Brrrr! It’s freezing out! Old man winter is definitely here now! We were spoiled over the past couple months including 70 degree temps on Christmas Eve now it’s 12 degrees without the wind chill and we’ve already had our first snow with more to come this weekend. Usually being only 5 miles from the beach keeps our area a little warmer and the snow away.
Well the one thing we can’t change is the weather so I am offering a tropical getaway with this recipe!!! Escape to the fire-place with your bowl of soaked oats loaded with tropical fruits and it should give you a mini escape to a tropical island! Enjoy!!!
