Saturday morning, lotsa running around.

Doctor appointment,

Walmart (The Cat’s instant noodles), tax season almost over.

Some Chinatown produce shopping,

Some bank stuff (long story.

Random pics.

Panda Buns

Filled with black sesame paste, picked them up at a stall while shopping for produce.

Fish Sandwich and Fries

Fast food.

Not one of The Mouse’s proudest moments, but got hungry running errands.

Okra Pickles

Last of the jar, from Picnics from the Vine, The Mouse’s favorite artisanal preserve maker. Pickles helped to cut the heaviness of the sandwich and fries.

Beef Broccoli

Dinner, from the neighborhood chop suey. The Mouse can only eat while The Cat is not around. Number 1, has beef, number 2, she doesn’t think beef broccoli is “Chinese” food. Oh well, The Mouse liked. ๐Ÿ™‚

Taro Duck

Mostly for The Cat’s bento, plus, The Mouse was in the mood. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse was thinking about this combo for dinner last night, spicy eggplant and chicken katsu. The Mouse’s go-to take out neighborhood joint just so happened had that combo last night. The Mouse saved a dollar-fifty, score!

Special Combo #2

All rice, no mac salad. Two scoops of the rice, half of the spicy eggplant, and about a third of the chicken katsu saved for The Cat’s bento next week. Nom!

The perfect “pickle” to cut the richness of the meal.

Fresh Cucumber Kimchi

Not too fermented, fresh. Yum!

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse stopped in after work, some bento ingredients for The Cat’s bento next week, some prepped food for The Mouse. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mixed Rice

For The Cat’s bento.

Sweet Potato Tempura

Also for The Cat’s bento.

Pork Cheeks

Again, for The Cat’s bento. The Mouse not quite sure what no-recipe this will be but some kinda braise.

Bulgogi Bowl

The Mouse’s dinner.

The label said mushroom bulgogi. The Mouse thought it was all mushroom done in the bulgogi style but although the bowl had mushrooms, there was quite a bit of beef too. Got The Mouse thinking, possible to make an all mushroom bulgogi dish? Maybe not vegetarian, but no meat? Hmm. The Mouse must think about that one. Intriguing.


Also for The Mouse’s dinner. The Mouse went at “pake” time (The Mouse’s own label). Prepped foods discounted a dollar off each. Small score, hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

His “weapon of choice” … natto!

SPAM Omelet with Natto

Breakfast (or in this case, dinner) of champions. The Mouse adds natto, not on the menu (just clarifying)

Neighborhood take-out joint makes breakfast all day. Whoop!

Spicy Eggplant and Grilled Chicken with Natto

Valentine’s Day dinner for The Mouse (The Cat is in tax season mode), Valentine’s dinner is “rescheduled”. The Mouse took out a portion of the eggplant and chicken to share with The Cat. Added natto.

So, a little TMI, The Mouse had a little tummy trouble last weekend. Natto helped him finally get back to “normal”. Hee hee.

Hopefully this weekend, The Mouse goes shopping in Chinatown. Yeah!

Enjoy. Eat well.
