A Ruby Tuesday special (I think only in SPAM Land).

St. Louis Ribs, Baked Potato

Ordered an additional side order to pack into The Cat’s bento this week. The Manago Hotel plating style again. Hee hee.

Just add rice, sauteed cabbage, mushroom gravy. Tah dah!

The Mouse’s impromptu soba bowl last night.

Canned Bamboo Shoots

For some reason, The Cat thinks she’s a panda. Hee hee.

For The Cat’s bento this week.

Boneless Pork Chops

Cooks faster and easier than pork belly. Cheaper too.


The Cat helped to cut the chops up. Even easier to handle.

Browned, simmered in mushroom gravy, mushrooms, apple cider vinegar, sake, salt and pepper to taste.

Pork Chops and Mushroom Gravy

Not as tender, nor “fatty” as pork belly, but works. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Comfort Food (Sorta)

Running errands yesterday. By the time The Mouse actually ate something, breakfast went to brunch, went to almost dinch (or dunch, or lupper, or blupper) you get the idea. Ended up at the ramen shop in the mall, so many eating places and yet not much choice (The Mouse’s opinion).

Comfort food.

Fried Rice with Poached Egg and Chasiu (with Dipping Sauce)

The Mouse was near “starving”, ordered an additional poached egg. Hee hee.

Poached Egg

The fried rice was pretty good (especially with the extra poached egg), considering coming from a ramen shop, the chasiu was a little “dry” for The Mouse’s taste (the dipping sauce helped).

Chasiu Closeup

In The Mouse’s dream kitchen, The Mouse would use pork belly instead of loin, think porchetta (no dipping sauce needed). Drool! 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
