Hey guys, Happy Tuesday! Or I should say Toasty Tuesday! 🙂
First of all, how was your weekend??
Well, mine was great. Saturday we were out, and on Sunday we were at home. Just ate and watched our favourite movies, and of course spent quality time with my little munchkin. So no work and all play was there for me on SUNDAY.
I will call it a super fun Sunday. Oh well! Everything rare which I don’t do everyday—is fun for me! 😀
Let’s talk about food.
It’s been so long since I posted any breakfast recipes, which I ate for lunch eventually 😉
Oh ummmm! I made some lentils toast with fresh veggies and spices. And it was super awesome! It is a breakfast recipe, but I ate that for lunch.
And just to let you know, it was not a bad idea at all! 8) It was filler, nutritious, healthy and delicious! What else I needed for lunch? Nothing, this is all I needed for lunch! 😛
If I talk about Adoria—she could not go to her Daycare yesterday. Why? Because of her mommy dear! Well, I forgot to set an alarm to my wake-up light. Thus, Adoria could not go to her daycare. 🙁
For me, mornings are the hardest times to rise. Every morning there is the same story. I don’t want to get up at all, and just want to sleep more more and more! 😯
Well! I don’t sleep everyday till late. Actually I do not have the luxury to sleep that late. Uffff!
However, everyday I wish that I could sleep as long as I want to sleep! But that’s not possible. And I also know that many of you have the same struggle every morning, and I truly feel for you guys!
Welp! This is LIFE, and we should enjoy it! 🙂
Yes, I do enjoy and get up every morning on time, except yesterday! 😉
The one thing which helps me a lot to get out of the bed is the ‘wake-up’ light. Yes, it does really help. It does wonders for me, or I should call it a miraculous thing. I so want to thank the person who have invented this light.
I think he/she must have felt the same way, what we feel everyday. And on a very fine day he/she would have said—enough is enough! I have to do something for this society. I WILL create a magical artificial sunlight! And will make a difference. 😆
Jokes apart, he’s invented really praiseworthy stuff.:) I so want to thank him.
HELLO wake-up light inventor! I am your admirer, and I thank you for this commendable invention! 🙂
My morning stories are the same every day! I remove my eye band, snooze my first alarm, and sleep again. 😉 At the second alarm, I let the alarm sound, and let my face feel the rays of morning sunlight, while my eyes are still close.
And at the 3rd alarm, I am almost awake. At my fourth alarm I get up like a spring! 🙄
I don’t know why I am so sleepy head, but this is how I am. I don’t want to sleep at night, and then don’t want to get up in the morning. 😐
Okay! Back to the main point; why adoria did not go to daycare yesterday? The reason is pretty simple. My dear alarm did not ring!:?
We got up late, and had muesli for breakfast. At the time of lunch, I wanted to make something filler, nutritious and healthy and quick. What could it be?
To find out, I checked my fridge and there I found my last day’s boiled lentils.
And moong dal toast was the first thing that came to my mind. So I decided to make these yummy toasts. And making this toast is as simple as it sounds.
Today I am telling you all about how I made this amazing toast which my little daughter simply loved. Adoria becomes really choosy when it comes to food. Sometimes she really likes lentils, but I had no clue if she would eat that or not.
For me, I can have moong dal toast for breakfast or even lunch everyday. But wasn’t quite sure about Adoria. However, I did not think anything and just made this quick tasty toasts, and surprisingly she just loved it.
Oh! What a relief for a mommy! All of you lovely mommies out there can relate to me here! 😛
It was super quick. It really was. If you have cooked lentils, then this one is as easy as cake. It was actually so incredibly easy—it only takes ten minutes and it was actually kind of fun.
If you are running out of time, you should totally give it a try.
I tossed my lentils in spices and fresh veggies. And simply toasted my bread on a flat pan. That was it.
You will be thinking, what a treat. I know, I know, I can understand what you all spicy veg food lovers are thinking right now. Am l am driving you insane? Don’t worry that makes two of us, because I am on the same boat.
I made these crispy toasts yesterday, and I want them again today. Silly me! How could I crave for same food everyday! 😉
It’s really good stuff, healthy and actually a very simple, quick and easy recipe to make. And it is also utterly delicious.Yeah!! What are you waiting for? Grab your ingredients and make it in 10 mins, and and and, ATTACK! 🙂
Well, this is what I would have done! And I MEAN that! 🙂
