When I was younger, oatmeal had a bad rap (reputation) for me. It was good for you, sure, but it was bland. I thought it was food for old people, and I always associated it with the feeling of eating paper. There were flavored oats too, but even then I didn't willingly eat oatmeal until I absolutely had to (like the morning after an extremely greasy meal). Anyway, good thing people are so creative with food and overnight oats were born! I love overnight oats since it's so easy to make and it's really flavorful! Plus, you can customize it to however you want!
Since oatmeal is bland, it makes the best base to add whatever you want. It also easily absorbs the flavors of the things you've added (the same way it soaks the grease in your digestive tract. LOL). Let me share with you one of my favorite recipes which you can do with just 4 ingredients.
In honor of this occasion, I created a list inspired by today's "holiday". A little background: I'm the eldest in a brood of 5. We're 4 girls and the youngest is a boy, just like the movie "Four Sisters and a Wedding" (my parents waited for a boy. LOL). One of my sisters is currently working in Manila. And recently, one of my sisters went to Manila to watch the OneDirection concert so there were 3 of us left here. I don't know, even though there were still three of us left home, the house still felt unnervingly quiet. I guess I'm just used to having a lot of people home. So even though I get annoyed of belonging to a big family from time to time (especially when I want something expensive and I have to make way since there are other children to consider #eldestproblems), I don't think I would have it any other way.
Looking back at my old posts had me cringing a LOT. What was I thinking?! Like literally. I was bigger but still had the guts to go for neons, etc. I had a whole lot going on for me!! If not that, I dressed so shabbily but still posted it online, for the sake of posting. Oh well, all for posterity's sake. :)) It'll be a reminder that I can't be arrogant or judge-y of other people's fashion faux pas cause I also had my days.
