garlic sesame noodles.

Sunday dinner. Garlic sesame noodles. Easy as apple pie.

Heat oil in a wok. Saute minced garlic and diced spring onions. Boil noodles in a pot with a dash of salt.

Add your favorite stir-fry vegetables. I had chopped cabbage, diced jalapenos and sliced mushrooms. Add a scrambled egg. Or two.

Add the boiled noodles to the wok and stir fry for several minutes. I like the brown-burnt parts on noodles.

In a bowl, mix together two tbsp soya sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar and one tbsp of sesame oil. Add a dash of salt.

Mix the sauce with the noodles and let the noodles soak up the sauce. Add a dollop of Sriacha for some heat.

Serve with sprinkled toasted sesame seeds.

bacon meatloaf.

Tonight we're making meatloaf! With BACON!

This is my first attempt at making meatloaf. Baking at 350F, a delicious tomato-ey, beef-ey smell is pervading through the kitchen.

--Soak six slices of white bread in one cup of milk.

--Mix ground beef with Parmesan cheese, parsley, three eggs, minced garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, and the milky-bread.

--Layer the meat mixture on the roasting pan in a loaf-shape.

--Cover the meatloaf with slices of thin bacon.

--In a bowl, mix one cup ketchup with Dijon mustard, a large dash of Tabasco sauce and brown sugar.

--Spread the tomato mixture over the bacon slices and stick it into the oven for an hour.

smells heavenly!

I know the pictures ain't much but it was a mad good meatloaf.
