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.

Working through chef’s vegetable balsket. First turnip and tops, the tops were a little wilted, nothing wrong, seems turnip tops naturally wilt fast.

The Mouse soaked them in water for a while (it’s good to work at home 🙂 )


The Mouse peeled and simmered the turnips for The Cat’s bento.

The Cat’s Bento

Base of rice and sweet potato, takan and pork belly, turnips. The Mouse kept the turnips whole for aesthetic purposes. The Cat they looked like mice butts. Hee hee.

For the turnip tops, The Mouse added them to The Cat’s ramen bowl of lamb rib bones and wakame.

The Cat’s Noodle Bowl

The Cat slurped.

If The Mouse could turn back time, maybe open up a small ramen shop. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

An epic eats chef’s choice from Chef H:

Split Pea and Ham Soup
Poke with Caviar, Shiso Leaves, Pesto, and Crispies

One of the best non-traditional poke The Mouse has tasted. Mmm.

Foie Gras, Salad, Raisin Toast Point

Another mmm moment. The Mouse took some of the foie gras home to savor later, The Cat scarfed hers. Hee hee.

John Dory, Steamed Rice, Almonds, Greens, Tomato Coulis

Fish was very moist and tender. Another mmm. 🙂

Lemon Sorbet

Palate refresher. 🙂

Lamb Chops

Usually, The Cat kinda avoids lamb because of the smell but she didn’t mind Chef’s dish. Hardly any lamb smell.

Peach Melba with Mango Sorbet

Perfect ending to epic meal. Thanks Chef H again!

Stay safe and well.

Some of our recent take-outs. 🙂

From Chef P., dessert.

Tapioca Pudding with Berries

The Mouse thinks Chef made this for The Cat’s birthday (a couple of weeks ago), Chef forgot. The tapioca was more boba-ish (chewy) than tapioca (soft), but still appreciated.

Tamago, Inari, and Poke

The Mouse’s lunch yesterday, from the grocery store reduced section. Just stocked, totally worth it. Hee hee.

The Mouse went to the nearby mall to pick a card, decided to pick dinner at the food court, ramen shop ran out of rice (sigh), picked side dishes.

Pork Belly and Takana

Boiled a carrot, added wakame, angel hair pasta, topped with pork belly and takana (mustard cabbage cooked with sesame oil and a little shichimi togarashi (Japanese chili powder blend).

Bowl of Noodles (Pasta)

The Cat slurped.

Stay safe and well.
