Bok choy is to be properly washed and drained. If the stem is too large it is to be cut off and cooked separate. Cooking Oil is heated in a frying pan within which chopped garlic is placed to fry.

Two, she single-handedly made Elmo the most popular Sesame Street character ever for males 13 and up (though, Kevin Clash ultimately made him the least popular shortly thereafter).
