It's been a sentimental day for me today. To overcome such unpleasant mood, I've decided to do something different. Something cheerful. Sweets is always the way to go. I made my red currant muffins for the first time and followed by a super easy snack - fried chickpeas with sage. I've always perceived that sweets are a pain to make. Today, I wanted a change and also break this perception. Plus a dear friend once told me that muffins are fairly easy to make. So why not muffins then. The fried chickpeas were made mainly because I needed a glass of wine to put my mixed emotions in place. I don't have any chips or snacks other than some nuts at home. While I looked ferociously for something to munch on, I remembered to make this recipe I saw on Food52 last night. I even had the chickpeas soaked in cold water overnight. The outcome was superb. I guess this is what life is all about, just gotta take a baby step to reach out. I'll never know unless I try. And I do feel better now. It's amazing how food can be so powerfully therapeutic.
