This was supposed to be a bitter Monday ; a Monday that came without a weekend break.
We spent weekends in front of our respective desktops , trying to solve bigger problems [that harm no mankind] with smaller impact ; even though in the world of technology and software , there are days when we feel we are carrying the world on our shoulder.
Technology was supposed to make life easier . I doubt if it did.
Today , I lost my keys for approximately 10 minutes ; during that lengthy phase of 10 minutes , I wanted to “Google” my keys , for more than 10 times . Google is my God – at least it feels so when I misplace my keys , wallet , favorite pen and notebooks.
If we forget ANYthing , we google ; if we want to talk louder, we tweet ; if we want to read , we go to blogs ; for eavesdropping we log in to FB . Sometimes it feels so weird to be in a generation that grew up in the pre-historic era of generalization of technology and now will grow old with slimmer devices and thicker pot bellies!
I read about Brussels sprouts ,the first thing in the morning on my favorite blogger’s page ; then I found Daily post discussing food ; and then I remembered my recent unhealthy diet , late nights , no gym while seeing someone’s picture of pot belly on Facebook. The universe was conspiring something ; I knew that.
I made this warm Brussels sprouts salad for a quick dinner tonight. I love Brussels sprouts more than I love any real sprouts ; I make a lentil soup with it , I stir fry it , and I make warm salad to feel royal. Certain vegetables can make you feel special ; broccoli , Brussels sprouts and asparagus are in that category in my life !
You can go ahead ,follow this recipe wholeheartedly ; I did ; but I customized it a little , by adding unsalted roasted sunflower seeds and fresh pomegranates.
Life is good finally [ and yummy too] !
