My longest relationship in college was with the fruit cart man.
Now, don't get me wrong. I had a lot of meaningful and wonderful partners during my four years at school. However, the man operating the fruit cart closest to school and I knew each other on a first name basis. He would stop me on the street and ask me how my day was. I would get off of the subway (after making the TREK to Trader Joe's) and ponder me about the goodies I had purchased. The best part of all was he was willing to make deals on fruit with me. My fondest memory was coming off the subway and him almost immediately handing me a case of 12 nectarines. "Not selling today," he said. " You buy for $2.00?"
Well, naturally, I couldn't say no. Now what?
This recipe was one of the many I have stashed away to use that crate of nectarines. Overnight oats are one of my favorite breakfasts during the hot summer months. It's almost like eating rice pudding for breakfast (and I love a good rice pudding) and I just throw the jar in my bag to take to work! I always love trying out new combinations, but the basic formula stays the same. This particular combo combines the sweetness of the fruit with freshly grated ginger. I love the taste of ginger with peaches. Plus, my tummy is normally not very hungry in the morning, so the ginger helps invigorate things down there ;). Also, feel free to change up the pumpkin seeds for other nuts or, in my case, a big pool of nut butter!
Sometimes, waiting is the hardest part.
