I hope this week goes by fast, pretty soon I can start my count down to Costa Rica
I owe you a recipe for the best side dish ever! You need to make this at your next party. I know I say “you need to make this a lot” and I mean it when I say it. But honestly YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS! Your family and friends will thank you a million times over and when you make this you should serve it with your main course, not dessert. It is totally acceptable to make this and call it a meal… I mean it has fruit and oats in it. It is also acceptable to have several servings of this, I am telling you one serving just wont be enough.
