The Mouse bought The Cat a bento from the grocery store last week. Timing was off. Bento went into the freezer.

Tic-Tac-Toe Bento

Maki sushi, sesame mochi balls, pickled cucumber, simmered burdock root, potato croquette, fried gyoza, steamed rice with furikake, inari sushi, and butterfish.

Yesterday, The Mouse thawed out the bento, packed the rice and butterfish into her bento today (she can microwave it). The Mouse lightly steamed the maki sushi and inari sushi and lightly toasted the potato croquette and sesame mochi ball for lunch. The gyoza, burdock, and cucumbers went into The Cat’s chicken foot (one foot) soup.

The Cat comes home for dinner since tax season is taking a break. “Light soup” is the special of the day.

One chicken foot, wood-ear fungus, fresh ginger, and coconut vinegar to simmer. Soba noodles and white stem cabbage just before service, The cucumber, burdock root, and gyoza to finish.

Chicken Foot Soup

Oh yeah, a splash of whiskey to get the soup happy. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.
