Overnights Oats making a Comeback

Good Morning!

Somehow I slept until 10:30 this morning..and it feels freaking awesome

Did anyone watch the Golden Globes last night? Cause I watched both the red carpet and the entire award show. And let me tell you my two obsessions

George Clooney I love you so much. When the Decendents won I tweeted in .5 seconds “GEORGE CLOONEY I LOVE YOU”..and when George won best actor I screamed. Yup I did.

And Sofia Vergara..I want to be you

She is drop dead gorgerous, and her acceptance speech last night when Modern Family won was the best speech of the night hands down.

ANYwho onto dinner last night..I made a quick and easy Spaghetti Squash with chicken and spinach

Its not the prettiest looking dish but it tasted delicious! Here’s how I made it.. I cooked the spaghetti squash at 375 for 45 minutes. Then I sauteed cut up chicken pieces oven medium heat with 1 tsp chopped garlic, 2 tsp olive oil, 1 tsp red pepper flake, salt, and pepper.  Once the chicken was browned, I added in about a cup of store bought marinara sauce and a cup of defrosted and drained chopped spinach. I reduced the heat to low and let it cook for a another 3 minutes and then stirred in 1/4 cup goat cheese (because I add goat cheese to everything).  Easy peasy spaghetti squash recipe!

And guess what I just ate for breakfast..

Pumpkin Butter Overnight Oats! I haven’t had the desire to eat oats in a lONG time due to the fact that I had been eating them every morning for ummm I’d say at least 3 months. But because of a recent post on this awesome blog, I was inspired to whip up a batch following her technique!

In the mix

  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin butter
  • 1/2 mashed banana

I mixed it all last night, put it in the fridge, and enjoyed this morning! The chia seeds thickened from soaking all night..so so good! I’m thinking I’ll probably have this same thing for breakfast tomorrow morning:)

I’m getting ready to complete Bodyrock week 3 on the 30 day challenge, so I’ll post later about my reflections on the challenge so far!

Question for ya!: Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? Who do you think was best dressed?

I think Sofia Vergara should win best dressed, but I did love Jessica Alba’s dress a lot!
