I have been trying to learn French about a year and half now…on and off. I know, that isn’t the way to actually progress, but I get bored easily. All jokes aside, I do, sincerely want to learn how to speak French fluently. My question is though, how does anyone successfully learn a new language?
I want to convince my husband by saying, “Hey honey, I think we need to take a lonnnng trip to Paris so I can finally learn French.” We all know that isn’t going to go over well. WHO even has the funds to do something like that? Maybe, some rich white, eat pray love, woman who during her down time, just lays in the pile of money that she has. I digress, I guess I just have to whip myself back into gear. I need to be putting 100% effort in everyday…when I can, whether that be slapping sticky notes on food or appliances to remember the word pomme for apple.
Speaking of food, this is making me hungry and I need to start preparing breakfast for tomorrow. I try to make meal prep as easy, and painless as possible. So, today I am sharing my recipe for overnight oats. It makes getting up in the morning a breeze and actually enjoyable. You can sit back and eat your oats while you try to learn some french…which hopefully, I’ll be doing.
Pear Overnight Oats
1 cup of Irish style oats
1 cup of almond milk
1/2 tsp. of honey
1/8 tsp. of turmeric
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
half of a pear finely diced
- Add 1 cup of oats and seasonings to a medium size bowl or cup.
- Then add the honey, almond milk and diced pear.
- With a spoon stir up the oat mixture until fully incorporated.
- Cover with plastic wrap and store in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next morning!
