A wonderful way to recharge...
Today was the sort of morning where getting up and going out for a walk seemed a bit over-the-top and anyway, by the time daylight decided to appear ( later and later due to the nearness of Christmas & co. ) it was too late to head out. The lure of breakfast, Sunday breakfast, was too powerful to resist.
Despite what many assume we consume, eating the vegan way affords us many scrumptious feasts and our Sunday breakfasts slot right in. We have a new favourite; Toasted grilled cheese and honestly, we love it. A stunning combination of bread ( rye, wholewheat or like today, bread rolls ) vegan butter, finely sliced onions, mayonnaise, ketchup, salt and pepper and slices of vegan cheese all grilled to perfection. Yum yum and worth delaying my walk for a day.
Taking the time to be lazy on a Sunday is a learned experience as so many are constantly on the go, feeling guilty even taking an hour to sit and relax. Weekends are aptly named as they should put a stop to our workweek.
We tend to put so much pressure on ourselves trying to have the perfect job, family, house, household and not forgetting the eternal quest for being in tune with the perfection-perception that advertisers like to sell us as the magic key to love, success and happiness. Isn't it obvious that we need to take time out and scale back on our irrational quest to comply with advertisers' idea of perfection?
As for our grilled cheese...unfortunately they disappeared before I had a chance to take a photograph. Next Sunday I'll try and remedy that little mishap!
