Archive for the ‘Stir-Fry’ Category

Time Saver

The Mouse wanted vegetables, specifically a stir-fry. For The Mouse to get all the variety of vegetables and prep/cut-up would be kinda time consuming. Luckily, a nearby diner has a vegetable stir-fry dish with rice.

Vegetable Stir-Fry

The seasoning is ginger, garlic, shoyu. Mmm. There is an option to add protein but The Mouse likes it plain. Portion is enough for at least two servings for The Mouse. Dish is kinda prohibitive for The Cat, some of the vegetable variety are onions and bell peppers (does not play well with The Cat’s digestion). But The Mouse did dig out the jicama to add to her bento.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s lunch the other day.

Beef Stir-Fry

From an Irish pub/restaurant. Go figure.

The Cat said the dish was well cooked.

The Mouse is not surprised. Many moons ago, when The Mouse was small-kid time, there used to be two shops, owned by the same Chinese man, one sold fish and chips, and one sold pastrami and corned beef sandwiches.

The Mouse dunno how “authentic” the food was, tasted great. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

Campus welcomed a new president yesterday. Previous one retired a couple of months ago. Of course, there has to be food.

Since it was in the morning, the food selection was more continental breakfast.

Fruits and Cookie

Pastries and coffee were also offered. The Mouse stayed relatively good and ate more fruits than sweets. 🙂

The Mouse must be getting old, the cookie ended up being too sweet. Able to only eat half.

And, staying on the “healthy train”…

Celery and Bitter Melon

Dinner was a vegetable sauté.

No recipe, just heat and toss.

Celery, Bitter Melon, Tomato Sauté.

If you squint really hard, the tomato almost looks like lup cheong (Chinese sausage). Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No slow cooking this week, no pig foot, no chicken feet. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I know, I know, boring, but quick ‘n’ easy.

Bought a tray of five pieces chicken thighs, boneless and skinless. Each night, half a thigh for The Cat, half a thigh for The Mouse.

Celery and Chicken Stir-Fry

With wasabi flavored sesame seeds. 🙂

Stir-Fried Okra and Chicken

Frozen okra, I think I didn’t cook it long enough, a little underdone.

Boiled Okra with Chicken

Definitely cooked through this time. Sprinkled with olive oil and Himalayan salt. Nom.

Miso Soup with Vegetables and Chicken

Quick and easy.

And of course through this all, The Cat has her bowl of noodles with whatevers in the refrig.

Example of Noodle Bowl for The Cat

Seaweed, pak choi, corn, chicken, etc.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Ground Pork

No major soup this week. No chicken feet, pork hock, nor oink tail (aren’t you lucky). This week we thought we’d change it up with ground pork.

The Cat seasoned a package of ground pork.

After cooked, the pork can be used as a base for stir-frys, steamed dishes, or quick soups.

Last night, chopped up turnip greens.
