Weekend Recap

Not too much happened.

Picked up a couple of mangoes at the farmers market for The Cat.

The left is from the Philippines (or was it Mexico), the right from Maui. The Cat like the Maui one better.

Used The Martha to braise chicken feet.

Lots of naps.

Hope your long weekend went well (if you had one).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Low and Slow

The Cat’s slightly under the weather (theoretically though aren’t we all under the weather?) rimshot. Hee hee.

Chicken (feet) will cure all.

Just out of the package, pedicured, and par-boiled (removes the “impurities”).

Pot, water, ginger, vinegar, and the chicken feet (after washing and discarding the “bath water”). Simmer low and slow until it feels right (about 3-4 hours).

Chill down and refrigerated at least overnight.

Chilled Soup

Chilled Soup

A tiny bit of fat, mostly gelled soup, could almost turn the pot upside down. Success!

Add vegetables, noodles, etc during the warm up process. Full of collagen. Happy Cat.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Also known as “drunken chicken soup”.

Marinated Boneless Chicken Thigh

I know, supposed to use the bones for richer flavor. Didn’t come with bones, not my choice. Tossed with ginger, a tiny bit of salt, and vodka. In the freezer until needed.

Water, the chicken thighs, fresh mushrooms, more ginger, and kale … come to just boil, and short simmer.

More vodka to finish.

Happy chicken, happy Cat. 🙂

Another variant. Inspired by Panda Express take-out chain.

Chopped Ginger, Zucchini, Mushrooms ("Moo Goo")

Add pre-cooked chicken (house-made), salt, pepper, sugar, liquor at hand (whiskey, whisky, vodka, rum, Shao Xing wine), normal “recipe” (throw everything together and hope for the best).

Moo Goo Gai Pan!

I think Panda Express calls theirs mushroom chicken, “what’s in a name?”, semantics. 🙂

The Cat liked.

Happy Aloha Friday!

Enjoy. Eat well.
