This summer just flew by. We didn’t go anywhere or do anything extraordinary. As a matter of fact, it was quite the contrary. It’s been a very relaxing, yet busy, past few months. Since we homeschool and are typically consumed with school stuff in the fall and spring, I took some time this summer to reorganize the house, do some deep cleaning, and finally set up a studio/office where I can keep all of my photography gear, dishes, backdrops, etc.
Other than that, I’ve spent a lot of quality time with my family. I always have fun spending time with them, whether it’s exploring a new city, binge-watching Netflix, or playing a board game. I guess time truly does fly when you’re having fun!
Since I work from home all week, my hubby works from home part of the week, and the kids are homeschooled, we spend a lot of time at home, no matter what time of year it is. That, paired with the fact that I’m a food blogger, means we eat mostly at home too.
I like to make a hearty breakfast each morning to tie us over until lunch. It’s usually oatmeal, a quick skillet scramble, or pancakes, but that’s only when I have the patience to stand at the stove flipping them. My favorite types of meals are those I can prepare and leave for awhile to cook or bake…you know, the “set it and forget it meals”.
These oats are perfect, because they’re not only easy to throw together, you can also change the flavor by using different fruit and spices. You can use sliced peaches, almonds, and a few dashes of nutmeg or use a blend of chopped apples, pecans, and increase the cinnamon—there are many different possibilities!
Whichever way you decide, I hope you enjoy it! These oats are awesome by themselves, but I love them with an extra splash of almond milk, a little drizzle of maple syrup, and a dollop of coconut whipped cream—such a yummy combo!
