Lemon and Thyme Overnight Oatmeal

I’ve always been a breakfast eater and oatmeal has been one of my favorites since I was a little girl. My mom used to make it for me with a little butter and sugar. Then I went through brown sugar and raisins phase when I was in college. Then I discovered overnight oatmeal and breakfast has never been the same again. I love how the oats retain their texture and don’t turn to mush. Plus, it’s so easy to experiment with different flavors. This is one of the combinations that I keep going back to again and again.
