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.
