Temptation

Nanding’s Bakery. A little hole in the wall, in an out-of-the-way part of town. The owner/baker makes his Spanish rolls.”Finger-sized” rolls, hot, buttery, and sweet, totally addictive. I would not be surprised if  you told me the owner did a Robert Johnson for the recipe.

Being so out-of-the-way, I rarely get the chance to frequent the bakery. A good thing. Otherwise I’d be twice (or three times)  the mouse I am now.

Until today. Saw these at 7-Eleven today.

First reaction, yummm!, second reaction, aargh! Now conveniently accessible. Had to buy a package (3 for $1.25). Not hot out of the oven,but freshly baked.

Perfect with hot Kona coffee, provided by the office.

Must not succumb to temptation (at least not too often). Just look away. :)

If you see me in 7-Eleven? Do me a favor and steer me  away from the Spanish rolls? Thanks.

(Local newspaper write-up here)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Cold Sliced Pig Feet

Taste better than it sounds. Usually found on cold plate appetizers at Chinese dinners (over here anyway). Picked up a tray from the Korean grocery store on the way home.

Had mine on a slice of “bread that must not be named” with sriracha mayonnaise.

Made a pasta soup for The Cat.

Penne pasta, turnip tops, romaine lettuce, goji berries, and dried seaweed along with slices of the pig feet. The Cat was happy.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sausage Sunday

Last time we had storm warnings, the church kitchen essentially shut down (understandably), and breakfast selection was pretty dismal.  Picked these up on the way to work.

Good thing, I was right, kitchen was offering this for breakfast.

Not blaming the kitchen, I wouldn’t want to be working under the threat of severe weather conditions either.

Chinese smoked sausage, right up there with bacon, char siu, and pork belly. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Stay safe and  dry.

Hunkered Down

Tropical storm watch today.

Stayed indoors. Food is whatever is available.

The Cat's Bowl

Pre-cooked Kabocha squash, penne pasta, sliced celery, and peanut butter.

The Mouse's Food

Canned pink salmon, togarashi spice, and green onions. The Cat said more like cat food than mouse food. Pfft!

Stay safe and dry.

Eat well.

Almost a year ago (forever in the blog time space continuum), I was lamenting the discontinuance of a a bread product because the name offended a segment of the population (original post here).

A week ago, on the day old shelf, at the Korean supermarket, I bought this.

The bread looks like this.

Lighter in color, texture, and taste than what I was used to to. But, beggars can’t be choosy. Nothing wrong with the quality of the bread, just not what I knew.

Today, at an open market in downtown, one of the vendors was selling this.

Closer to what I knew. Dense, chewy, and a little sweet. Great for SPAM sandwiches. :)

I better frequent the vendor bore often before the PC police get after them. :(

Enjoy. Eat well.
