One plate, three meals (two for now).

Char Siu, Chicken Lunch Plate

Local chop suey, only available during lunch hours and weekdays only. Way too much food for The Mouse (getting old). Lots of rice, chicken, and greens leftover.

The Mouse made rice soup with a portion of the leftovers for The Cat’s dinner.

Chicken Rice Soup

Better than canned. Hee hee. Just add wakame. Comfort food.

Be safe and well.

Odds and ends.

The Cat saw a jar of preserved yuzu (sweetened) at Costco. Way too big. The Mouse bought a much smaller jar at the grocery store.

Preserved Yuzu

Think marmalade without the pectin, liquidy. Add a small amount to hot water, drink.

The Cat hasn’t tried yet. Caught a bug (maybe a cold). Needed tomato soup.

Tomato Soup with Cauliflower

A riff on an Andy Warhol. 🙂

Finally, The Mouse “assembled” a bologna sandwich. A classic dad “no recipe”. Old school.

Bologna Sandwich

White bread, bologna slices (had to have the plastic red “skin”), and yellow mustard, Pop was not a Grey Poupon kinda guy. Nothing fancy, gets the job done. 🙂

Be safe and well.

The Cat was knocked out Sunday, probably too much sun on Saturday.

Plans for looking for cornbread went awry.

Late afternoon meal.

Oxtail Soup

The Cat’s go-to bowl of comfort food.

The Mouse had another comfort food choice.

Chicken Curry with Rice

Leftovers to spare. 🙂

Cornbread maybe next week,

Be safe and well.

Chicken feet, washed.

The Start

Toenails cut off, washed, and parboiled.

Lots of Ginger

Slow simmered, dried dates, goji berries, carrot, vinegar, and pinch of salt.


Apple whiskey to finish.

The Mouse thought the flavoring was just a little sweet, The Cat slurped.


Be safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The soup perfectly gelled overnight. \ooo/

The Mouse was running around yesterday. Doctor is “cautiously optimistic”. Grocery store in town had chicken feet for sale, The Mouse bought a package.


First a pedicure, a quick hot bath, then lots of ginger, a few dried dates, maybe some goji berries, and if The Mouse is ambitious, some wood ear fungus.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The Mouse ran across this funny:

“May those who love us, love us

And those who don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,

May He turn their ankles,

So we will know them by their limping.”

The Mouse thought it appropriate for a chicken feet posting. Hee hee 🙂
