The Mouse learned this no-recipe from his father. Father thought it was gourmet. Hee hee.

Onion

Rough Chopped

Tin of Sardines

Must be packed in oil, not water.

After the onion is softened over medium heat and a little bit of oil. Add the whole can of sardines, including the packing oil, mash the sardines. Season to taste. The Mouse added black pepper and paprika.

Piled over steamed rice.

Mouse Lunch

Best would have been a little capers for garnish. None in the refridge, sweet relish as an acceptable substitute. Mmm! 🙂

Be safe and well.

While The Cat slept, The Mouse got hungry, made a bowl of noms for himself. No recipe, hope for the best cooking.

Steamed rice, wakame, dried pork sausage, frozen lima beans, topped with Korean “furikake”. 🙂

The Mouse’s Bowl

Mmm!

Be safe and well.

Chicken feet, washed.

The Start

Toenails cut off, washed, and parboiled.

Lots of Ginger

Slow simmered, dried dates, goji berries, carrot, vinegar, and pinch of salt.

Soup!

Apple whiskey to finish.

The Mouse thought the flavoring was just a little sweet, The Cat slurped.

🙂

Be safe and well.

p.s. The soup perfectly gelled overnight. \ooo/

The Mouse was running around yesterday. Doctor is “cautiously optimistic”. Grocery store in town had chicken feet for sale, The Mouse bought a package.

Package

First a pedicure, a quick hot bath, then lots of ginger, a few dried dates, maybe some goji berries, and if The Mouse is ambitious, some wood ear fungus.

Be safe and well.

p.s. The Mouse ran across this funny:

“May those who love us, love us

And those who don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,

May He turn their ankles,

So we will know them by their limping.”

The Mouse thought it appropriate for a chicken feet posting. Hee hee 🙂

Not really The Beatles inspired. More digging through the kitchen.

Ginger, raw peanuts, canned cannellini beans, oatmeal, peanut powder, an egg, and salt to taste.

Throw everything together and pray for the best. 🙂

The Cat’s Soup/Stew

A sprinkle of paprika and chives for color. The Cat seemed to like.

The Mouse found a “remnant plate” at the supermarket.

Pastele “Mini Bento”

Scoop of rice, scoop of mashed potato with gravy, one pastele, $3.99. Good deal as the grocery deli was selling one pastele as a side for $3.99. Rare treat for The Mouse. 🙂

Be safe and well.
