My Attempt at Ovenight Oats

I love reading blogs. Mostly style, do it yourself, health-nut and workout blogs. I can get lost in them reading post after post after post. A common theme I see amongst the health-nut and workout blogs is the love and passion for oats. I have never sceen so many people rave about oats. Lately they are all talking about overnight oats. Or cold oats.

I do like me some oatmeal. I have been known to eat my oats at work for lunch in a large 2 cup measuring glass. Some think it's odd. I think it's yummy in my tummy.

It's about time I attempt overnight oats:
