This Week’s Soup

Pork hock soup.

Pork Hock

A couple of cans of mushrooms, a splash of apple cider vinegar, and a “drop” of whatever’s in the liquor shelf. Hee hee.

Pig Foot Soup with Mushrooms

Pig foot meat for The Cat’s bentos, broth for The Cat’s noodle soup dinners. ūüôā

Hopefully the mushrooms will not prevent the soup from gelling.

Enjoy. Eat Well.

Kinda cleaning out the phone.

The Cat’s Soup

The turkey wings bought from Chinatown? (See previous post) A little too tough. Make soup. Hee hee.

White beans, seaweed, Napa cabbage, celery, dash of apple cider vinegar. Slurp.

As a bonus, the soup slightly gelled (collagen). The Cat was happy.

Mini Moon Cakes

Also from the Chinese bakery (see previous post again). Black sugar and lotus paste.

Black Sugar and Lotus Paste

Ate ’em at the office, with coffee, not tea. Desk food, not slow food. Sigh.

Finally, One of my favorite sandwiches.

Liverwurst and Radish Sandwich

The Mouse doesn’t get to eat liverwurst very often (cholesterol and all that), maybe with a glass of red wine to counterbalance? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s “Patient” Food

The Cat is a bit under the weather, cough, sore throat, etc.

Something warm, easy to eat.

Jook #1

White rice, barley, seaweed, carrot, fried tofu.

Jook #2

Same base as jook #1 (The Cat only ate half), added toaster ovened tomatoes and fried egg (instead of the tofu, The Cat request).

As in everything else, this cold will pass.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s¬†acquaintance? (still trying to figure that out) dropped off some soup, dumplings, and mooncake yesterday. Warmed the soup for dinner.


Pork rib?, seaweed, carrot, longan, goji berries, mushrooms, and tofu balls. Very complex, a little too rich for The Cat and The Mouse, but, gifts and horses. Hee hee.

Today’s is moon festival, eating the dumplings and mooncake tonight. Yum!

Enjoy. Eat well.

This week’s soup.

Chicken Feet


Mystery Dried Vegetable

The Mouse’s typical recipe for this sorta thing. Everything into the pot (feet, vegetable, water, vinegar, liquor) and pray. Hee hee.

Turned out okay (The Mouse’s assessment).

Chicken Feet Soup with Dried Vegetable

Gelled up fine. Taste was okay, The Cat liked, herb-y (or is it herbie, hee hee).

Weekend is almost here. Can’t come soon enough.

Enjoy. Eat well.
