Power nap on office desk !!!

I admit , just like all of you once in a while i do feel sleepy during afternoon and mostly on days when i take heavy meal than my usual home brought food in 2 small boxes.

And on those days when i feel sleepy i try to close my eyes for 5 mins and i feel guilty about it …i dont know why , but i do feel …

But today was no such day… i took a power nap of 15 mins and still not a single feeling of guilt came to me ….

I am still jet-lagged , was my perfect answer🙂

The daylight saving thing !!!

Yesterday it was the shortest day in my life …

it was just 23 hrs with the readjustment of the clock at the strike of 2.00 am … and then just like that with the snap of fingers you need to adjust the with new time ….u cant sleep at 12.30 as its actually 11.30 from yesterday and then wake up an hr ago  when its dark when yesterday the same time there was good light and then have lunch at 11.30 am oops the time reads 12.30 pm …

It was all weird ..

Until … 7.00 pm …

its supposed to be dark , super dark when i go out like all these months i am here … but not today …

there was daylight …. it was still day out … like the evening has not even started and i have a whole evening at my disposal ….

Talking with a old friend…

Fresh laughters on old jokes are always funnier than new jokes …. do u agree ?

Catching up with a old buddy is always so much fun…
Leg pulling is the truth.. and for straight talks.. what is that….

I hav made some unique and interesting friends.. and its ok if we do not catch up with each other so often.. but when we do there is no end…

Mushrooms !!!

There is the eternal debate …. Mushrooms are they Veg or Non-veg …

For years the vegetarians wont eat it as its non-vegetarian and then non-vegetarian wont really like it as its not anywhere close to being a animal or that kind of protein source …

Dear Mushrooms do not you worry, there are people like us , who like you for the way you are and just the way you are … we do not care what you are , we just know we can survive on you …

This is my dinner :

Butternut squash soup : topped with mushrooms and garlic

Baked mushroom caps filled with mozzarella cheese , crushed garlic , chilli flakes and light drizzle of smoky olive oil …..

Baked Artichoke !!!

Before i came to the US, i had a very little idea , what artichoke it … I had heard it from a friend who had heard it from someone else visiting from somewhere else …

I being me and Artichoke being a food ,  I had to know more , so I had educated myself with Google  …

So I had learnt to cook it , boil it , microwave it, bake it even before I could lay my hands on it …

Sorry ,it might sound crazy , but what if I see it one day and don’t know how to select a good one , or might think i don’t how to use it and then chicken out from buying it at all …

I am a curious person and I like that about myself …

So, when I came here I started with the artichoke salads , the picked artichokes , ready to use kind , and then today I decided to bake one for myself ….

2 artichokes , 1 onion garlic olive oil dip(ready to eat) …. and me binge watching ‘Orange is the New Black’ …
