The Cat in bed sleeping off a cold. The Mouse lazying around. Some internet Christmas browsing.

Fruit Salad

Apple, Chinese grapefruit, Mandarin orange, pineapple. Breakfast.

Beef Curry Stew over Rice

Japanese take-out down the street. Japanese style curry, a little on the sweet side (which The Mouse doesn’t mind). Really, it’s all about the gravy and rice! Good gravy. Hee hee.

Ginger Onion Musubi

Not typical musubi shaped, flat, kinda like a sandwich. This one had the cold ginger chicken sauce, not the chicken, just the sauce in-between.

Chomp View

Have to love the ginger chicken sauce, which The Mouse does. Made well, could’ve used a bit more salt, or a couple pieces of fried SPAM. Hee hee.

Rest of the time spent napping, and in The Mouse’s case dealing with his own leaky plumbing. Body still not back to normal. Taking its time I guess.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse was nearby and dinner from the gas station seemed like a good idea at the time, no regrets.

Chicken Salad Sandwich

The local 7-Eleven stocks a pretty good BLT but they were sold out last night, good substitute.

Root Beer

One of The Mouse’s faves. Now in diet.

Crunchy Stuff

No, The Mouse did not consume in one sitting. But good that the gas station sells small packs. Controlled portions. Hee hee.

To balance out The Mouse made a fruit salad.

Mandarin Orange, Starfruit, Canned Pineapple

🙂

For The Cat, The Mouse made a quick stew/braise

The Cat’s Stew

Leftover Chinese pot roast pork, eggplant, carrot. Nom.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Comfort Food

The Mouse (and The Cat) is (are) back. Short trip to Hilo, semi-business for The Cat, The Mouse went along kinda as driver. Pics and stories coming. In the meantime, last night dinner. Schedule still out of whack, jet lag and all. Hee hee.

Max’s of Manila, near The Mouse’s workplace.

Dishes that meet The Cat’s food preferences.

Pinakbet

Vegetables? Check. Soupy? Check.

A little too much shrimp paste for The Mouse’s taste, good with rice though.

Papaya Chicken Soup

Again, soupy? Check. Vegetables? Check.

Well cooked. Chicken was not “dried out” from overcooking, papaya was soft, but not falling apart.

Really though, the main reason for coming here was for the ube ice cream (The Cat was jonesing for).

Ube Ice Cream

The Cat would have gone for a bowl of Halo Halo, but watching her weight and too much food.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The oxtail. Part II.

After the parboil (about 30 minutes), drained, cooled, and refrigerated.

Trimmed the outside fat (think fat cap).

Into the pot. Oxtail, tree ear fungus, heavy soy sauce, salt, pepper, sugar, vodka, orange extract, ginger. Slow simmer for about an hour, add peanuts, more slow simmer for another 90 minutes, add turnip and bamboo shoot, more simmer for another hour or so.

Braised Oxtail Stew – Asian Flavor

The Mouse style.

Right now, the stew is resting in the refridge for at least overnight to let the flavors and liquid soak and distribute.

Enjoy. Eat well.
