The Cat’s lunch Friday.

“Italian Style” Pork Chop

At first, when The Cat sent the picture to The Mouse, The Mouse thought the dish looked like beef with mushrooms Chinese Style (maybe too much moo goo gai pan on the brain?). The Cat ate most of it and brought back a few pieces of pork for The Mouse to try.

The Mouse ate the leftovers for Saturday brunch.


The Mouse added sweet potato to the bowl. Mmm.

If the Mouse tries cooking this dish, definitely consider using pork belly instead.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse had a portion of kalua pork in the freezer, no cabbage in the house, had an onion though.

Sliced the onion as thin as I could, The Mouse can always practice his knife skills. Hee hee.

Sliced Onions

The Mouse is quite sure the effort would not pass any of the chef’s inspection, oh well, still edible. Hee hee.

Stir-fried the onions on medium low heat until they started to caramelize, added the kalua pork to warm.


Pork on the left, onions on the right. Mmm Nom! The Mouse ate straight from the pan (faster clean up), don’t tell The Cat.

For starch, The Mouse warmed a pita. Added a couple of shiso leaves for the token green. Hee hee.

Pita and Shiso

Stay safe and well.

A revisit to Simply Sichuan.

Twice Cooked Pork

The main ingredient is pork belly. The pork is simmered until soft, then stir-fried with vegetables. The Mouse thought the pork should be crispy but The Cat’s brother said otherwise. If (and a big if), The Mouse attempt this dish, the pork will be crisped. ๐Ÿ™‚

Spicy Eggplant on Fried Rice

A lunch special. Ordered mild. Quantity was ginormous, enough for three meals. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stir-Fried Lotus Root


The Cat also ordered a bowl of dan dan noodles (same as last week).

Stay safe and well.

The Cat and The Mouse have not eaten food from Chile Relleno for over a year due to the thing that cannot be named. The Mouse checked and they finally reopened. Ordered take-out.

The Cat’s Bowl

Carnitas, Mexican rice, refried beans, edamame, olives, salsa, Romaine lettuce, and probably other ingredients that The Mouse missed. Think Mexican style mixed rice.

The Mouse’s Bowl

Chile verde (pork simmered in mild spicy tomatillo verde sauce), all other ingredients as above. Mmm.

Because it was take-out, the Romaine lettuce wilted just a bit, The Mouse did not mind. More than enough food for The Cat and The Mouse to pack weekday lunch. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and well.

Not really, just trying to find a creative title. The Mouse maybe watching too many Robin Hood and King Arthur movies. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s lunch.

Pork Chop and Apple

Leftover pork chop from The Cat’s lunch and an apple. The image that came to The Mouse’s mind was those banquets in the old time Robin Hood and King Arthur movies (Errol Flynn?) whole roasted pig at the head table with an apple in its mouth. Just fantasizing. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay safe and well.
