Almond-chutney chicken in lettuce roll-ups
Because the way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. Got this recipe from a friend of a friend who apparently got it from a Kasper and Swift cookbook). Enjoy!
The chicken chutney part:
3 lbs rotisserie chicken, skinned and cut into bite-sized cubes (you could also sub with a firm meat substitute. Nasoya Toss’ables would work well!)1 medium red onion, diced ¼”3 celery stalks, diced ¼”1 cup of whole salted almonds, coarsely choppedJuice from 3 large lemons (and the zest from one, so best to buy organic) Jalapeños or hot sauce to taste9 oz jar of mango chutney (Major Grey is best)½ c of mayonnaiseSalt and pepper to taste
The lettuce wrap part:
8 radishes, thinly sliced1 large cucumber, cut into batons or thin rounds1 large bunch of cilantro1 large bunch of basil 1 large head of Bibb lettuce or similar salad greens.
Leave aside the celery and the almonds for when the salad is ready to be served. Mix all the other ingredients for the chicken chutney, reserving the chicken and seasonings for last. Fold in the chicken and add salt, pepper, and lemon to taste. To serve, fold in celery and almonds to the chutney mixture. Use the platter of vegetables to customize your wraps or toss it all together for one big crazy salad.
A Manul cat. That is all.
But wait, there's more!
Last one, promise!
Love means to learn to look at yourselfThe way one looks at distant thingsFor you are only one thing among many.And whoever sees that way heals his heart,Without knowing it, from various ills—A bird and a tree say to him: Friend.
Then he wants to use himself and thingsSo that they stand in the glow of ripeness.It doesn’t matter whether he knows what he servesWho serves best doesn’t always understand.
Happy Valentine’s Day. Wishing you the best wherever you are, whoever you are. May every bird and tree call you friend.

The production and end-of-life disposal of our smartphones, computers and other modern tech have a dramatic impact on the environment, which can often be overlooked when compared to other environmental issues. Half of the carbon emissions from the digital sector (making up 4% of global emissions) come from the production of devices like these, and buying them refurbished, while not a perfect solution, can help to significantly limit their environmental impact. We’d like to tell you a little more about that.
The tale begins in 1904, in the firestation of Livermore, Ohio. It is a bright and hopeful beginning. An electrician is in the process of fitting what will become known as the “centennial bulb” - a light bulb that would continue to burn even a hundred years after. The bulb, invented by Adolphe Chaillet and manufactured by the Shelby Electric Company, still shines even today. That light pointed to a bright future, but that future would dim just 20 years later.
Unless you act fast your ownership rights over your devices may soon be limited. Big tech companies are currently lobbying to restrict your ability to repair or modify electronic equipment—including things like your tablets, smartphones, laptops and more.
