The day I learned that you can easily make sweet potatoes in the microwave was a good day!
I simply wrap a sweet potato in saran wrap and microwave it for four to five minutes. A perfect sweet potato every time!
I can’t believe I used to wait foreeever for them to bake in the oven.
Today’s microwaved sweet potato was enjoyed with a BBQ pulled chicken sandwich served on a toasted English muffin with a side of apple slices. I was really hoping for some peanut butter to dip the apples in on the side, but we’re all out. The horror!
Leftovers always make lunch easy breezy.
It was the perfect lunch to break up a busy day of writing. The words are flowin’ easily today for my freelance projects, which feels great!
Overnight Oats Ideas
I really enjoyed reading your comments about your favorite way to make overnight oats on this morning’s post!
I figured I’d highlight a few of the ideas that stuck out to me in case some of you out there are looking for new ways to amp up your morning oatmeal:
- Use chocolate milk or chocolate almond milk (Idea from Lena and Cat)
- Add a flavored extract, such as vanilla extract (Idea from Jamie)
- Add a scoop of protein powder for more staying power (Suggested by many)
- Stir in canned pumpkin (Suggested by many)
- Smear peanut butter at the bottom of the bowl before adding all of the ingredients (Idea from Amy)
- Make them with steel cut oats by soaking them the oats overnight in just water and microwaving them in the morning for 2 minutes before adding Greek yogurt and fruit (Idea from Ruth)
- Make faux-vernight oats in the morning by combining the usual ingredients (reducing the amount of milk a bit) and letting them soak for 15 minutes before eating (Idea from Kushboo)
I can’t wait to play around in the kitchen! Thanks for your feedback and ideas, as always.
