  Try it!

This Week

Valentine’s Day!

I got Joey an ice cream of the month subscription, he got me a craft beer of the month subscription, we both wrote “TABLES TONIGHT!” in our cards, I got a mid-day flower delivery and we had an epic dinner.

Just know this stuffed chicken was incredible and I ate a strawberry “pocket pie” that tasted like Captain Crunch Berries in the best possible way.

Joey and I booked a trip to Nashville!

We don’t actually know where we’re gonna stay or what we’re gonna do, but we do have plane tickets so that seems like a step in the right direction.

I dreamt I went to a twenty one pilots concert?

I guess I did just see them at the Grammys so maybe they were on the brain?  P.S. It greatly pains me that they use all lower-case letters in their band name.

I made a savory breakfast.

Who am I?  Though I usually go for savory when we go out, my weekday at-home breakfasts are always of the sweet oatmeal variety.  But I really wanted to use up this 5-Minute Magic Green Sauce I made last week and actually this was very very delicious.

I bought the newest Lumineers album.

Yeah, I know it came out a while ago, but I’ve been loving that “Angela” song on the radio so I figured I’d bite the bullet and buy the whole thing.  It’s pretty good, though the three songs that have made it to the radio are the most upbeat it gets.

I remembered we finished watching The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Over the weekend!  And I didn’t even say anything about it in my weekend post!  Two things that totally sickened me: the way Marcia Clark was treated and the fact that Mark Fuhrman didn’t have to change his name and move to Antarctica.  He’s literally on tape saying the most heinously racist things and instead of being shunned by the entire world, HE’S ON FOX NEWS??  This is majorly disappointing.

I ditched Thursday night yoga to join my family for dinner.

Back when I lived at home, my mom used to do a salad bar for dinner and turns out, she still does that!  Or she did last night at least 🙂  I shoulda got a picture of all the stuff she had set out, but how great does this loaded salad look??

My mom got me a Valentine’s gift!

Where my list makers at?!  She requested that I use this notebook to make a list of the lists I make, ha!

I’m feeling so so glad it’s Friday.  Are you with me?!
