Clear, with a chance of meatballs

Yesterday evening I tried to make the meatball hors d’oeuvres I mentioned in a previous post, and did.  It took much longer than I thought, but that’s fine.  I stilled learned more about the Kitchen Aid and using a camera while I’m cooking.  It’s hard and something to get used to.

The ideas I came up with were to stage the ingredients and use a tripod and reposition the camera around the kitchen as things “get done” or prepared.  The tripod comes in to the picture (pun intended) for the next recipe.

The Metro Beater Blade works awesome on this stuff as well, didn’t need a spatula and clean-up was a breeze.  The meat grinding attachment doesn’t do well with fat, so trim off as much as you can before you grind it into ground beef.  Your mixer will have a much easier time and you won’t waste 15 minutes trying to clean out the die before you can even wash it.  The mixer still did an outstanding job.

My phone ended up taking the photos below and the face of the phone is quite gross as well, but it did do the trick
