Fuzzy Pictures

Jus’ pics. Food not made by The Mouse.

Hand Roll Sushi

The Mouse thinks brown rice, tuna, and some other ingredients The Mouse couldn’t identify. Korean roasted seaweed instead of Japanese sheets. Nom.

Cabbage Soup

With Chinese long squash and hearts of palm. All vegetarian, good, but missing a bit of fat/oil. Maybe a slice of bacon or two? Hee hee.

That’s it for now, a little sparse on content, sorry, life got in the way.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Soupy Stuff

The Cat’s digestion kinda funky, long hours at work, not eating on schedule. Needs soupy stuff.

Tendon Pho

At the mall, after the farmers market on Sunday.

Throw Everything Together Bowl

The Cat got her eyes dilated yesterday, came home early from the doctor (couldn’t work too well). The Mouse made an impromptu bowl. Orzo pasta, mushroom bone soup, frozen corn, fresh asparagus. Soupy stuff. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Of all places to find chicken feet, Whole Foods.

Organic too. Bought a small portion for The Cat’s bento.

Chicken Feet

Also bought a few drumsticks.


Used the drumsticks to start a broth. Drumsticks, water, ginger, apple cider vinegar, and whiskey. Small batch. Not boiled, gently poached.

Poached Chicken Drumsticks

About twenty minutes in the hot tub. Hee hee.

The chicken feet went overnight in the broth. Same seasoning.

Chicken Feet

The Cat’s bento: canned sliced potato, chicken fee, mushroom gravy.

Assembling The Bento

Topped with parboiled mustard greens.

The Cat’s Bento

Soup/broth separately packed, part of The Cat’s dinner.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sunday Pho

This past Sunday, instead of the semi-regular Ruby Tuesday, soup noodles.


The Cat’s stomach needed something warm and soupy, too many late nights at the office, weird eating.

The Cat’s Oxtail Soup


The Mouse’s Won Ton Egg Noodle Soup

Instead of the standard rice noodles.


Dunno, maybe the Thai basil helped to settle The Cat’s stomach.

The Cat liked. Only drawback, no dessert (read mudpie). Sigh.

That’s okay, with The Cat’s stomach not being at optimal functioning status anyway …

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mushroom Soup

The base/broth.

Pork Foot

Par boil, wash, fresh water, ginger, vinegar, Chinese dates, simmer for hours.

Remove foot (for The Cat’s bento), add canned mushrooms to desired quantity, simmer for addtional 45 minutes.

Mushroom Soup

The Mouse was wondering if the soup would gel, the mushroom might dilute the soup too much. While not fully gell, soup did slight thicken and solidify.

Enjoy. Eat well.
