I have been chatting with a friend and she mentioned she was making overnight oats. We had oats in the fridge and I wanted to make one, too. Overnight oats are oats soaked in liquid and kept in the fridge overnight. Yes, you eat the oats in the morning. No cooking necessary. The recipe I found calls for rolled oats but what I had was instant oats so I used the instant oats. What I did was soak the oats in low-fat milk and yogurt. I just eyeballed the proportion of the oats with the milk-yogurt mixture. I added a pinch of cinnamon just because I have cinnamon in the fridge.
This is what it looked like after being soaked overnight.
You can scoop this to your bowl and add fruits. In my case, I added banana, mango and raisins.
Try this! You can experiment with other toppings for the oats.
My food experiment did not end there. I bought a pack of tortilla wrap in Malaysia. We were in the grocery and I wanted to use up my ringgits. I did not want to be bothered into exchanging them to peso. My friend bought packs of tortilla wrap so I bought one, too.
The wrap is going to expire next week so it was crunch time for me to make something with it. I heated the wrap on the pan following the instructions on the package. I gathered my ingredients. I choose fruits and vegetable that I like to eat. I got lettuce, carrots, green tomatoes, apple, mango, avocado. I cut them in julienne slices, arranged them on the wrap, topped with cheese and drizzled with store-bought caesar dressing and cheez whiz. Then, I wrapped it.
My uncle and one aunt loved it. The other other aunt looked like she was forced to eat it. She is not really adventurous with food so we already anticipated that reaction from her.
There are leftover ingredients so I made salad the next day. I still have four wraps left which I am using for another food experiment this weekend.
If you can’t find tortilla in your grocery shelves, you can make the wraps in your own kitchen. I found the recipe here. I will test this recipe soon.
