The Mouse had another doctor’s appointment yesterday. Since he was in town, The Cat sent him on an errand. By the time The Mouse was finished, it was lunch time. Between lunch hour traffic, one way streets, and construction, The Mouse couldn’t get to a few places to take-out. Finally landed at Asian Mix, picked up a roast duck and char siu on rice plate.

Roast Duck, Char Siu, Rice, Choi Sum

Huge portion, reasonably priced. The Mouse barely ate a quarter. Half of the duck, about half of the rice, and a lot of the choi sum went into The Cat’s bento for the next day. Half of the duck and a few stalks of choi sum went to The Cat’s dinner noodle bowl.

Noodle Bowl

Along with spaghetti pasta and canned bamboo shoots.

Another quarter of the rice portion and the remaining char siu is for The Mouse’s lunch today. 🙂

Priced out, each portion comes to three dollars and change. Not bad, “cheap eats”.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse took a detour on the way home from servicing his car the other day. A little Chinese prepared food concession in a grocery store.

Mmm! Craving satiated. Hee hee.

The Cat’s lunch yesterday.

Pork Chop

Beautiful yeah?

The Cat finished the rice and vegetables. Forgot to bring home the leftover pork chop. I guess The Mouse just has to wait another day. Sigh. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse stopped by a different grocery store on the way back from getting his vaccination. Picked up a package of pork tongue (usually not found at the grocery stores he frequents).

The Mouse picked the smallest package, to experiment, went on the internet for tips (no pun intended). Hee hee.

Cut slits into the skin, boiled/simmered between 3 to 4 hours, removed from water, peeled skin (cooled but still warm), new water, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, star anise, ginger, whiskey, carrot, lots of tree ear fungus, simmered for another hour or so.

Braised pork tongue. The Cat liked. The Mouse thought about adding a small amount of miso but was afraid the taste would be too strong.

Stay safe and well.

Stay safe and well.
