The Cat worked late tonight. Plus trying to clear the refrig.

The Cat's Bowl

The Cat’s Bowl

Since The Cat likes “squishy” food, ancient grain “jook”, leftover pork chop, white stem cabbage, dried seaweed.

The Mouse not that enthused with “squishy” food.

The Cat’s regular duck noodle place has been hit or miss lately. Thought we’d change it up for this past Sunday. Our old stomping grounds, Kin Wah Chop Suey.

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

Pot Roast Duck Soup Noodle

As far as we know, it’s the only place that has pot roast duck (vs. roast duck) soup noodle on the menu (they also have roast duck soup noodle on the menu).

The difference is the duck is softer, the fat isn’t rendered out, the taste is more stew than char. The Cat had fun and leftovers for dinner.

The Mouse went with a chop suey staple.

Special Plate "B"

Special Plate “B”

Kau Yuk, Spareribs, Beef Broccoli, Fried Shrimp, Crisp Gau Gee & Rice. Sooo Chinese. Not! Hee hee.

Anyways, the sweet sour spareribs inspired The Mouse to try his own version.

Country Style Pork Spare Ribs

A little too lean, but, was cheap.

Vinegar, salt, sugar, sake, braise for a couple of hours.

Sweet Sour Spare Ribs - The Mouse Version

A little too meaty, flavor didn’t penetrate enough. We’ll see how the leftovers are (after sitting in the braising liquid)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Oh and BTW, it’s The Mouse’s first day of a new job. No more juggling and commuting two, sometimes three part-time jobs. No more urban nomad. ๐Ÿ™‚

New adventure, new eating location. Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Uhm, okay, try try (for lunch).

Furikake Fries and Kake Udon

Furikake Fries and Kake Udon

Good thing the fries were on the side (and not on top like the picture). I think the ย fries would have gotten too soggy. This way, I dipped the fries as I ate. Not bad concept, kinda reminded me of small-kid time dipping fries in milkshakes. Hee hee.

For dinner, no carbs. Threw together a one-pot thingy.

The Mouse's Mishmash Bowl

The Mouse’s Mishmash Bowl

Frozen okra, frozen spinach, frozen edamame, leftover porkchop, leftover sausage, leftover turnip, smoked pork. Mmmm! Veggies and meat. ๐Ÿ™‚

Overall, a balanced day. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
