Hyphenated @ SXSW 08

Amy and I have been accepted to a new thing at SXSWi coming up in March in Austin, TX. It’s called a “Core Conversation” and we’ll be holding one on our concept deemed “Career Rev 342: Dabble Dabble, Toil and Kick Ass”. The basic premise revolves around a lot of what Amy and I have been through: broad, multi-faceted learning, generally out of the classroom, and lots of nose to the grindstone. It’s also a discussion about how mutliple facets improve team interactions (as opposed to specialists who don’t understand each other’s specialties).

We don’t have any details yet, but we’ll update you as we move towards March.

    So what's for dinner? Last night we had some rice noedlos kicking around so I tried my best knockoff on Pad Thai. As Mariah so eloquently put it, lets ad this to the rotation. That's good enough for me and better yet it took less than 15 minutes. First you really do need a wok. I've got a well seasoned carbon steel one I got from amazon.com. What you need: 1 Pack of rice noedlos2 skinless Chicken breasts sliced thinly and uniformly, or a bunch of shelled and deveined Shrimp, or Tofu, or thinly sliced Beast of any kind.3 or 4 cloves of Garlic crushed and finely chopped1 nub of Ginger thinly sliced1 bunch of Scallions white parts sliced thin and the green parts sliced and set aside for later.2 organic Eggs (room temp is best)2 tablespoons of Vegetable or Peanut OilSauce: (really this can get way too complicated) I just use the Salty, Sweet, Sour, Spicy tenant. Use what you like. Mix all the ingredients and set aside.1/3 cup Fish sauce or Soy if you are going vegetarian or you can't find the fish sauce. (Salty)1/3 of Tamarind paste(Sweet and Sour) I didn't have enough so I used a little extra Rice Vinegar (Sour).1/4 to 1/3 cup Rice VinegarA pinch of 5 Spice Powder (Spicy)1/4 teaspoon of Chile Flakes (Spicy)Start out with a package of rice noedlos. DO NOT BOIL THEM! If you boil these you've made yourself quite a pot of wallpaper paste. Just soak the package in warm water to soften. Drain well and set aside.Ladies and Gentlemen. Turn up the heat as high on your burner as you can. Gas works best here but in a pinch electric burners will have to do. Let the wok heat thoroughly. Sprinkle some drops of water, when they dance it's time to go.Add the oil. A little smoke is ok. Add the meat give it a minute then keep it moving. Cook about 3 minutes or so. Add the Garlic, Ginger and white parts of Scallions. Keep the mix moving. Now it's Noodle time. Add them in and don't be afraid to break them up. One more time .keep things moving. Add the sauce. Just keep moving, just keep moving, moving, moving, moving. Make a well in the middle of this mound of all things tasty and crack the eggs into the well. Let them set for a minute or so then mix away. Add the green Onions.You're just about done. I like to move to a platter and serve with a bunch of condiments.Sriracha (Hot sauce)Chopped PeanutsCilantro LeavesLime Wedges
