Monday’s up to day. We’d better stretch and welcome the new day of the week. Well, that is, if we’re in the mood for it. But that shouldn’t be the case. Why don’t we look for something exciting to do? After all, there are plenty of things to do. For example, watching some great foodie shows. And you’re in luck, since I’ve got some good shows to recommend.
