Night Time Prep

Every night after dinner, I have to start thinking about breakfast and lunch for the next day.  Sometimes breakfast might be as simple as a cup of yogurt with some granola, or the spinach quiche I posted about last time, but no matter what I prepare, it has to be quick the next morning.  It's even better if I can eat it on the way to work!  I've been hearing a lot about mason jar meals and thought I would try it.  I didn't mind the jar being in the refrigerator, but I hated carrying it around with me.  Tomorrow morning I'm going to put my overnight breakfast concoction in a Tupperware type bowl.  I think that might work better for me.  If I drop it, I don't have to worry about a mess that might cut someone.  The first time I made it, it was a little bland.  This time I jazzed it up a little bit!  I hope you like it!

Overnight Oatmeal

½ cup of quick cook oatmeal
½ cup frozen or fresh blueberries, blackberries, and/or raspberries
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp. chia seeds
1 Tb. sugar free syrup
½ tsp. cinnamon

Combine all the ingredients in a storage bowl or a jar.  Stir and refrigerate overnight.  Microwave for 1 – 1 ½ minutes or eat cold.  Add more fruit if desired.

Crustless Spinach Quiche and Other Stuff

I haven't forgotten about all of you.  Really.  Life has been super busy!!  Many of you know that I have a second job and I LOVE IT!  I am a representative for doTERRA Essential Oils and I have been teaching classes and educating people on the many uses for essential oils.  I have a class this Saturday at my home if you would like to attend.  If you would like to host a class for your friends, I would be happy to teach it and you get free oils for hosting!  It's a great deal!

My youngest grandson turned 3 years old this month also.  That kid is a hoot!  He has so much energy, is so carefree, and the life of the party!  He is fun to be around because he keeps you entertained.  He also likes to play dress up as much, if not more, than his sister.  You never know if he's going to be a Ninja Turtle, a fireman, a super hero, or what!  However, don't call him Superman.  In his world, the name is Super Guy.

But, like I said earlier ... I haven't forgotten about you.  Today I have a recipe for a crustless spinach quiche.  If you are gluten intolerant, you can eat this.  There is NO flour involved.  It's so good, you won't even miss the crust!  OH!  I found my camera, so you get a picture of it today.  I'm so excited to be able to give you a picture again!
