At the Korean Market

Yesterday. Weird day.

Started off okay. Searched the mall for breakfast. Nothing appealing.

Ended up at the “food court” at the Korean “super” market nearby.

Breakfast special.

Ginseng Chicken "Jook"

Had this once before. Seems like the price went up and the quantity and quality went down a bit.😦

Healthy though.

Wasn’t heading home for dinner yesterday, so in the want column, not in the bought column yesterday.

Satuday’s adventure continues on the next post.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not to worry, The Mouse made his own “messy bowl”.

Pan-charred celery, miso-braised pork belly, Okinawan sweet potato, frozen okra, and green onions. One pot, one bowl, no fuss.🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Tuna Thursday

Started nondescript enough.

Sandwich on the run, from Watanabe Bakery.

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

Tuna Sandwich and Potato Salad Sandwich

The tuna sandwich is a tuna sandwich. Okay. The potato salad sandwich, a long-time “favorite” novelty.

Dinner was a combination of cleaning out the refrig and a continuation of the tuna theme.

A quick sauté of each, a tin of tuna, some olives, and capers.

Much better than the sandwich. But one was on the run, and one was “created”.🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

No Recipe

And no ingredients, except for the egg.

Growing up, my favorite Japanese dish was oyako donburi, simmered egg and chicken on rice. Dunno why. Maybe it was easy to eat, maybe it was one of the cheapest dishes on menus? Anyways, it’s still a go-to dish when I dunno what to eat at Japanese restaurants.

Last night, did a little variation at home. Mind you, no chicken, no onions, and no dashi. And, wasn’t feeling like cooking rice.

Started with quinoa.

Instead of dashi broth, did a miso broth.

Instead of onions, thinly sliced celery and white stem cabbage.

Instead of chicken, leftover miso braised pork belly.

Add a beaten egg and let everything meld together. Ease the whole thing over the quinoa.

Tell the truth, this was even better than oyako donburi. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Detour

Had to take a detour to work yesterday (don’t ask, it’s gross).

Detour took me near here.

Didn’t have to stop in … but …🙂

Picked up a few “distractions”. Hee hee.

Tray

Multi-grain buns from the day-old bin, tonkatsu sandwich, mini donuts (green tea, glazed, chocolate).

Crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. Yummy.

Mini Donuts

Not bad, I think the glazed in the better of the three.

Still deciding what to make of the buns.

Seems like I may have to take the detour for a couple more days.

Happy over the hump day!

Enjoy. Eat well.
