  • Make-Ahead Curried Coconut Quinoa with Shrimp and Basil | Serious Eats : Recipes – While quinoa, a grain de rigeur these days, may work for me as part of a larger dish, I must confess: I find it to be somewhat boring and dry on its own. Knowing how healthy it is, however, I felt I should give it a fair shot in the spotlight. I wanted to make a quinoa dish that I would find exciting enough to eat at work, without immediately looking to the vending machine to fill any flavor quotas for dessert.

    Although curry usually suggests long simmering and layers of flavors, I made a fast-tracked version with coconut milk, vegetable broth, garlic and curry powder by doubling the liquid for cooking quinoa, and then cooked the quinoa in the broth. The curry thickened while the grains soaked up the warm nutty flavors, and there was broth leftover to make this a saucier-than-the-usualy-dry quinoa side.

    Shrimp cooks incredibly fast, and sort of feels like a treat if you bring it to work the next day (since chances are you wouldn't be putting it on your takeout chopped salad). Poaching the shrimp in the excess broth gives this dish a "pot to clean" count of only one, and the excess liquid also kept the quinoa from drying out when I reheated this for lunch the next day.

    The result was a warm, comforting lunch, where the quinoa seemed to melt seamlessly into the curry. Quinoa, we may just get along after all.

  • Triggering tasks remotely with notifyutil and launchd – Brett Terpstra – Let me start this by saying that I’m fully aware that there are multiple ways to accomplish this feat, and that my choice may not have been the perfect one. It happens to work around some frustrations I found with other solutions, but I kind of got on a kick of really wanting to make this work. It works (though it killed my Sunday). It’s pretty complex to describe, though, so I’ll probably end up leaving some holes in the story. If something doesn’t make sense, point it out in the comments and I’ll fill in the blanks.
