Are you the type that can eat anything anytime? Think fried chicken for breakfast (chicken and waffles?). Or does your brain have food categories (waffles for breakfast, not for dinner)?

As mentioned in the previous post, normal Sunday schedule was “altered”. Earlier breakfast than normal at Zippy’s.

The Cat ordered breakfast.

French Toast, Corned Beef Hash, Fried Egg

The Mouse sometimes falls into the first category.

The Mouse ordered “breakfast”.

Portuguese Bean Soup


Mushroom Burger

Which The Mouse “modified”.

Zippy’s Mushroom Burger with Mouse Mods

The lettuce and onions were eaten separately like a salad with catsup dressing (Hee hee). Added a shiso leaf from our bucket. Yum!

The benefits of eating at Zippy’s, most dishes (except for the daily specials) can be ordered almost at any hour. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Go to farmers market, eat breakfast/brunch/lunch (one meal), nap, try to make a one-pot something (soup, stew, braise, etc) for most of the week (if not for the week).

This week’s one-pot.

Pork Foot Soup

Seasoned with a little dark soy and sake.

So, broth for The Cat’s soup noodle at night, and …

Simmered Pork Foot

The solids for The Cat’s bento lunches. Easy peasy. Hee hee.

This week’s vegetable …

Bitter Melon

A quick par boil, done. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

“Thing” Soup

Okay, The Mouse will be carbon dating himself, but anyone remember The Addams Family TV show (not the movies)? The Mouse used to watch it all the time (and not in reruns or syndication (see carbon dating).

And one of the “characters” was a disembodied hand Thing?

Anywho, The Cat and The Mouse found a small batch of chicken feet at the market this weekend, and we didn’t have to cross the mountain to find it. Woohoo!

The chicken feet kinda reminded me in a weird way of Thing. Jus’ thinking. Hee hee. (Sorry Morticia, Gomez, and Wednesday)

Chicken Feet

The Cat even helped trim the toenails off the feet.

Nothing fancy, water, apple cider vinegar, feet, whiskey. Low and slow simmer.

Separated the feet and soup/broth for storage. Some of the feet went to The Cat’s bento, some feet, with soup makes The Cat’s soup noodle bowl.

Soup Noodle Bowl

Wakame, celery, soba noodles, chicken feet and broth, splash of apple whiskey and toasted sesame oil, and sprinkle of Kaua‘i salt.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat made her own soup.





Potato Tomato Soup

She read somewhere this is a healthy food combination.

Enjoy. Eat well.
