At the vendor stand we frequent were bags of what to The Mouse looked liked shredded paper or cardboard. Turns out it was bamboo shoot, all cleaned and sliced.

Bamboo

Since The Cat is part panda, we bought a bag to try.

Mrs. Vendor said to parboil for 20 to 30 minutes.

Following Instructions

The Cat has fresh bamboo shoots for a couple of days. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Whew! Re-hydrating this batch of dried bamboo took a bit of time.

Bamboo Shoot

Three days of room temperature water, two nights of low and slow simmering, and countless washing. The Mouse almost thought he had to run wires through the water and hope for lighting strikes. Hee hee.

Kinda on the same theme, the shiso are sprouting again.

Shiso Plants

Yay! The Mouse is happy.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Pasta Primavera

We were doing pretty good, a good portion of the food were taken home for later consumption (spreading the calories over a longer period of time, Hee hee).

Then dessert kinda happened.

Apple and Cinnamon Crisp

The Mouse thinks it’s still ok, since there were apples in the dessert. That’s The Mouse’s story and he is sticking to it. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Special of the day at the downstairs cafe in The Cat’s office building. The Cat wanted to try try.

Chicken Confit with Roasted Root Vegetables

Came with a bowl of vegetable soup.

Vegetable Soup

The Cat brought home a portion for The Mouse to try try.

Cooked well, chicken was moist and tender, vegetables were tasty, I think for The Cat, she was not used to the seasoning, The Mouse thinks paprika.

Good job, Chef.

Enjoy. Eat well.
