The Mouse’s lunch. A package of instant noods, forgotten in the back of the pantry. Normally, The Mouse doesn’t use the seasoning soup pack, too much salt, doctor’s orders.

Roasted/toasted Brussels sprouts and tomato with oil, salt (just a little bit), and pepper.

Bowl of Noodles

Instead of the soup packet, The Mouse used wakame and a dash of lower sodium shoyu (just a dash) for broth.

Slurp.

Stay safe and well.

Another Costco purchase.

Carrots

The non-orange ones are so much more expensive outside of Costco. 

Cleaned, cut, olive oil, salt, 375 degrees for 30 minutes.

Roasted Carrots

The different colors did not make a difference in taste, still taste like carrot. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat wanted to try. The Mouse cooked.

Red Leaf Kale

Stripped the leafy parts from the stem, thoroughly washed.

Cooked

Sauteed/braised in oil/water, sea salt to taste. In The Mouse’s opinion, the kale tastes earthier than the green leaf variety. The Mouse prefers the green leaf to the red, if there is a choice. Although The Mouse’s opinion might change if braised longer with ham bone or pork belly, like collard greens. Hee hee.

The Mouse made The Cat’s bowl, floated the kale and a fried egg over noodle and vegetable soup.

The Cat’s Bowl

The Cat liked. 

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse experimenting. Chopped pork shoulder from the grocery store.

Chopped Pork Shoulder

Five-spice powder, salt, black pepper, shoyu, whiskey. Steamed for 45 minutes.

Not pretty, but tasty.

Steamed Pork

The Cat said although well-cooked, too much five-spice taste. The Mouse has another batch marinating, he intends to rinse the marinade, add more shoyu to counterbalance the five-spice, and try again. Experimenting.

Stay safe and well.
