It is Monday and another exciting week is starting. I never liked Monday before. I was always feeling so nostalgic about my week end and having to tell your colleague about the awesome thing you did during the week end was not helping – yes, kiwis like to know what you did in the week end, it is surprising how Kiwis care about people!
But since I am staying home I love Monday. My girl is with me on Monday and it is like our private day after the family week end. We hanging out in bed in the morning watching cartoons – now I know why cartoon are diffused at 6.30 am – and then we are having a lazy breakfast in our pyjamas. The good thing is she is then having a long nap of 3 hours and I can use this time to prepare myself and cook a nice meal for my lunch. I have been a vegetarian for a while and I am still enjoying vegetarian meals when I am on my own. I do not know why but men always want meat – specially red meat – in any meal. I am so glad to have lunch alone each day to prepare my favourite vegetarian lunch !
So I prepared me a perfect autumn lunch to warm me up. I used green lentils and leek that I cooked with light cream, fresh organic orange juice, gloves, bay leaves and leek. Awesomely tasty! Most people hate lentils but it is just depends on how you cook them. I agree that it is not the sexiest and prettiest meal on earth but bring a bit of colour to the plate with some fresh orange and parsley and hop hop hop! nice it is.
