I just recently learned that you can make perfect jīdàn gēng, steamed egg custard, in 5 minutes in the microwave and I want to eat it for every single meal for the rest of my life!!
For the recipe: NYT Food featured it recently but I don't have a subscription (yet!) so I just googled a bunch of recipes and cobbled together something that looked right to me. Here's what I did: (see next tweet)
Beat 2 eggs and 2/3 cup chicken broth (many of the Korean recipes used broth, lots of Chinese ones used water, and for Japanese chawanmushi, which I love, you can use dashi, but I didn't have any). I microwave the broth for 30 seconds so it isn't too cold. Add a little salt. 1/
For super smooth texture you can strain that mixture. Put into microwave-safe bowl and put a plate on top to seal it. I have a 1200w microwave, so I cooked it at 40% power for about 4:30 mins. Then I kept adding 30 seconds until it was just set in the middle. 2/
I've been topping it with scallions from my garden and soy sauce (I cut into it to let the soy sink in) and some sriracha. I'd love to add some bonito flakes. And I'm eager to try making a slightly sweet version. It's silky smooth and comforting and filling. So good!! 3/3

🚨🚨Heads up! Today’s #vtpoli #covid19vt press briefing begins early, at 11:30am. You can listen on @vprnet and I’ll be tweeting! Consider this an extra early start to the thread.🚨🚨
After it’s over, stick around for a broadcast of @ButWhyKids. Our latest episode of this international show for kids is set right here in Vermont, at Champlain Orchards. That will air when the post-presser analysis ends.
As we await the start of the briefing, take a look at this, from the state’s new modeling report. Cases are up significantly in Vermont. You can find the full report here: dfr.vermont.gov/about-us/covid…

Okay, Tuesday press briefing any moment now. Tune to @vprnet to hear analysis up until it starts and afterwards. And here's a thread for those who don't want to sit and listen for 2 hours! #vtpoli #vted #covid19vt
@vprnet A few asides. I got a COVID test last Thursday afternoon (I had attended a family funeral in Maine--masked indoors but unmasked for the outdoor reception, so I wanted to be on the safe side). Results came back on Saturday morning. Anyone still struggling to get timely results?
And I just got this note from my kids’ elementary school. Now very much hoping to hear more this hour. #vted

Governor Scott's weekly press conference about to start. Vermont kids are headed back to school this week, and the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine just got standard FDA approval. We'll see what the assembled panel has to say. #vted #yourshotvt #covid19 #vtpoli Here's your thread!
Scott says the White House told governors today that clinical trials for vaccines in kids under the age of 12 are going well and Pfizer should be submitting data for emergency approval in September. However...
...this morning on NPR, NIH director Francis Collins said he didn't think the vaccine would be available for kids before the end of the year. npr.org/2021/08/24/103…

Press conference beginning soon. Heads up that if the jury comes back in the Chauvin case, @vprnet will go to live coverage from NPR. I will continue to listen to and tweet the COVID press conference, and you'll be able to find the audio at vpr.org.
@vprnet And we're beginning with Mike Pieciak today, as the governor is off at the weekly call the Biden administration has with state governors.
Pieciak says the modeling and statistics give the Scott administration confidence that it is on the right track. This week's weekly case total is down 24% over the last 7 days and down 39% since April 1st.

20 years ago, I wanted to write my senior thesis on the @BAA Boston marathon. I thought it was an interesting example of Emile Durkheim’s theory of collective effervescence. (Yes, that was some haircut. I had buzzed it the previous fall for a class, but that’s a different story.)
Problem was, no one in Harvard’s social anthropology department would advise me. They said I should have gone to B.U. if I had wanted to study sports anthropology. (Maybe I would have liked college if I had!)
And they said my idea was more sociology than anthropology. (I’m still not sure where the line is really drawn.) So I gave up. On the thesis, but not on the idea. I decided instead of writing a senior thesis, I would use that same amount of time to train to run the marathon.

Here comes your Vermont COVID press conference thread for Tuesday, March 23rd.
Human Services Secretary Mike Smith kicks things off as Governor Scott is busy on a weekly call with other governors and the White House. Smith says we could hit a milestone this week where 1 in 5 Vermonters (he may have said VT adults) are fully vaccinated with all needed doses.
Those age 60 and up become eligible this Thursday. 50+ starts Monday 3/29. The state's preferred method of registering for a vaccine is through the state website. However, the call center is also an option. Info on both can be found at healthvermont.gov/myvaccine.
