The Cat had another business lunch, but forgot her phone at the office.

So instead of beautiful plated food, only got pics of what The Mouse prepared for dinner.

Sorghum Grain

.

Lentils

.

Tomatoes with Preserved Olive Leaves

The Mouse should’ve slightly broiled/toasted the tomatoes, think would’ve been even better. Next time.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Okay, so the only common element with this salad and an actual Caesar salad was the Romaine lettuce, but The Mouse had fun constructing it. Hee hee.

Romaine Lettuce

Wanted anchovies but doctor would probably go on a rant about way too much sodium.

Sardines

At least they were lightly smoked and in oil.

Add Sardines

.

Add Lentil

.

Top with Faux Crab Salad

Not authentic, but The Mouse liked. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse trying to add variety to The Cat’s bento.

Belly Pork

Poached the pork in water, whiskey, and apple cider vinegar.

Brussels Sprouts

.

Package of Yellow Rice and Pasta

Prepared the rice according to package instructions.

Yellow Rice

It’s okay to eat yellow rice, jus’ don’t eat yellow snow. Hee hee.

 

The Mouse did a quick sauté using the pork and a can of shredded bamboo shoot.

Pork with Shredded Bamboo Shoot

Didn’t get a sear on the pork. The Mouse didn’t want to haul out the big fry pan, used the non-stick mini pan instead, can’t crank the heat up on those pans. Still taste okay, just no color.

Toaster oven roasted the Brussels sprouts per The Barefoot Contessa’s instructions.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Does not include candied pecans like Herringbone, but The Mouse thinks tasty on its own. 🙂

And voila! packed everything into The Cat’s bento for Monday.

Eggplant?

Or golf balls? Hee hee.

Got these from the farmers market.

Eggplant

Golf ball sized.

Vendor said best stewed or braised. Okay.

Cleaned

Leftover roast pork, the brown gravy variety, not the Chinese crispy skin variety.

Stir-fried the eggplant, added a little water, a little whiskey, let everything braise for 15-20 minutes.

Added the roast pork and package of brown mushroom gravy, braise for another 5 minutes.

The eggplant kinda lost its structure, dish became more thick gravy. The Cat liked.

The Cat’s “Teishoku”

Rice (in a cat themed bowl), seaweed soup (with soybeans), eggplant and roast pork in mushroom gravy.

Enjoy. Eat well.
