This onion tomato cheese sandwich is your regular bread toast uplifted with little amount of cheese, mayonnaise and ketchup to make your Monday mornings more peaceful.
As a kid, i do not remember the Monday blues, mostly because i loved them. Monday’s were a beginning of a fresh new week, neatly ironed uniform out of the closet, freshly polished white shoes, oiled hair, the bag ready, the cycle cleaned and washed. With all these complete i still had time to do zillion more things.
Fast forward to now, the Monday’s are fearful,the craziness unwraps on Sunday, there is a long list of things to be complete, the kiddo’s homework still on table, the piled laundry, the grocery shopping, dusting, cooking and the list goes on. I always wonder how my mom managed all these with three kids!!! I should be called a super mom, if i manage everything and get up on Monday mornings with a big smile, do the tasks as planned and not chase that school bus.. that’s my dream for a perfect Monday and some dreams just stay there and don’t form a reality.
There are days where i plan my breakfast and have my Idli or Dosa batter ready the nutritious one power packed with all nutrients to kick start the monday when paired with right condiments and there are days where i simply am lazy enough and stack the lentils back into the refrigerator and cook my favourite Upma and there are some Monday’s where i simply pull out a bread toast it and have it plain like a poor soul.
At some point i learnt, well one of the good thing to kick start the blues is a good food, which always need not be a laborious task but could be as simple as this onion tomato cheese sandwich.
