A friend of mine has also made this, and he says that using a quality dark soy sauce makes a huge difference. He used lighter stuff to give to his kids, and it was still good, but nowhere near as yummy as with the darker stuff. His looked much darker, and the sauce was more apparent.

I didn't find the recipe. Do I have to sign in on your blog to get it?

Shouldn't, I don't think. It was one of the earlier ones, might have to check the archive for the first week of January--should be a drop down on the left-hand navigation.

If you can't find it, I'll send it to you this evening from the house (can't see blogs from work either).

Hmmm...neither. I'd forgotten about that. Cumin scented buffalo kebabs. Recipe called for beef, I swapped in buffalo instead.

Ground buffalo? And that doesn't fall off the skewers while you're grilling?

Wasn't ground. Sorry, I was thinking of something completely different. The picture is of the kebabs, and it's buffalo steak tips.

The ground pork was in ants on a branch.

What are ants on a branch?

ants on a log is peanut butter on celery sticks with raisins on top. Learned that gem in Kindergarten. And I still like it!

Ground pork, green beans, in a soy based ginger-garlic sauce. Modification of a recipe from someone's childhood, ants on a rope (noodle).

Ants on a branch
4 T peanut oil
1 1/4 pound green beans, rinsed, cleaned, trimmed, cut to 3/4-1 1/4 inch section
1 T minced fresh ginger
1 T minced garlic
1/2 t flakes crushed red pepper
1/2 pound ground pork
1/3 c chicken stock
2 T soy sauce
1 T rice vinegar
1 1/2 t corn starch
1/4 c thin sliced green onion
Rice

Heat the peanut oil in a large pan. Add ginger, garlic and pepper. Cook, stirring often, for 3 minutes. Add pork, brown fully, stirring to break into small pieces. Add green beans, cook for 5-7 minutes, until beans begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Combine stock, soy sauce, vinegar, and corn starch. Whisk to mix. Add to pan, stir, cook until thickened slightly. Serve over rice, top with sliced green onions.

Yum that sounds gooood. I love guacomole.

Pizza goldfish (crackers). I'd rather eat the above though. Or some of it.

Edit: Now I'm also having some asian pear, which makes it a tad better.

Made old fashioned Italian meat-a-balls like gramma's.
Ground sirloin and bulk Italian sausage, all the right seasonings.
When husband came home he said it smelled like my gramma's house, and I was so pleased.
Served them in home-canned tomato puree. Yeah, I'm old-school.

I just bought a reserve bar so that doesn't happen hehe. Dark chocolate with pieces of orange and almond slivers.

Leftover lentil soup. I like lentil soup, but forget how much it makes! 2 dinners, and at least 5 lunches...and there's still some in the fridge.

Just steamed some broccoli in a Zip'N Steam bag. Yum. Husband (not a broccoli fan) is complaining of the smell.

Broccoli is one of the crops that's grown locally. Driving around the fields when it's being harvested is STINKY! Not as bad as cauliflower or brussel sprouts, but still, pretty odiferous.

I like driving through the fields just before the sweet pea harvest--heady stuff!

Ate 2 World's Finest Mint chocolate squares from a box that was given to me by a co-worker.
