Happy Sunday!

Is it odd to say that I’ve been looking forward to this weekend because I had absolutely nothing planned? I spent Friday night staying in with a bowl of homemade garlic shrimp vermicelli noodles and a little bit of Netflix. I had a CPR recertification class Saturday morning. And then maybe a walk through Golden Gate Park today, but nothing too eventful. Just a low key weekend.

It’s been so busy the last few weeks, that a low key weekend filled with almost absolutely nothing is exactly what I needed.

In the mean time, let’s talk about these blueberry swirled overnight oats.

Blueberries are readily available during the summer months. They’re huge and so so sweet. Perfect for making blueberry jams. And then swirling them all into my oatmeals and my overnight oats and chia puddings. The blueberry jam never gets old for me. And I still obsess over them.

In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and water until the cornstarch has dissolved. In a small pot, add blueberries, granulated sugar, and cornstarch mixture and cook over medium heat for about 5-8 minutes until the blueberries have softened and the juices thicken. Set the blueberries aside to cool for a few minutes.
