Chicken Cous Cous

Chicken couscous salad
This recipe will take less than half an hour; substantially less if
you’re fast at chopping vegetables or have someone to help. It is also
very healthy.

Chicken Couscous Salad
1 1/4 c chicken broth (fat free, low sodium)
1 c couscous
2 cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 bunch thinly-sliced green onions
1 chopped, peeled cucumber
1/2 c chopped parsley
2 T pine nuts, toasted
1/2 c bell pepper, orange or red (recipe calls for radishes, but we hates them)

1/2 c white wine vinegar
3 T extra virgin olive oil
2 t ground cumin
1 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
6 cloves garlic, minced

Bring the chicken broth to a boil, then turn off the heat. Stir in
couscous, cover, let stand 5 minutes. While the couscous cooks, chop
up all the vegetables. In a separate bowl, mix all the dressing
ingredients. Fluff the couscous and add it to the vegetables, add the
chicken, and pour the dressing over the salad to combine.

Nutritional info: 43% carbs, 42% protein, 16% fat. Split into fifths,
and each is 329 calories. And 1/5 is actually a reasonable dinner —
I’ve made this for myself and two friends, and had at LEAST two
servings left over.

Dear T-Mobile

Dear T-Mobile,

If you would like to lower your churn rate, here is what you must do.

1.) Get better phones AND
2.) Lower your prices OR
3.) Build a better network.

Here is the problem in a nutshell. Your network is not as good as Verizons(we have corporate accounts with both of companies and know this first hand.) Verizon’s prices have come down to be competitive with you. So at the same price, they have the better network. This means you lose. Before, you had the lower price, but they had the better network, so it was a toss up. Now they have the better network at the same cost. Unless this is fixed by the time our contracts come up for renewal, you will lose our business.

White Elephant 2010 – notext

I had been waiting on sending my white elephant for a couple of reasons. One of them was I was hoping to regift some of the stuff I received in my white elephant. The other was that I am thinking I will get to deliver mine in person, very very soon.

It showed up in my office this week, completely unexpected. I have a lot of packages delivered to work, and it didn’t have a label or letter to indicated its white elephantness. I proceeded to open it, and examine the contents. I was confused, and then it dawned on me, this was my white elephant. This was confirmed later that day by a message from my sender, notext.

Mr. Notext had the gall, the absolute gall, to send me useful things! Check the gallery below for pictures!

Simple Tomato Sauce Receipe


Serves 4 as a main course; makes enough sauce to lightly coat most of a pound of spaghetti

28 ounces (800 grams) whole peeled tomatoes from a can (San Marzano, if you can find them)*
5 tablespoons (70 grams) unsalted butter
1 medium-sized yellow onion, peeled and halved
Salt to taste

Put the tomatoes, onion and butter in a heavy saucepan (it fit just right in a 3-quart) over medium heat. Bring the sauce to a simmer then lower the heat to keep the sauce at a slow, steady simmer for about 45 minutes, or until droplets of fat float free of the tomatoes. Stir occasionally, crushing the tomatoes against the side of the pot with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat, discard the onion, add salt to taste (you might find, as I did, that your tomatoes came salted and that you didn’t need to add more) and keep warm while you prepare your pasta.

Serve with spaghetti, with or without grated parmesan cheese to pass.
