Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

Why has Buffalo Cauliflower come to life? There are questions that we shouldn’t ask, simply accept the answers provided to us. Others are worth exploring.

There are moments in our life when we did something but can’t really explain why we did it. It’s like a foreign force taking over our actions, making us do all sort of unreasonable things.

Like refreshing our Facebook feed to see if anything new has happened there. Being grateful for the sight of that little notification dot because that makes our actions somewhat justifiable. After all, when we get a notification, our attention is needed there immediately to solve any problems may have occurred in the last 15 or so minutes.

We may not even realize that we are hooked onto something like this until someone points it out for us and even then, we’ll just brush away the criticism as overreaction.  After all, we are social beings and being connected to our close social circle of couple of hundreds or maybe thousands of people is completely normal, right?

Not to mention that we can do whatever we like in our free time and everyone deserves a bit of a break every now and then to wind down or find inspiration for the next big task.

Who would have thought that social media companies will use the same nasty little mind tricks on us to gain our attention as the gambling industry uses on the slot machines to get our money?

While casinos take our money, social media companies take something much more valuable from us. They take our time that we can never win back. In turn, we get personalized ads and fake news, designed with the sole purpose to invest more of our time in them.

This whole thing is actually our fault as much as slavery was of enslaved people. As slaves didn’t raise up against their much more powerful masters choosing almost certain death, we didn’t say no to free access of services that exploit the loopholes of our free will, taking away our life in exchange.

How exciting this new life, we have been given. The Wild West of the Internet era where data is the new gold and tens of thousands flock to try their luck in the digital fields. Many have been failing, never making even close to the golden fields but wrecking everything on the way all the same.

It doesn’t matter what our interest is. Pretty boys and girls masked by camera filters touting the latest and best of everything they have been paid for, only pretending what they want us to believe.

And believe we do. Once someone gains our trust, we lower our guards and accept everything from them without questioning the underlying reasons or authenticity of the information. This is the same trick our parents used to feed us broccoli and Brussel sprouts.

Of course, once we figured that, these things weren’t really in the best interest of our taste buds, we rejected them and started to question the very foundations of our relationship. Failing to understand the underlying reasons of both parties leads to the complete erodation of trust, probably latest when we hit puberty.

Did it help that instead of a thoughtful explanation of why we should do something, mom melted cheese over everything green and coated the rest of them in sugar?

Only the official obesity figures could answer that question. But there are issues that even scientist can’t answer. Matters that are above our understanding, guided by powers that leads us through life on unknown paths to enlightenment.

Questions like why we have buffalo cauliflower remain unasked and we simply accept that we have answer for that. Or at least those who are into cauliflower will accept that. The remaining part of the population will undoubtedly shake their head in disbelief at every bite until their doubts are dissolved like butter into hot spice.Buffalo-Cauliflower-Recipe-SunCakeMom
