The Mouse still working through Chef H’s gift basket of vegetables and pineapple (the pineapple is yet to be tackled). Yesterday, tiny tomatoes.

Cute Yeah?

After rinsing, The Mouse sprinkled olive oil, salt, pepper, dried oregano, and garlic flakes on the tomatoes and into the toaster oven.

After they were toasted, but not saucy, The Mouse tossed the tomatoes with angel hair pasta and a tin of tuna (packed in oil).

The Mouse’s Lunch

Too bad there were no capers nor black olive in the pantry, but other than that, The Mouse was pleased with his no-recipe try. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse picked up a try try package from the Japanese grocery store.

Seasoned Bamboo

The Mouse wasn’t sure how to use, the ingredients seemed to point to the Japanese salty, sweet, umami taste so The Mouse used the package to base broth for The Cat’s soup. Added Shanghai cabbage for vegetable.

“Instant” Soup

The Cat didn’t seem to mind. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Part II.

The Cat’s order:

Bubu arare crusted big glory bay salmon, whole grain mustard vinaigrette, organic greens, tomato, spanish onions, cucumber. The dish was a salad but kitchen provided a bowl of rice when requested. The Cat liked, salmon was perfectly cooked (just over raw in the center).

The Mouse order from the wine bar menu.

Certified angus beef sliders: black pepper mayo, swiss cheese, house made potato bun (dairy intolerance). Very coarse ground. The Mouse liked. The Mouse could definitely order this again. The Cat said the meat smell was too much for her.

For the “fries” portion, The Mouse ordered ‘patatas bravas’: crispy fried potatoes, togarashi mayo, furikake, tobiko, katsuobushi.

Think spicy tuna sauce but on potatoes. These were really good, served hot enough that the katsuobushi was still “dancing”. Paw up.

As good as the potatoes were, The Mouse still preferred the fried Brussels sprouts. Nest time.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The Mouse got his second vaccination for the thing that cannot be named. He feels a little safer now.

Just The Mouse finishing bits and pieces.

Mixed plate: grilled chicken, SPAM, banana, roasted sweet potato and carrot.

Not photogenic but The Mouse was satisfied. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse had a thought (which could be weird), savory oatmeal. Apparently, The Mouse is not the only one. more than a few pages on the internet. Basically think of oatmeal as a grain, which it is.

The Mouse used a package of instant original (unflavored) oatmeal, dehydrated vegetable, a little bit of white miso.

Ingredients Assembled

Added hot water, stirred, and waited.

Savory Oatmeal

This was very good (The Mouse surprised himself). Think risotto, or rice porridge. Too bad The Mouse couldn’t add cream or cheese. But still good on its own. Best ingredient was the miso. Will definitely do this again. Maybe mushrooms, bacon, sardines maybe?, sauteed onions? fried SPAM? Yes! The list (and The Mouse’s imagination) goes on. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
