SPAM Musubi-ish

Picked this up from the other day.

SPAM Spread

SPAM Spread

(Sorry, out of focus, still using a iPhone 3G :( )

My father used to eat a lot of Underwood Deviled Ham, looked kinda similar. Plus a have a soft spot for SPAM. :)

Dad used to spread the deviled ham on soda crackers or Wonder bread toast. I had other ideas.

Some leftover mixed grains and Korean style toasted and seasoned seaweed.

SPAM Musubi deconstructed, kinda.

Tah Dah!

Tah Dah!

I know, not “official” SPAM musubi ingredients, I twist on them. Taste better than it looks. Trust me.

For balance, also prepared a tomato salad.

Tomato, green onions, capers (with a little brine), and apple cider vinegar. Simple.

The rest of the can went on an open-faced sandwich (white bread of course!).

SPAM Bruschetta?

Just so you know, I did not eat the whole can myself. Sautéed The Cat’s vegetables with some spread.

Celery and Tomato Saute with SPAM Spread

Think Vietnamese fish sauce, Chinese fermented shrimp paste, XO sauce, you get the idea. The Cat liked.

SPAM … endless possibilities. Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Three hours! Good thing I wasn’t in a rush to eat. :)

After soaking and cooking (took more water than regular rice, even other mixed grains, I guess it was the beans).

Not bad. The Cat liked it. Very hardy, sticks to your ribs. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Friday Food

Changed where I catch the bus to go home and the bus number. Downtown instead of the mall. Different places to get food. :)

The Mandalay Restaurant website advertises take-out plates for reasonable prices. Trouble was the page was dated 2009. On a whim, since I was waiting for the bus anyway, checked out the take-out plates, same price … score!

Beef and Tendon Stew, Green Beans, Fried Rice

Beef and Tendon Stew, Green Beans, Fried Rice

Mmm. Tender beef (I think it was brisket) with melting connective tissue, soft tendons, and lots of turnips (best vegetable for beef stew, in my opinion). The beans were good too. My only complaint was the fried rice was only vegetables and egg, no char siu, Chinese sausage, or SPAM even. A minor detail.

Yay! A decent place for food.

Definitely over my recommended weekly beef intake. Oh well, diet tomorrow. :)

Have a good weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

National Cheeseburger Day

Didja know that? Me neither. Several blogs and advertisements mentioned it. One ad said it was my patriotic duty to eat a cheeseburger today. Hmm, wouldn’t go that far, but an excuse to hunt for one. :)

Been wanting to try Teddy’s Bigger Burgers for awhile now (ever since they opened a branch on our side of the island). Now I had a reason.

Cup

Cup

Went with the Combo #2. Seven ounce beef burger, fries, drink. Added Swiss cheese. Is it un-patriotic to not order American cheese? :)

Combo #2

Combo #2

Potato bun, burger patty, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickle slices, and swiss cheese.

Burgers include “special” sauce (mayo and BBQ sauce), uhm, requested it on the side (so far, not really into BBQ sauce).

Special Sauce

Special Sauce

Good thing I had it on the side, just my opinion, not a fan. Just my opinion again, I prefer Mickey D’s special sauce (I know, a guilty pleasure).

The burger and fries were well prepared, and pretty tasty (although, I think the seven ounce patty is my dietary beef allocation for the week). One plus of the place was  that malt vinegar was available (my favorite french fry condiment, next to ketchup).

There you have it, how I celebrated National Cheeseburger Day. Hee hee

Happy National Cheeseburger Day, wherever you are.

BTW, I’m starting a lobby to declare a National SPAM Musubi Day tomorrow. Hee hee.

Enjoy.  Eat well.

Beef Stew with Tendon, Look Funn Noodle Soup

The majority of the time, given the choice between rice or noodles, The Mouse chooses rice. Except for Chinese beef stew with tendon, gotta be with noodles in soup, weird yeah?

A Perfect Bite
