Satay warzywny z kokosem – obiad w 15 minut

1 Share

satay warzywny 21

Książę Henryk się wreszcie ożenił z amerykańską aktorką, której na tę okazję wyszukano arystokratyczne korzenie wśród królów angielskich, a tym samym uczniono z niej daleką krewną swego męża. Poszukajcie dobrze w biografiach swoich przodków, a z pewnością odnajdziecie w sobie błękitną krew!

Bez względu na to czy żeś król, czy chłop, jeść człowieku musisz tak samo. Pogoda jednak słabo sprzyja godzinom spędzanym w kuchni. Kiedy jest zimno, ponuro, mokro – wtedy mogę całe popołudnie spędzić przy nagrzanym piekarniku. Piekę wtedy poważne sztuki mięsa, gotuję pożywne gulasze, przygotowuję ciasta. Kiedy jednak słońce świeci, to nie ma siły, która zamknęłaby mnie w kuchni. A obiad być musi…

To znaczy wcale nie musi, ale wypadałoby coś zjeść! W takich momentach sięgam po szybkie propozycje. Nie, nie obiad w 30 minut. Obiad w szalone, spontaniczne, raz ciach ciach 15 minut. Azjatycki makaron ma tę zaletę, że gotuje się go bardzo krótko (od 4 do 6 minut, w zależności od rodzaju). Do tego mieszanka warzyw (tak, kupuję od czasu do czasu pokrojone warzywa, żeby zaoszczędzić czas) oraz sos oparty na maśle orzechowym i mamy gotowy ulubiony obiad Króliczki.

Dzisiejsza wersja jest jarska, ale w archiwum bloga znajdziecie przepis na wersję z kurczakiem. Wiosna sprzyja ograniczeniu spożywanego mięsa, do czego wszystkich zachęcam. Jedzcie, co lubicie, ale z umiarem. Mój przepis jest też umiarkownie… pikantny (wiadomo, dzieci nie lubią zbyt ostrych dań), ale możecie sobie podkręcić smak sosu.

SATAY WARZYWNY Z KOKOSEM

  • 500 g mieszanki świeżych warzyw stir-fry (u mnie: kiełki fasoli, czerwona cebula, marchewka, brokuł, zielona cebulka i kapusta włoska)
  • 250 g azjatyckiego makaronu jajecznego (4 gniazdka)
  • 50 g wiórków kokosowych
  • 100 ml gorącej wody
  • 6 łyżek masła orzechowego z kawałkami orzechów
  • 4 łyżki sosu sojowego
  • 2 łyżki sosu sweet chilli
  • 2 łyżki soku z limonki
  • 4 łyżeczki brązowego cukru
  • 2 łyżki oleju
  • chilli i limonka do podania

Wiórki kokosowe wsypujemy do miski, zalewamy goracą wodą i odstawiamy do namoczenia.

Makaron gotujemy według instrukcji na opakowaniu. Po ugotowaniu odcedzamy i przepłukujemy zimną wodą.

Do namoczonych wiórków kokosowych dodajemy masło orzechowe, sos sojowy, sos sweet chilli, sok z limonki oraz cukier. Całość dokładnie mieszamy.

W woku rozgrzewamy olej, wsypujemy warzywa i smażymy przez 5 minut, mieszając od czasu do czasu. Dodajemy makaron, mieszamy i smażymy jeszcze 2-3 minuty, po czym wlewamy sos. Gotujemy chwilę, po czym nakładamy do misek, dekorujemy kilkoma plasterkami chilli i cząstką limonki. Podajemy od razu.

I Will Do Anything to End Homelessness Except Build More Homes

1 Comment and 4 Shares

Homelessness in America has reached crisis levels and I am determined to do everything in my power to fix the problem as long as it doesn’t involve changing zoning laws or my ability to drive alone to work or, well, changing anything, really. I’m more than happy to give a hungry man a sandwich once a year and then brag to my friends about it as long as he doesn’t sit down anywhere in my line of sight to eat it. Same goes for hungry women because I’m also a feminist.

This is so important because everyone should have a bed to sleep in at night and also nothing destroys property values faster than a desperate person on a sidewalk asking for change. I’m not saying I don’t care about human suffering, I just care much, much more about my immediate self-interest because I’m the kind of person who contributes to society by starting companies that leverage technology to build smart tea kettles that brew themselves while you sleep at night. I’m a fucking innovator.

I’m innovating for win-win-whatever solutions where I win, my community wins, and we do whatever to get rid of homelessness. Fixing the problem means lots of things: letters to the editor of my local newspaper, bombastic statements to the press that will make the fruit of my loins cringe for generations, and especially writing vaguely discriminatory, definitely ugly posts on social media about the crisis as it unfolds in my community. Also, I call the police a lot.

Ending homelessness doesn’t mean building more homes because this town is full of homes already, especially mine, which is a single-family mini-mansion on an acre lot that I inherited from my parents and/or managed to purchase with the kind of job and bank terms and economic equality that don’t exist anymore for anyone and only ever really existed for well-educated white Americans. Either that or it’s a magnificent luxury condo with expansive views that I don’t want marred by more luxury condos or — god forbid — affordable housing.

Every room in my Instagram-worthy abode is either filled with clutter or rented out nightly to hipsters from another gentrified, monotone city also suffering from a homelessness crisis — this is a national epidemic, after all. I’m a good person, a generous person, and what made me the person I am is having to work hard for everything my parents gave me, and everything I will, in turn, give to my children.

Listen, I know that the unholy concentration of wealth in America is a big, big, problem, but so is having to constantly say no to people asking for change as I whizz into Whole Foods in my Tesla or Prius (depending on how my startup investments pan out). What’s the point of having all this money if I have to feel bad about it? Also, has anyone actually verified that the homeless people claiming to be veterans aren’t just pulling some elaborate fraud? I’ve never actually met a veteran and I forget for like, decades at a time that the military even exists because the bubble of privilege where I reside is literally impregnable, but I’m suspicious nonetheless.

I know we need more housing, but I was here first and I’m not giving up even one blade of grass on my water-guzzling, pesticide-leaching lawn or a single burner on my twelve-burner Viking range that I never actually use to house another human soul. Tough luck, homeless people. You and your allies can call me names but I won’t hear you over the lushness of my climate-inappropriate rose bushes and the stucco walls I’m paying some desperate immigrant under the table to build for me on the cheap before I low-key call ICE and have them deported.

Look, if you give people homes the next thing you know they’re going to start to get their lives together and then get jobs and start organizing and then they’ll expand Medicare to everyone and build a fucking light rail line instead of a goddamn border wall and no one will drive anymore and cars will die out and the air will get clean and can you imagine the problems we’ll have then?

No. Stop it with the new housing; I’d rather have a homeless crisis.

The first day of a new job is always an adjustment. There's a fine line between explaining that you're unused to a procedure and constantly saying "At my old company...". After all, nobody wants to be that guy, right? So you proceed with caution, trying to learn before giving advice.

But some things warrant the extra mile. When Samantha started her tenure at a mid-sized firm, it all started out fine. She got a computer right away, which is a nice plus. She met the team, got settled into a desk, and was given a list of passwords and important URLs to get situated. The usual stuff.

After changing her Windows password, she decided to start by browsing the source code repository. This company used Subversion, so she went and downloaded the whole repo so she could see the structure. It took a while, so she got up and got some coffee; when she got back, it had finished, and she was able to see the total size: 300 GB. That's... weird. Really weird. Weirder still, when she glanced over the commit history, it only dated back a year or so.

What could be taking so much space? Were they storing some huge binaries tucked away someplace that the code depended on? She didn't want to make waves, but this just seemed so... inefficiently huge. Now curious, she opened the repo, browsing the folder structure.

Subversion bases everything on folder structure; there is only really one "branch" in Git's thinking, but you can check out any subfolder without taking the whole repository. Inside of each project directory was a layout that is common to SVN repos: a folder called "branches", a folder called "tags", and a folder called "trunk" (Subversion's primary branch). In the branches directory there were folders called "fix" and "feature", and in each of those there were copies of the source code stored under the names of the branches. Under normal work, she'd start her checkout from one of those branch folders, thus only pulling down the code for her branch, and merge into the "trunk" copy when she was all done.

But there was one folder she didn't anticipate: "backups". Backups? But... this is version control. We can revert to an earlier version any time we want. What are the backups for? I must be misunderstanding. She opened one and was promptly horrified to find a series of zip files, dated monthly, all at revision 1.

Now morbidly curious, Samantha opened one of these zips. The top level folder inside the zip was the name of the project; under that, she found branches, tags, trunk. No way. They can't have-- She clicked in, and there it was, plain as day: another backups folder. And inside? Every backup older than the one she'd clicked. Each backup included, presumably, every backup prior to that, meaning that in the backup for October, the backup from January was included nine times, the backup from February eight times, and so on and so forth. Within two years, a floppy disk worth of code would fill a terabyte drive.

Samantha asked her boss, "What will you do when the repo gets too big to be downloaded onto your hard drive?

His response was quick and entirely serious: "Well, we back it up, then we make a new one."
