The random shit that goes through my head.
I write stuff. You can find my work at The Awl, Free Williamsburg, the Brooklyn Paper, RH Reality Check, or, amongst other places, on Twitter. My email is erica (dot) sackin (at) gmail (dot) com.
I also do PR/communications strategy, and have worked for President Obama, Planned Parenthood, and now work for Mozilla. I've been called one of the ten women shaping the future of politics, and one of the 50 hottest people in online politics. But my friends, who know me best, just call me snacks.
These are so good.
No, I swear to god this is delicious.
In a stock pot, add the oil, onion and garlic. Cook on medium heat and stir constantly, until they get somewhat soft.
Add the mushrooms, reduce heat to low, and cover pot. Let cook until mushrooms have cooked down. Stir occasionally.
Add fish sauce, vinegar, soy sauce and Worcester sauce. Mix.
Add beet greens and scallions. Mix. Let cook for about 2 minutes.
Add vegetable broth and lime. Mix. Let simmer for 1 minute.
Add water, Miso paste and peanut butter, and mix thoroughly. Let cook for another 5-10 minutes. Add more of any of the other ingredients to taste.
Eat the shit out of that soup.
So honored to be on the Forbes 30 Under 30 Tech List!
Erie and I started Tech LadyMafia a little over 3 years ago because didn’t believe anyone who told us “there were no women in Tech”. What a load of bullshit. Between the 2 of us, it turns out our network includes over a thousand STEMinists- everyone from NASA astronaut hopefuls, inventors, engineers, biophysicists, journalists and digital strategists. Yes, I made STEMinist a thing. You’re welcome.
Ladies, if you’d like to join, we would love to have you!
Gents, you can join the men’s auxiliary- they plan our annual picnic. JK! But if you’d like to support us there’s a really simple thing you can do: if you are asked to speak on a panel/conference or do any kind of roundtable interview thing, please condition your participation on the organizers finding a woman (or a few!) who can join.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
