The Cat in bed sleeping off a cold. The Mouse lazying around. Some internet Christmas browsing.

Fruit Salad

Apple, Chinese grapefruit, Mandarin orange, pineapple. Breakfast.

Beef Curry Stew over Rice

Japanese take-out down the street. Japanese style curry, a little on the sweet side (which The Mouse doesn’t mind). Really, it’s all about the gravy and rice! Good gravy. Hee hee.

Ginger Onion Musubi

Not typical musubi shaped, flat, kinda like a sandwich. This one had the cold ginger chicken sauce, not the chicken, just the sauce in-between.

Chomp View

Have to love the ginger chicken sauce, which The Mouse does. Made well, could’ve used a bit more salt, or a couple pieces of fried SPAM. Hee hee.

Rest of the time spent napping, and in The Mouse’s case dealing with his own leaky plumbing. Body still not back to normal. Taking its time I guess.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The warehouse did a partial purge of their freezer. Mostly “sample” items that they cannot sell.

Staff was invited to “repurpose/recycle” before the items were trashed.

The Mouse’s haul:

Free Take

A package of seafood bisque, enoki mushrooms, saimin noodles.

The mushrooms were in the freezer, not the best, a little bit freezer burn but still usable in soup.

The Mouse did his own refridge purge for The Cat’s dinner bowl.

Dindin

The last of the pork belly soup, eggplant, enoki mushroom, frozen spinach, dark soy sauce, whiskey, salt, and noodles.

Not the prettiest of bowls but tasty.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ pics, no story, random eats.

Chinese Grapefruit

Worth the effort.

Blueberry Pie

From Murphy’s, an Irish pub, only on Friday’s. The Cat bought for The Mouse. Nom!

Eggplant and Tofu

Panda Express, one of our go-to dishes there.

Vegetable Spring Rolls and Chicken Eggroll

Also from Panda Express. Because The Mouse wanted crunchy. Hee hee.

They describe themselves correctly, American Chinese food. Nothing wrong with that.  😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

Weird, not weird, semantics.

The Mouse wanted some kick to the natto lunchtime. Only hot sauce in the warehouse kitchen was Tabasco, nope, not it, open box of package sriracha sauce, dunno if these were prospective samples or the warehouse actually sells, The Mouse “acquired” one for “testing” purposes.

Sriracha Packet

Not the “Rooster” brand “Eagle”.

The Mouse’s Natto Bento

This version of sriracha is not as “bright” spicy, The Mouse’s opinion, a “richer” spice profile. A warming spice, not an initial hit spice. The Mouse thinks he likes this one just a little better.

Dinner was a “what if” and compromise “chance’em” experience. Started with a MickyD basic burger, The Mouse wanted to add liver pâté and bacon, but neither in the near vicinity. So, The Mouse made do, peanut butter and sliced ham.

The Mouse’s Modified MickyD Burger with Kid-Sized Fries

And shiso from the pot. And yes, The Mouse picked up a happy meal.

Have a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse tries tamale for the first time.

Tamale Plate

Nom! The Mouse likes wrapped food, lau lau, pastele, jung, etc. Tamale fits right in. Yay!

At the same time, The Cat tries horchata for the first time.

Horchata

Kinda like Mexican soy milk? Without the bean taste, The Cat likes.

Now for the rest of the week.

Smoked Pork Cheek

One of the butchers at the warehouse caught a wild boar, a very invasive species here in SPAM Land. In his spare time he smokes meat. The Mouse was lucky to taste the cheek portion, very yum.

The Mouse finally picked up pork bones, order was last week but the warehouse couldn’t find the package, ugh. Head butcher reordered and repackaged. There was supposed to be tails in the mix. Very little tail portions, mostly ribs and backs. Lotsa soup coming. The Mouse will try and salvage tail portions for a cooking experiment.

9 Pounds of Bones

Finally, The Cat picked up a package of mini naan from Costco.

Mini Naan

The Mouse used whatever available and made a ham, apple and shiso mini naan “soft taco” sandwich.

The Mouse’s Dinner

The Mouse forgot a little smidge of mustard, next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.
