It's Monday... yay. No really, I'm off today so yay me, although Mondays are one of my busier days. I understand that the rest of the world hates Mondays with a passion, I mean the weekend is over, you have to go back to work/school blah blah blah. Let's not let it get us down! We're cave-people, we laugh in the face of a challenge, we like to be pushed out of our comfort zone (AKA the bed), we live to conquer stuff so let's pull ourselves together and punch Monday in the throat. We can brag to all of our friends about how we "totally dominated that Monday."
I'm a little more enthusiastic than normal because I started my day off with a Filthy Fifty paired with bacon and washed it all down with a nice home-brewed Kombucha, what more could this little cave lady want? So on this particular Monday, find joy in the little things, like the fact that your boss had to come to work too. Embrace life and remember you get back what cha' put out.
This recipe is one of those "little things" because it's quick and easy. Even tastes good cold.
