Break Fast

First meal after the PET scan.

Meatloaf with Vegetables

From the nearby grocery store. The Mouse more vegetables because his eating routine was disrupted by the pre-test eating restrictions.

The meatloaf and veggies were mmm, good. 🙂

A couple more scans and tests in the coming weeks. Ugh!

Stay safe and well.

Restricted Diet

The Mouse has to have some medical scanning done (I dunno what, so confused). Anyways, from 1:00 PM on, only protein today (no carbs, no sugar, only water, salt and pepper okay). Oh well, could be worse.

Yesterday, The Mouse bought pork and beef chunks (cuts for pork adobo and beef stew).

Pork Chunks
Beef Chunks

The Mouse seared the chunks, drained the excess fat, then poached them in a mixture of olive oil and water.

The pork turned out a little better than the beef, maybe not quite enough liquid. Still good though.

After tomorrow, The Mouse is probably gonna need a laxative (sorry, TMI). Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

P.S. The pork is mostly for The Cat, but The Mouse will eat some too. The beef is primarily for The Mouse, maybe exclusively.

Just a Burger

The Mouse ran an errand looking for a “treat” for The Cat’s Halloween.

Since he was there, picked up a burger at the mall.

Classic Burger

Medium rare, substitute plain baked potato for French Fries. Part 1, The Mouse ate half of the baked potato and everything else except the hamburger patty. The hamburger patty and half of the baked potato is Part 2.

The Mouse eats weird, what else is new. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

A pound of ground beef, locally sourced.

Ground Beef

Basic ingredients:

Onion Soup Mix, Canned Mushrooms

Roughly shaped into balls, browned meatballs, removed meatballs and drained excess oil. Returned meatballs to pot, added onion soup mix, canned mushrooms (drained and rinsed), no salt (The Mouse figured enough salt in the soup mix), rice wine, a drop or two of coconut vinegar. Simmered for half an hour.

Cooled the pot in ice water, skimmed excess fat. Portioned one serving (The Cat doesn’t usually eat beef), Cooked frozen mixed vegetables and okra, drained, added meatballs and soup to warm.

Meatball and Vegetable Soup with Tree Fungus

The Mouse liked. Too bad the grocery store doesn’t sell smaller bricks. Small bricks would be more practical for The Mouse. Oh well.

Stay safe and well.
