Monday Blues

Can't get enough of weekend! Today is another Monday Blues ... dragging myself to the office and traffic is always jammed somehow on a Monday morning. Must confess that I happily joined the whole world in groaning and grumbling about Monday, hesitating to let go of the lovely relaxing Sunday. But then again, there's nothing I can do about it, right?

Good to realize there are a couple of things to look forward to this week: the DMBLGIT May and a few interesting projects at the office. For this post, I like to share the recipe of broccoli salad... another experiment with broccoli. Enjoy!

1. Broccoli Salad
