In an effort to adopt some sort of routine, I may have to resort to planning meals around theme days to make life a little easier. We have always enjoyed left overs on Sundays so that there is truly a day of rest, but the remainder of the week I try to create something fresh and appealing at mealtime. I have to admit, Monday lunches do not stir my creativity, as I’d rather grab-n-go to get a jump on the week. But alas, grab-n-go is not a healthy choice.
To make it easy, we’ll just follow Sunday left overs with Kitchen Sink Salad Mondays—throwing whatever we have on top of lettuce and enjoy!
