Archive for the ‘One Pot’ Category

The Mouse learned recently. It is possible to “season” stainless steel fry pan.

Heat pan to medium, coat with cooking oil, let cool, wipe off excess. Similar to seasoning a carbon steel wok or cast iron.

The Mouse tried.

The Cat’s Bento


Key is to not wash the pan with soap, hot water only. Similar to a wok. The Mouse is happy. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Sorry, this week so far kinda boring. But still, good eats, to The Mouse anyway.

Another one pot, similar ingredients as the previous.

The Mouse’s Lunch

Black eyed peas, turnip stems (The Cat got the leafy portion, easier to chew), hot dog, spinach, dried parsley. The white blobs are boiled turnip. Kinda healthy? Kinda Cassoulet-ish? In a budget friendly way? No duck leg confit. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One Pot

The Mouse’s dinner.

“Beans and Frank”

Sorta. The Mouse’s method. Rummage through the refridge/freezer and throw things in. Black eye peas, hot dog, spinach, parsley, broccoli stems (because The Cat doesn’t eat broccoli stems), salt, lots of black pepper, and a little shichimi togarashi.

Quick too, about 20 minutes total.

The Mouse nommed. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

This week’s one pot starts with ground pork.

Ground Pork

Browned, simmered with water, salt, shoyu, sugar, vodka, added tofu cubes at the end, simmered more to incorporate.

Sesame seeds to garnish.

Think Mapo Tofu without the heat.

Ohh ohh, first day at work yesterday for The Mouse.

Squash and Chicken

Mid-week one-pot braise.


Dunno actual name, we call in Chinese squash, probably not real name.

Braised with a piece of leftover grilled chicken.

Braised Squash with Chicken

Simple. No recipe. Salt and pepper to taste. Oh yeah, a couple of drops of whiskey, just to keep all the ingredients “happy”. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
