Miso Soup with Fish

Miso fish soup

it’s that time of the year again… winter is coming indeed!
Here’s my recipe:

  • 1/2 tea spoon of the following: ginger powder, caraway, cumin, dried garlic, salt
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 100gr white fish filet
  • 70gr noodles (I’m using the Barilla Capellini no. 1)

fry the condiments together with the onion until translucent
boil the fish with some bay leaves until tender
add the fish to the frying pan, strain the broth, add the miso and cook the pasta in it
put everything in a bowl and eat 🙂

leftovers dinners – franks & taters

Another leftovers recipe I cooked up last night

In a pan, grill a couple of frankfurters sliced in the middle. Meanwhile, microwave a potato then slice it in large cubes and add to the franks. Slice a banana to match the size of the potato cubes and add to the mix. Splash half a cup of cranberry juice over those and let it reduce. It will mostly evaporate leaving only the taste infused in the ingredients. Season with some salt and half a teaspoon of chipotle sauce.

Serve hot with some rice or pasta or even some sliced “pain de campagne” (whatever you have left in the fridge).

Bon appetit 🙂

Dave’s Notepad

We were chatting in the morning and my colleague Dave said:

echo “blog post about distro choice” | mail -s “blog post” david@mydomain.org
that’s my ‘notepad’. 🙂

I thought that was pretty useful, but tried to make it easier by creating a bash alias. Turns out it’s better to use a bash function instead. (see this note). So my ‘jot’ function is:
function jot() { echo "$1" | mail -s "$2" abdallah@mydomain.com; }

I also noticed, that emails sent from my laptop were not reaching. It seems Ubuntu comes with Exim4 as a default MTA. I’m not too familiar with Exim, so I used the occasion to learn a new trick.

I might use this for micro-blogging next… let me go set it up 🙂
