Oh man, it’s Monday 

  
My weekdays have gotten to be very overwhelming. I leave the house early, sometimes before the sun comes up (which should be considered a crime) and return home at a somewhat decent time, but the events of the day leave me so drained and exhausted. The last thing I want to do when I get home is cook – but I guess I have to. 

Monday is my connect-the-dots day. It’s when I try to remember what I did on Friday and combine that with what happened in my absence over the weekend. It always amazes me, but a lot can happen in 2 ½ days. Seriously, I was out last Friday and just learned today that my office is moving, there were a couple of new hires, and all of last Thursday’s decisions were negated. Wow! How do things move that quickly?

I think that is what keeps me frazzled 75% of the day. Change is constant. What an oxymoron! But really, change never stops and it can be overwhelming and hard to keep up. I like being busy as much as the next person, but sometimes I need to stop and catch my breath.

Do Mondays leave you singing the blues too? 

My easy, go-to Monday meal is so simple and tasty that you will find yourself making it again and again.  

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees 
  2. Coat a large baking dish with olive oil 
  3. Add 6-8 chicken legs and season (I use garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper)
  4. Bake for 30 minutes
  5. While chicken is cooking, quarter 4-6 (pre-cooked) beets mix together with ½ bag of baby carrots and a ½ bag of baby potatoes
  6. Remove pan from oven and turn chicken
  7. Add vegetables and season
  8. Cover dish with foil and bake for 30 more minutes
  9. Enjoy!

So simple, so good, and so perfect for a Monday.
