Tell Me Why I Don't Like Mondays

Monday is officially the gloomiest day of the week.

Bob Geldof thinks so, too.

I think my caffeine intake on Monday mornings  go up by 200%.
My umpteenth cuppa
My previous workmates, wouldn't go near me on Monday mornings if I haven't had coffee yet.
For me, caffeine helps reboot the universe on Monday mornings.

Now that I don't have to be in an office on Monday mornings, when I find myself at home, I try to make breakfast that would set the week right.

Today, it's brown rice with skinless longganisa and paksiw na bangus.

Okay, I lied. The brown rice was mixed with a little white rice.

Here's the paksiw na bangus recipe in case you want to make your own.

1 pc. Boneless bangus belly
1/2 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
1 whole onion, sliced
ginger (as big as 2 thumbs), sliced
1/2 cup Sukang Paombong (vinegar)
1/2 cup water
patis (fish sauce) or salt to taste
black pepper to taste
green siling haba, optional

Place the bangus belly in a round pan (yes, that frying pan you use for eggs will do).
place the spices on top. Pour in the vinegar and water .

Set the range on low heat. Let the liquid boil and then add the patis to taste and top with the siling haba (it's the same one you use for sinigang). let it simmer for about a minute and it's ready to serve.
