The Mouse eats.


Mixed Rice

Leftover pasteles stew with rice. The Mouse added frozen vegetables for “balance”. Hee hee.

Lunch was not pork, in fact no meat. I know. Weird yeah?


Orange, prunes, grapes.

Miso Soup

Dinner, more pork.

Lechon Kawali

The Mouse also picked up from the grocery store “Japanese Potato Salad”. Large chunks of potato mixed with Japanese pickles (namasu) and mayo. Clearance item.

Japanese Potato Salad

The Mouse likes the clearance section at the grocery store, chance to try something different with less buyer’s remorse. Or a good deal on favorites. Must have Forrest Gump chocolate box mindset. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The last Costco run, The Cat bought a package of prunes. The package sat in the pantry. The Mouse has been nibbling, but not a favorite.

The Mouse looked for a recipe that would incorporate pork and prunes. Found one.

The Mouse took a piece of pork rib, five or six prunes, enough water to braise. Added ginger and coconut vinegar (whatever was in the pantry). One wood-ear fungus, rehydrated, boiled, sliced into strips.

Before serving, added head cabbage. A German chef once told The Mouse that pork, cabbage and vinegar works well.

Vinegar Braised Pork and Prunes with Cabbage

Pic taken through steam. The Cat liked. Chinese/German-inspired (vinegar braised pig feet: thanks Yummy Lummy for the reminder: https://yummylummy.com/2022/05/05/pig-trotters-vinegar-and-ginger/ and German pork and red cabbage).

Be safe and well.

Pork Eats

The Mouse didn’t plan the day, just turned out that way. Hee hee.


Pork Chop

Leftover pork chop from The Cat’s lunch, rice, frozen vegetables and chili sauce (local made).

After that, The Mouse was too full for regular lunch, just nibbled on graham crackers and apple slices.

Small bento from the grocery store. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse ate “small-ish”. Dinner was simple.

Kalua Pork

Portion shared with The Cat. The Mouse had about four bites

Rice with Furikake

About four bite portion, matched with the Kalua pork.

Then, The Mouse decided that health food pastries were confusing. “Healthy junk food?”

The Mouse bought one donut from the grocery store.


Frosting and cocoa powder. Mmm.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s:

Roast Pork on Rice

The Mouse’s:

McChicken Sandwich

No mayo. The Mouse used tarter sauce (less damaging than mayo, more zing) and added pickles at home. 🙂

The Mouse can’t wait until Chik-Fil-a opens in SPAM Land. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
