Sweet Potato Flatbread Sandwich with Salad

Jan. 28, 2018

Welcome Back!

Belated Happy New Year to you!  It's been a while since I came on this platform!  It has been hectic dealing with many competing issues relating to different projects I have undertaken.  My cooking passion had to be rested for a bit.  I hope you had a good Christmas and the new year is so far what you have been looking for? 

I wanted to say hello today and to briefly discuss with you a thought that entered my mind this morning as I entered the kitchen thinking of what to cook for breakfast.  A small voice inside me said "Go create" so that is what I did.  I understood that to mean, Monica, its Sunday morning, put together whatever you have, in as beautiful a way as you can, and let it be enough. 

The truth is that the voice was right.  Sundays, and especially Sunday mornings are not meant for serious food calculations and food programming.  Sunday is the one day in the week where you should relax and make something which is simple, fun and creative and with little or no cooking involved if possible.  Put together whatever you have and let it be enough!  Use the microvave, wash the remaining salad in the fridge and cut up the rest of the bread for toast. Then put together a simple but fetching dish which the whole family can talk about and enjoy! 

Happy Sunday Cooking!

What is Blue Tea and why should you be drinking it?

Organic dried Butterfly Pea flower tea (Blue Tea) is a natural, blue flower tisane (herbal tea) and a health tea. It is a unique tea because of its colour-changing properties.   It is alkaline by nature so it turns purple to pink when lime or lemon (acid) is added to it.  It is a fancy tea that you can impress your guests with and enjoy because of its numerous health benefits.  Blue Tea also serves as a natural food die and can be used in cooking, making cocktails, mocktails and in baking.
