Archive for the ‘Stir-Fry’ Category

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.

Quick and easy.

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

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.
