The Cat can eat at home now (a break from crazy tax season). The Mouse cleaned out the pantry for The Cat’s soupy bowl.

The Cat’s Soupy Bowl

Pork broth, with pork belly, bamboo shoot, mushroom, white stem cabbage, dried ramen noodle, sea salt, egg drop at the last minute. Slurp!

The Cat picked up a hot dog from Costco for The Mouse. Warmed up the last of Chef H’s chili.

The Mouse’s Nom

Chili dog with fried pork skin (better than chips, maybe even better than fries). Big nom. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Newly purchased cans in the pantry.

First the winter bamboo shoots.

Winter Bamboo Shoots

Not much different from other canned bamboo shoots as far as The Mouse could tell, maybe just a little denser than others (cold weather?)

Next, the Szechuan preserved vegetable.

Preserved Vegetable

Mustard cabbage hearts in spicy paste (Chinese style kimchi?).

Rinsed off the paste (at least that’s how aunty taught The Mouse), otherwise too spicy.

Preserved Cabbage

Thinly cut the bamboo and mustard cabbage.

Bamboo and Mustard Cabbage

Water, soba noodle, bamboo, preserved vegetable, frozen mixed vegetable, Kaua‘i sea salt, egg, toasted sesame oil (at the end). The Mouse’s recipe, throw everything in the pot and hope for the best.

The Cat’s Noodle Soup

The Cat slurped.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Soup Weather

Yesterday. weather was very bleh. Dark, cloudy, rainy. Downpour at night. Soup weather.

The Cat’s lunch.

Soup and Sandwich

Museum cafe. Client meeting.

The Mouse’s dinner.

Portuguese Bean Soup

Zippy’s. Dunno if The Mouse went too late, soup seemed a little too “starchy”, like chef spilled too much cornstarch into it. Still edible, just not as good as “normal”.

Maybe heading to Chinatown today, depends on parking. We will see.

Enjoy. Eat well.

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.
