Learning how to position the light and the software I use to capture images has helped a lot. I do need to slow down a little more and remember all of the steps. I forgot to adjust white balance before shooting this shot and had to do in post.

Its hard to cook and remember everything but I am enjoying the results.

It mixes a lot easier that way I think, without overworking the meat. I glazed it with a mix of ketchup and dry hot mustard. I'm sold on the ST stuffing idea.
Man, I can't wait for those sandwiches.

Kay, thank you for the review of your meat loaf with Stove Top filler. It sounds really good, and I will try that the next time I make it! I'm with ya on the sandwiches....to me that's the best part of making a meat loaf.

Here's are the recipes. The Ants climb a tree I cut in half, and still had some left, after serving three. The amount of bok choy I'm guessing at.

Ants Climb a Tree

8 oz cellophane noodles
16 oz ground pork, or other meat
5 tb soy sauce (I usually use half and half, light and dark)
1 tb sesame oil
6 scallions; sliced thin
6 cloves garlic; minced
1/2 inch ginger; minced
5 tb oil
2 tb chili paste with garlic
2/3 cup water
1 tsp black pepper; or to taste

A. Soak noodles in hot water 20-30 minutes, or 'til soft; drain. Rinse and set aside. Combine meat, 2 tb soy, sesame oil, and half the scallions in a bowl. Arrange remaining ing. on a platter.

B. Heat wok or large heavy saute pan over high heat 'til hot; add oil, swirl, and heat 30 sec. Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry 30 sec. Add chili paste and SF 30 sec. Add meat and SF until it looses all red, about 1 min. Add 3 tb soy and SF 30 sec. Add noodles and SF 1 min. Stir in water and remaining scallions.

C. Cover and cook 3-4 min. over med. heat, or until water is absorbed, turning once. Season to taste with pepper, and serve.

Stir-fried Bok Choy

1 1/4 lbs Bok choy
2 tb oil

Mix together, until dissolved:
2 tb thin soy sauce
2 tsp white rice vinegar
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp tapioca or corn starch

Cut the bock choy up, separating the stems into bite sized pieces, and cutting the greens into half or thirds (for the larger pieces). Wash them both, leaving some water on the greens, for steaming.

Heat the oil in a wok or sauté pan over medium high heat. When shimmering, add the stems, and SF for about 4 minutes, or until the pieces begin to brown on the edges. Add the greens, and toss for a minute or so, until wilted. Add the sauce mixture, and stir until thickened and glazed, and turn into a serving bowl.

Easy for you to say basic garlic sauce. Doesn’t look basic to me ;).
Please share the recipe.
Thank you.
