Recipe: Sweet Potatoe Stir Fry with Veggie Burgers

I invented this. It was delicious.

The photo has nothing to do with it, but it was pretty and recently snowed here.


Stir Fry
1 white sweet potato - peeled and cubed
1/2 Yellow onion - rough chop
8 oz. brown crimini mushrooms - halved & quartered
1 head baby bok choy chopped
1 head Red Chard
4 cloves garlic chopped well
2 tablespoons shredded ginger
4 tablespoons Canola oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Veggie Burgers:
Store bought or what I think was in the freezer that I made this summer
potatoe to bind
red bell pepper
crook neck yellow squash

  • Microwave the sweet potato for 3 minutes with a little water in the bowl
  • Save sweet potato to a bowl with the onion
  • Start Veggie Burgers (see below)
  • In a large bowl order the vegetables from bottom to top: chard, bok choy, mushrooms
  • Heat oil very hot
  • Throw in the sweet potato and onion and brown for 3 minutes
  • add the mushroom
  • add 1/2 the ginger and garlic
  • Add the bok choy and 1/2 cup water and stir fast
  • Add the soy sauce
  • add the mushrooms and the rest of the ginger and garlic
  • Stir fast until the chard is just right. Maybe a little more water to steam.
  • Serve in a deep bowl with the veggie burger on top.

Veggie Burgers:
Brown in skillet in olive oil. Slightly crunchy. I could see this with tempeh too.

I Don't Want to Wake Up Early

I wish we knew the name of this talented songster who stopped by to see us at Burning Man. He rode by on his bike with a guitar on his back. We yelled out "Hey Guitar Man come over and play us a song." He did an hour long concert..

It's a great time to be alive

Barack is what we have needed.

Update: 12/20/08 I feel a lot less gleeful in such a short time. Obama has chosen a homophobe to preach at what would have otherwise been a triumphant moment. We gave a quiet acceptance of Obama to get us out of the Bush quagmire but now the time to stand up to his passive aggressive kicks in the face is here.

David Allen GTD Interview

In non-fire related news my old friend, mentor and dedicated Carlin fan David Allen interviewed me a couple of weeks ago. David is the author of the bestselling book Getting Things Done. His system has kept me on track and flourishing for over fifteen years. The interview is part of the "Connect" subscription on his site. If you're into GTD it's very worth checking out and they have a free trial.

In the interview we discuss interfaces, connecting, social networks, chirp, Google docs, Twitter, Apple and... world peace. It was just great to get all that out of my noodle and I want to thank him for the opportunity. I've posted the interview here.

Fire Near Our House - mariposa yosemite telegraph fire

**Final Update, Friday August 1st 8:00 a.m. - The fire is now 98% contained. Thanks firefighters!

There has been a wild fire raging near our home in Midpines, California. As of Sunday a.m. over 18,000 acres have been burned. Hundreds of homes were evacuated. At 2:30 a.m. on Sunday morning we got a call from the fire department letting us know we should prepare to evacuate. So we gathered the animals and packed the car. We didn't get the follow up call to actually evacuate so we paced all night and finally got some sleep around 8 a.m.

Here is some coverage:
