Not too much happening food-wise. A quick cucumber salad for The Cat’s dinner.

Cucumber Salad

Peeled and salted the cucumber chunks. Drained and rinsed. Sea salt, black pepper (just a tiny bit), apple cider vinegar, drops of olive oil, and one drop of Cholula chipotle sauce (for zing).

Not smashed, no garlic.

The Cat still liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse learned something new. Slicing onions from shoot to root (north to south) is less tearful than slicing east to west.

The Mouse sliced half an onion, little to none eye irratation.

Sliced Onions

The Mouse sautéed the onion with the last of the leftover bacon steak.

Bacon and Onion on Pita

A drizzle of yellow mustard. Mmm.

If The Mouse had planned better, he would have sprinkled a little bit of instant coffee while sautéing. The Mouse loves the combination of bacon and coffee.

So, this method only works with sliced onions. If dicing or garnishing sandwiches or burgers? All bets are off. 😦

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse still working through Chef H’s gift basket of vegetables and pineapple (the pineapple is yet to be tackled). Yesterday, tiny tomatoes.

Cute Yeah?

After rinsing, The Mouse sprinkled olive oil, salt, pepper, dried oregano, and garlic flakes on the tomatoes and into the toaster oven.

After they were toasted, but not saucy, The Mouse tossed the tomatoes with angel hair pasta and a tin of tuna (packed in oil).

The Mouse’s Lunch

Too bad there were no capers nor black olive in the pantry, but other than that, The Mouse was pleased with his no-recipe try. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Working through chef’s vegetable balsket. First turnip and tops, the tops were a little wilted, nothing wrong, seems turnip tops naturally wilt fast.

The Mouse soaked them in water for a while (it’s good to work at home 🙂 )


The Mouse peeled and simmered the turnips for The Cat’s bento.

The Cat’s Bento

Base of rice and sweet potato, takan and pork belly, turnips. The Mouse kept the turnips whole for aesthetic purposes. The Cat they looked like mice butts. Hee hee.

For the turnip tops, The Mouse added them to The Cat’s ramen bowl of lamb rib bones and wakame.

The Cat’s Noodle Bowl

The Cat slurped.

If The Mouse could turn back time, maybe open up a small ramen shop. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

One of The Cat’s friends sent over toasted garlic.

Picture not the greatest, The Mouse took the picture while the garlic was still in plastic. Not sure if the friend made it herself or she bought it in bulk and repackaged it. No matter. Since The Cat’s digestion and garlic do not play well together, it’s up to The Mouse to test and eat.

The Mouse tried it on his semi-regular lunch.

Pasta, sardines, wakame, toasted garlic. The garlic added taste and texture. Pretty good. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
