The three sweet potato/yams, washed, steamed, peeled, sliced.


Salt, pepper.


The Mouse was going to add canned pineapple chunks, but found fresh pineapple with li hing powder.

Usually, The Mouse will roast Brussels sprouts in the toaster oven. But the vessel used to roast is sometimes hard to clean, the oil carbonizes? on the vessel and take a bit of elbow to scrub off.

This time, The Mouse pan roasted on the stove top.


Non-stick pan, vegetable oil, cut Brussels sprouts. Medium-low heat, twenty minutes. No-touch.


A splash of water to steam a bit, salt off the heat.

Be safe, eat good.

The Mouse threw ingredients in a pot.

Mushrooms, Potatoes, Ground Pork, Zucchini

Original plan was tomato sauce based. But, The Mouse called an audible. Hee hee.

Ground pork, ginger, lotus root, mushroom, carrot, liquid smoke, salt and pepper to taste. Kalua pork inspired.


Not photogenic but tasty, on rice or pasta, mmm!

The potatoes were steamed separate and the zucchini went into The Cat’s miso soup.

Be safe, eat good.

Be safe, eat good.
