Getting creative with leftovers

Right now, when I open my fridge I don’t find all that much. A single apple, left over black beans, a carton of coconut milk, and some catsup is just about all I can find in that pit of emptiness. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to the grocery store in a while. Even though I don’t have much, I still refuse to eat out!

I live in New York…it costs way to much money! Besides, whatever I come up with from the limited ingredients I have will probably be more enjoyable than just going out and ordering in.

Last night, when I was making my breakfast for the following morning, I realized that I had to use the remaining pumpkin that was sitting in the fridge. I decided to see what would happen if I made my overnight oats with some added pumpkin. I was not disappointed with my results…I mean common…everything is better with pumpkin!!
