My Zumba class was cancelled last night and dinner was already in the crock pot so I decided to use this time to prepare some breakfast options for the week.
The eggs that I made last week were a huge hit. We didn’t have any English muffins last week so I picked some up this weekend and put another batch of eggs in the oven tonight. I will probably eat some for lunches as well.
Next up was Overnight Oats in a Jar. I tried this a few weeks ago and I really liked it. Nolan wanted some so I offered him a bite but he wanted his own (the joys of 3 year olds). So I made three for breakfast in the morning. I followed the recipe other than using honey as my sweetener. I also didn’t add nuts or anything.
I made an Aldi trip this weekend and because their milk is so cheap, I picked up the maximum number of 4 milks. It turns out, we already had 2 unopened milks in the fridge. We go through lots of milk but that’s a little much. So I decided to make Greek yogurt. I did this one other time and it turned out pretty good. It isn’t very sweet but if you use her mix-ins, it’s fabulous! My yogurt came out of the oven this morning!
One other breakfast idea that I tried lately are steel cut oats in the crock pot overnight. I did 2 cups of oats, 8 cups of water, some brown sugar and cooked it on low overnight. We used honey to sweeten each bowl but it wasn’t sweet enough for Janie. Nolan ate two bowls the first morning but we had lots of leftovers and he was not really into it the next day. I’ve seen lots of recipes with apples, cranberries and raisins so I may give them a shot.
