Well, I suppose statistically it was inevitable. I have found so many recipes on Pinterest and the majority of them I absolutely LOVED! A few were so-so. But I had yet to find any that I just hated and would vow to never make again....until this week. So while at first I was disappointed with not having a complete winning record, I quickly realized that 100% success rate was unrealistic. So I prided myself that it took this long to find a "flop" and celebrated the number of successes I have to date.
Since I am not a morning person, I thought that a quick and easy breakfast meal that was something different than I have been eating would be a great change of pace. So when I came across the "overnight oatmeal" recipes with some many variations and positive comments, I thought it sounded like just what I was looking for. But oh was I sadly mistaken.
I got them ready at night before I went to bed. I tried 2 different variations - a berry and a vanilla/cinnamon. It's basically oatmeal, yogurt, and some kind of liquid. You refrigerate overnight and the oats are supposed to soak up the moisture in the liquid and soften without cooking and is a cold cereal. But to my horror, it was like eating flavored glue. It was horrible. I even added some no-cal sweetener....not any better.
So I have put that recipe in the "I will never make THAT again" section in my recipe book. I would love to hear if any of you have tried similar recipes and had any success. I hate having a fail on my record....my competitive streak coming out again :-)
