The Mouse has to have some medical scanning done (I dunno what, so confused). Anyways, from 1:00 PM on, only protein today (no carbs, no sugar, only water, salt and pepper okay). Oh well, could be worse.

Yesterday, The Mouse bought pork and beef chunks (cuts for pork adobo and beef stew).

The Mouse seared the chunks, drained the excess fat, then poached them in a mixture of olive oil and water.

The pork turned out a little better than the beef, maybe not quite enough liquid. Still good though.

After tomorrow, The Mouse is probably gonna need a laxative (sorry, TMI). Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

P.S. The pork is mostly for The Cat, but The Mouse will eat some too. The beef is primarily for The Mouse, maybe exclusively.

Just kidding. Happy Halloween, if you celebrate. The Mouse has been using coconut sugar in his oatmeal, picked up from the nearby Ross discount store.


According to the package, the sugar is low glycemic and low carb. It being Halloween, The Mouse thought to try it on something more fitting.

Trick or Treat

The Mouse cored and cubed the apple, tossed with coconut sugar and cinnamon.

The Mouse’s Breakfast

You think the evil queen would approve? Hee hee. Or is it cackle cackle? The Mouse didn’t notice before (in the oatmeal), but the coconut sugar has a slight caramel taste. The sugar was okay on the apple, better in the oatmeal.

The Cat’s office building lobby decorated for the weekend.


And the decorations at the mall.

Game of Bones?

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse home eats. Sandwiches.

Luncheon Meat and Cucumber

Wheat bread and mustard. Picture was pre-toasted. Note it was lunch meat, not SPAM. Keeping the SPAM for major events (think zombie apocalypse).

Pork Belly and Zucchini

Leftover simmered pork belly.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat was crunching tax returns at work, The Mouse was left to his own devices. In other words, “weird” eats. Hee hee.

Curry Pasta

“Clearing” the pantry. Not enough of one pasta, just add another. Leftover curry gravy and frozen vegetables. Extra turmeric for the joints.

Turkey Pot Pie

Cheap eats. Package instructions includes statement on not cooking in toaster oven, microwave or conventional oven only. The Mouse being the rebel and economical used the toaster oven anyway, just added a little more time. Baked okay, The Mouse would do it again.


Because The Cat was not around to smell. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The local diner chain month special, katsu SPAM curry rice. The Mouse is intriqued. The line to order is out the door. Nope. Second choice, a ramen shop, fried eggplant curry rice. Closed on Wednesdays. Deep sigh.

Plan C, one pot bowl at home.


Pasta shells, frozen peas and carrots, tin of sardines, wakame, salt and pepper, and dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Try again today, maybe.

Stay safe and well.
