Updated: Mar 21, 2019
Keeping with my "no heat for the summer" rule I'm trying not to use my oven or stove to stay cool and keep from heating the entire house up because I wanted to "cook" something. No. But, that doesn't mean I can't use inventive ways to make my favorite breakfast! Overnight oats is perfect. Not only can you grab it and run to work it's fun to try take an old standby and shake it up. Literally. You're going to want to shake it up.
