Archive for the ‘Bento’ Category

The Mouse got lucky yesterday. Two lau lau bento on clearance.

Lau Lau Bento

$2.99 each, plus one bento had a baked chicken. 🙂

The Mouse splurged and also bought a container of lomi salmon. Mmm. The Mouse happy.

Be safe and well.

Waste not, want not. The leftover pork shank, and meat was used to its ultimate end.

Pork Shank Bowl

Rice, pork shank meat, kabocha. The extra Bulldog tonkatsu sauce kicked it up. The Mouse’s lunch. Mmm!

The Cat’s Bento

Rice, Brussels sprouts, pork shank meat, kabocha, roasted sweet potato. The bento container fully loaded.

Our server packed the bones separate. Good job!

Shank Bone

The Mouse simmered for hours with ginger and vinegar to make a broth.

Pork Shank Broth

Frozen vegetables and canned bamboo shoot to finish. The Cat was even able to dig out marrow from the bone. 🙂

Be safe and well. \ooo/

Not really The Beatles inspired. More digging through the kitchen.

Ginger, raw peanuts, canned cannellini beans, oatmeal, peanut powder, an egg, and salt to taste.

Throw everything together and pray for the best. 🙂

The Cat’s Soup/Stew

A sprinkle of paprika and chives for color. The Cat seemed to like.

The Mouse found a “remnant plate” at the supermarket.

Pastele “Mini Bento”

Scoop of rice, scoop of mashed potato with gravy, one pastele, $3.99. Good deal as the grocery deli was selling one pastele as a side for $3.99. Rare treat for The Mouse. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Puzzle Eats

Food that reminded The Mouse of puzzles.

Salmon Tic-Tac-Toe

The Mouse had in mind something else for lunch but the meeting ended too early and time was too early for the tea house to open. The Mouse was thinking about the Taiwan pork floss omelet sandwich but ended up with the tic-tac-toe instead. A good substitute. 🙂

The other day, The Cat had an event that needed her office building’s security/maintenance personnel assistance. To thank them she picked up pastries for snacks. She also picked up for her office minions.

Pastries

The Cat brought home the double chocolate coffee cake (bottom right) for The Mouse. Is it only The Mouse or does the arrangement kinda look like a Tetris puzzle piece? Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

Fish Fry

Grocery store sold out of the bento The Mouse was looking for, visited two in the neighborhood. “Settled” for a container of fried butterfish.

Fried Butterfish

The Mouse thinks pieces are “leftover” after the filets are used for bento. The Mouse tried a piece, super crispy, almost like a chip. Not bad.

“Assembled” The Cat’s bento, rice, roasted yam, scrambled egg, fried butterfish, and boiled Napa cabbage. The Cat will report feedback.

Be safe and well.
