My Favourite Restorative Omelette in Quiche Form {Curried Tuna Quiche} and Why I Secretly Love Mondays


Hello and happy Monday!

I see this everywhere – but I’ll just say it again – how on earth is it March already?!

At this rate I’ll be 50 in a year’s time – good grief.

So – Monday – probably the most loathed day ever… I would hate to be it!

To be honest, I quite like Mondays {except for the very early start}, and here’s why:

  • It’s a fresh start to the week
  • The kids go back to school after a nice and busy weekend {I do love and enjoy my kids dearly, but come Monday, I’m happy to wave goodbye for a few hours ;) }
  • It’s laundry day and everything gets renewed and refreshed
  • I get to plan my week and make my beloved lists {blush}
  • Even though I’m usually super-busy at home on a Monday, the solitude is quite welcome

This all sounds quite tranquil, but let me let you in on a little secret, Mondays are mayhem and I usually never get through all I need to do…
{So much for those lists…}

Come late afternoon and I’m scrambling around, playing with the kids and trying to concoct something decent for supper!

That’s why I try and keep things simple on a Monday – it’s either some oven roasted chicken or a quiche of some sorts. {The fridge is also normally a bit depleted after the weekend and with my long to-do list, I never get to the shops on Mondays, so dinner is kept simple.}

Right, enough waffing about Mondays – here’s my favourite restorative omelette in a quiche form, perfect for a Monday supper:

[recipe title=”Curried Tuna Quiche” servings=”4-6″ time=”1hr” difficulty=”easy”]

You will need:

1/4 onion, chopped

1 tsp salt
Sour cream
