What Kitchn Editors Drink with Our Monday Morning Reads
Monday mornings can be brutal — but do they have to be? My most recent hypothesis is that they don’t. I’m trying to think about Mondays as more like Fridays (i.e., transition days) … only you’re coming out of your weekend rather than going into it.
The trick to making Mondays not suck is simple, really: Give yourself permission to enjoy Mondays. Because, let’s be honest — you’re not going to get everything done on Monday. No really, you’re not, and that’s okay; that’s what the rest of the week is for.
So, in the spirit of making Mondays just a little bit better, we’re sharing our favorite morning reads. And while, yes, we do peruse the usual food-site suspects as part of our work day, we’re not even going to bother to mention those here. These are our not-so-guilty Monday morning pleasures — and what we drink with them.
