So my life has been super busy lately.
Waking up at 6:45 in the morning and coming home at 10 to 11 at night.. I seriously am needing some rest. And some easy recipes!
But don't feel too bad for me. This is forcing me to be creative with my easy, quick to make breakfasts...and late night dinners.
And birthday hot chocolates apparently.
And while Starbucks has moved on from it's pumpkin spiced phase of the year (am I the only one sad about this?) I can still have a delicious pumpkin treat to perk me up in the mornings. No caffeine required.
This oatmeal is so easy to make, and one of my favorite microwave oatmeal. That is, after this one which I make pretty much every week.
But in terms of a quick pumpkin recipe, this one is a treat.
