Saturday!! I’ve been making so many cooked breakfasts that I forgot how awesome it is to have one that involves zero cooking or cleanup. Yesterday I didn’t get a chance to finish my coffee, so I saved it in the fridge to reheat today, and I made overnight oats, which are as low maintenance as […]

Matt is home for a few more days (until January 2) when the bread factory starts up again. It’s been so nice to not only have a big family Christmas together but also a few days just to chill at home. We had nothing in our fridge but an egg and a grapefruit from my […]
