The Mouse used the bones from the pork chop and made a “waste not” bowl of noodles for The Cat.

Took the bones, simmered for a couple of hours, added turnip and udon noodles. Simple.

“Tonkatsu” Udon

The Cat slurped.

Another super simple bowl, this time for The Mouse. Orzo pasta, sardines, wakame, black pepper to taste.

The Mouse’s Lunch

The Mouse doesn’t think the Campbell’s soup company would give him a job. Doesn’t matter, The Mouse liked. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The go-to dishes for The Mouse at Panda Express are their teri chicken and super greens. The Mouse mixed is up a little bit and got a side of their mushroom chicken (moo goo gai pan).

Chicken and Mushrooms

Pretty good. Because of the sauce (gravy), chicken stayed moist and tender. The mushrooms and zucchini were good too.

The Mouse made a riff on buttered noodles. Tube pasta with olive oil (no butter nor cheese).

Tube Pasta

Lightly salted, heavy on the ground pepper and dried parsley. Not bad, but oh the days when The Mouse did not have digestive issues with dairy.

Stay safe and well.

Or, making space in the refridge. First, The Mouse used the other half of the onion for his lunch.

Bowl of Noodles

Lightly caramelized red onions, water, wakame, soba noodles, sea salt. No recipe, throw in and pray. Hee hee. Turned out pretty good. Vegetarian, comfort food. The Mouse was hoping the colors would be more vibrant (springy), but the onion color dulled. Still tasty though.

Cold Cut Sandwich

Nothing special except for the shiso leaves. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and well.

Old school. One of my father’s favorites, except he didn’t have the patience to cook the onions down, his was crispy.

The Mouse started with a red onion, ’cause it looked pretty.

Red Onion

Thinly sliced, low and slow in the pan with olive oil, turn heat to medium and add tin of sardines (with oil), smash and heat to incorporate. Salt and pepper to taste.

Sardines and Onions

Over steamed rice. Mmm. The Mouse supposes it would be good over pasta too, maybe even ramen. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and well.

Freezer and pantry. Elbow macaroni, frozen spinach, frozen tilapia. The Mouse tried to cook in one pot, ended up using two.

Steamed tilapia over elbow macaroni and broccoli. Salt and pepper to taste.

The Mouse thought about hot oil, but it would have been too much clean-up. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
