The Cat brought home balsamic vinegar. The Mouse used a little bit to deglaze the pan.

Brussels Sprouts

Pan-seared/braised, light balsamic vinegar deglaze.

Bought a jar of adzuki bean “butter”.


Heavy adzuki bean taste, light butter. The Mouse tried on a slice of bread.

Try Try

Next, The Mouse may try and mix a tiny bit of peanut butter. 🙂

Be safe, eat good.

Just a bento from the grocery store, not clearance (a rarity). Hee hee.

Li Hing Mui

Home-made, not by The Mouse, one of The Cat’s business associates.

Prune and Apricot Li Hing Mui

Very mild sweet sour. Nice. The Mouse imagines the mui would play nice with a pork roast. Mmm! 🙂

Or just eat as a snack.

The Mouse wanted sweet pickle flavor. Buying a whole jar is a waste, the pickles turn yellow before we can finish the jar. The Mouse picked up a worthy alternative.

EZ Squeeze

The Mouse is more likely to finish.

The vessels by which the relish was consumed. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s “Cheat Plate”

Fried and salty food with sweet pickles/relish. Mmm! 🙂

From Panda Express: Chicken egg roll, and vegetable spring rolls (2). From grocery store: corn dog.

The Mouse picked up a one choice for The Cat.

Steamed Rice, Mixed Vegetables, Mushroom Chicken

For Murphy’s Law reasons, The Cat didn’t have the food for dinner, she will take it for her bento.

Be safe and well.

After medical scan and meeting with church management (my bosses, part-time).

Chili and Rice

Rainbow Drive-In, meat is chunky, a good thing. 🙂

A package of Korean rice condiment (“furikake”?).


The Cat’s rice bowl with the “sprinkles”.


The main difference between Japanese furikake and the Korean condiment, the Korean condiment seems fried with a lot of oil, the Japanese furikake is just dried. The Korean seaweed has a shorter shelf life once opened, due to the oil. Can’t compare, both are good. 🙂

Does anyone know what the Korean condiment is called? Much mahalo.

The rice went with leftover oxtail soup, with watercress enhancement.

Oxtail Soup with Watercress

Be safe and well.
