Strawberry Banana (&& Cherry) Overnight Oats

overnight oatsMORE OATS!

Last night when the husband and I were getting our things ready for today, something beautiful happened…he requested oats! My last step of the night before relaxing with a good book and the MLB All-Star game was to make another batch (and new flavor) of overnight oats [see yesterday’s post right below this one]. As I announced what I was going to the kitchen to do, my husband said, “Can you please make me some too? They looked good and your blog made them sound yummy.” Uh, OF COURSE I WILL MAKE YOU OATS! I am not sure I will ever tell anyone no to oats…so now you guys know.

Cue the Maryland/Baltimore accent…
You want oats? I got oats. Ohats ohats ohats!
