A Riff on Loco Moco

The Mouse’s bowl, it had the “spirit” of a loco moco, just different. 🙂

Brown rice (instead of white), steamed egg (instead of fried), anchovies with oil (instead of hamburger patty with gravy). Mmm!

The Mouse acknowledges this might be an acquired taste (especially the anchovies), but The Mouse really liked.

And the steamed egg (three minutes) created a better “gravy” than a fried egg (squishier). Less clean-up too. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

No Recipe

Freezer and pantry. Elbow macaroni, frozen spinach, frozen tilapia. The Mouse tried to cook in one pot, ended up using two.

Steamed tilapia over elbow macaroni and broccoli. Salt and pepper to taste.

The Mouse thought about hot oil, but it would have been too much clean-up. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Plant Butter

The Mouse bought.

Vegan butter. Coconut oil based.

The Mouse tried it.

Vegan butter on pita.

Hmm. Not quite butter, The Mouse is not used to the taste and mouth feel, definitely coconut, not butter.

Its okay, not super thrilled. Oh well, try try.

Stay safe and well.

BTW, if this post looks funny, WordPress doesn’t seem to allow me to edit in classic mode anymore, The Mouse really dislikes the changed format. Ugh! “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix!” At least before The Mouse could choose the mode. 😦

“SPAM Sobanara”?

Back in the day when The Mouse could digest diary, one of his favorite pasta was carbonara. But with age, the dish is now forbidden.

The Mouse, playing in the kitchen. Crispy SPAM, soba noodles, olive oil, frozen broccoli, wakame, salt and pepper to taste.

“SPAM Sobanara”

In The Mouse’s opinion, tossing the drained soba noodles (and still hot) with olive oil immediately after cooking was key. The Mouse enjoyed.

Completely different from pasta carbonara but … 🙂

Wondering … next time maybe adding natto to the mix. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

As you might be able to tell, The Mouse likes leftovers, most of the time.

The Mouse’s lunch, from remnants.

Roasted Sweet Potato and Beef Stew

The sweet potato is a remnant from assembling The Cat’s bento, the stew is from The Cat’s dinner (from the Irish Pub nearby). The Mouse thinks there may be some beer in the recipe. 🙂

In any case, Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

Another Bowl

Probably not as “healthy” as the previous bowl, still warm and comforting.


Tube pasta, leftover dumplings, wakame, Vienna sausage. Mmm. 🙂

Weather has been just a little chilly (relatively speaking).

Stay safe and well.

A lazy meal for The Mouse. Not much prep, cook, clean-up.

The Mouse’s Lunch

Thin egg noodles, wakame, canned tuna, salt and pepper to taste, splash of olive oil. The tuna was packed in water. The Mouse prefers the oil option. Oh well.

Stay safe and well.

Or, it could also be titled “smothered”. Inspired by another YouTube video. A simple double hamburger from MickeyD’s with fries.

Double Hamburger with Fries

An order of vegetarian chili from Zippy’s, over everything.

Covered or Smothered

Needless to say, the dish no longer was hand hold held. The Mouse used a fork, open faced. Mmm.

Next time though, The Mouse is asking for extra pickles. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
