PREPARATION

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Reduce heat, carefully add tofu, and simmer gently until slightly puffed and firmed up, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer tofu to a medium bowl.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. Add kimchi and gochujang and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5–8 minutes. Add kimchi liquid and 8 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until kimchi is softened and translucent, 35–40 minutes.
  • Add scallions, soy sauce, and tofu; simmer gently until tofu has absorbed flavors, 20–25 minutes (tofu will fall apart a little). Add sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Ladle stew into bowls; top each with an egg yolk and sesame seeds.

Nerding Out

Testing out the new surface rt and deciding whether it will be useful blogging device while I am travelling. Seems pretty good so far even with the touch cover and not the type cover. Here is a picture from the camera. Not amazing, it’s decent.

jonketo rides #BikeMS 2011

I got out on my bike for the first time this season. The ride felt really good and involved a beer and a burger in the middle, so nothing to complain about there. I am going to try out using strava to track my rides this year during training. Let’s see how it works.

It was my friends first time in Squamish this weekend, so we went by all the classics. I was going to just let my friend climb Viper, but was persuaded to try some new beta for the start. It works surprisingly well!

I have video of my friend using the new beta as well.

I tried to take some photos of fireworks over the weekend and I realized it was hard! Not to mention the bad location outside of gasworks with a telephone pole in my way, but it was hard just getting ready to shoot with the lens. It was fun and I took some ok shots, but I really want to get some better ones next year. I feel like I was shooting stars except I got more than one chance. Makes me respect astro-photographers who shoot events that occur less than once per year.

jonketo rides #BikeMS

I decided to ride the BikeForMS ride this summer with coworkers at Accenture and Avanade. I am in the fundraising and training phase still as I have two months until the actual ride. The fundraising experience has been humbling to say the least. While I did not expect my friends to not donate, their donations and willingness to trade services/goods for donations has been overwhelming. I have already increased my goal twice and hope to do it a third time. The reason I keep raising my goal is that throughout this experience I keep meeting people who have or know someone with MS. I knew it was prevalent in the NW, but I did not realize to what degree. Being able to touch these people’s lives means a lot to me and it is a good motivator to continue. For most of the people with MS they can’t even ride a bike, so doing so myself and raising some money at the same time is the least I can do.

If you would like to donate and support me in the BikeForMS ride this summer please visit my participant page and click the donate button.
