Advertorial in association with Quaker Oats
Following on from my Quaker Oats recipe for PB & J overnight oats, I’ve got a great giveaway for you today, so that you can create an aspirational breakfast to make your family proud! Read on to find out more…
There are plenty of moments that, as a parent, have not been my proudest.
For example, Belle seems completely unable to forget the one time I made her a tea that consisted simply of four burnt fish fingers. I can’t remember the context – I’m sure there was some – but of course, that will be the one thing she remembers forever and ever. Will she care that I have built myself an entire career around school hours, just so I can be there for her in the morning and after school?
She will remember the fish fingers.
Very occasionally though, I have one of those amazing parenting moments, where I actually do something that the mums on Pinterest do. Like when I made those pink doughnut helium balloons, or the time I made these Pingu cupcakes for Bee’s birthday. (And by ‘made’ I mean ‘paid someone else to make’.)
That was a very proud day for me.
I had another of those aspirational parenting moments this week when I tried my hand at making some overnight oats using one of the new Quaker Oats MissPrint mason jars. I actually made PB & J overnight oats with a home made raspberry and chia seed jam, so bonus points to me. Skip back a few days and you’ll find the recipe post.
I’ve always thought of overnight oats as one of those things that fancy parents do, like insisting their children clean their teeth twice a day and eat vegetables and stuff like that, so I was very proud of myself.
Think less overnight oats, more overnight gloats.
Belle was less impressed with me, even though I made a little video, thinking I could win her round by becoming a YouTube sensation.
‘You know this is super cringe don’t you?’ she said, immediately crushing my overnight gloats dreams.
‘What do you mean??’ I said, mason jar in hand, ‘I’m just like Zoella!’
Well. What does she know? You just wait Belle, soon people will be sending me handbags to vlog about and they will sell out immediately and I will be famous.
Plus who needs the approval of teenagers when you have your very own jar of overnight oats??
