Hee hee.

The Mouse, kinda playing with his food. Made a broth/soup/stew from wood-ear fungus, canned shiitake mushrooms, wakame, dried shrimp, frozen soybeans, and sea salt. Poured the concoction over the leftover shrimp tempura.

The Mouse’s “Kraken Bowl”

Eat while watching 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, League of Extrodinary Gentlemen, Clash of Titans (the Sam Worthington version), or Aquaman. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The last Costco run, The Cat bought a package of prunes. The package sat in the pantry. The Mouse has been nibbling, but not a favorite.

The Mouse looked for a recipe that would incorporate pork and prunes. Found one.

The Mouse took a piece of pork rib, five or six prunes, enough water to braise. Added ginger and coconut vinegar (whatever was in the pantry). One wood-ear fungus, rehydrated, boiled, sliced into strips.

Before serving, added head cabbage. A German chef once told The Mouse that pork, cabbage and vinegar works well.

Vinegar Braised Pork and Prunes with Cabbage

Pic taken through steam. The Cat liked. Chinese/German-inspired (vinegar braised pig feet: thanks Yummy Lummy for the reminder: https://yummylummy.com/2022/05/05/pig-trotters-vinegar-and-ginger/ and German pork and red cabbage).

Be safe and well.

Seriously. The Brussels sprouts and the beet greens needed to be tended to.

Roasted the Brussels sprouts.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Most of the sprouts goes to The Cat’s bento this week, froze a few for her dinner, and The Mouse ate approximately half a portion (the residual).

The Mouse made a quick soup with wakame, beet greens, and residual frozen cauliflower.

Soup

For lunch.

No waste. 🙂
