Overnight Baked Oatmeal

Many of you know our 19 year-old daughter Kenna is here from Charlotte, North Carolina for a month. Now, I’d say she is “home” From NC, but when I hear her talk she now refers to that  southern town as “home” {{sniff, sniff}} :-(

At any rate, I am trying to recreate some fun and  fond memories from when she was a kid through day trips (she already took her brothers to the cider mill we frequented when she was little) and making her favorite foods.

So, here is one of her favorite “Sunday Morning” breakfast foods I made when she lived at home. It worked so well when there was lots of commotion as we were all busy trying to head out the door to church since you assemble most of it the night before. Give it a try!

Oh, and are you trying any new recipes soon? Do share!

Happy Weekend!
