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.

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