Bone Soup

Pig feet and chicken feet out of stock at the grocery store. Really nice package of pork bones though.

Pork Bones

A splash of apple cider vinegar and star anise to simmer, a splash of sake at the end.

Bone Soup with Vegetables

A good amount of bones with marrow for The Cat to dig into. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Dinner with Chef P and his family at Vino Italian Tapas and Wine Bar.

Amuse Bouche

Local organic egg frittata. The Mouse could’ve had a full portion for dinner. Nom!

Bone Marrow

OVEN ROASTED BONE MARROW braised short rib ragu, Roma tomatoes & lemon herb vinaigrette. Another nom!


RISOTTO ALLA MILANESE Hudson Valley foie gras, carnaroli rice, saffron & pecorino romano. The Cat very rich, a little too rich.

Osso Bucco

More marrow. Daily special. The Mouse was happy. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse has been obsessed with this dish for a couple weeks. But the other menu items don’t seem The Cat friendly.

The stars kinda aligned this weekend. The Mouse made a slight detour for breakfast/lunch.


Decor was nice.

British Telephone Box

Okay, it’s not a blue police call box, but close enough. Hee hee.

No menu needed.

Eggs and Bone Marrow

Came with charred bread. Awesome, a little pricey, but an occasional indulgence. The Mouse has declared this week to be an indulgent week. Hee hee.

To “balance out” the bone marrow, The Mouse also ordered vegetable.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

The Mouse’s opinion, even better than Herringbone’s Brussels sprouts, not vinegary.

To cap off the breakfast/lunch, The Mouse had his favorite at the mall.

Acai Bowl

From the Nordstrom kiosk.

The Mouse had a good eating day! 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Siren’s Song

Sometimes food (or ingredients) call to me. The other day, there was a package of marrow bones in the market calling to me like a Siren’s song. Wasn’t looking for them, didn’t even have them on my mind. But once food speaks to me, all bets are off.

Bought ’em and roasted ’em.

Roasted Marrow Bones

Nothing more needed than a little sea salt.

Roasted Marrow Bones and Whole Wheat Baguette

Of course I had a strong mug of “bitter needle tea” (ku ding cha) to keep everything in balance. Socks came off.

BTW, my internet surfing turned up a utensil call bone marrow spoons. They seemed to have been popular a long time ago. There are versions currently for sale but they’re kind of pricey. I noticed the shape is similar to the scoop end of our crab thingies (forks?)

Crab Thingies

Used them instead. Works just fine. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat Well.

Found some pretty decent buys at the grocery store this week. At first, I was looking for some belly pork, but the price was a little steep. Saw chicken gizzards at a good price. Gizzards it is then.

Chicken Gizzards

Simmered them for a couple of hours and sliced them into strips.

Turnip, Potato, Celery, and Gizzard Stir-Fry

For the first dish, I parboiled a turnip and a potato, cut them into chunky strips, stir-fried with some of the gizzards and chopped celery. The seasoning was light and dark soy sauce, sugar, and Shao Xingwine. The Cat approved.

Cabbage and Gizzards, Curry Flavor

The second dish was stir-fried cabbage and gizzards, seasoned with curry powder, salt, and sugar.

At the same grocery store, I found these.

Marrow Bones

I used to go somewhere else for marrow bones but these are so much better. Uniformly cut and each one has marrow. The grocery store is also closer to our house. I found a new source. Hopefully the grocery store stays consistent.

Roasted Bone Marrow

The Cat approved.

Lastly, found a deal on radishes. I sautéed them in olive oil and butter. Yum.

Sautéed Radishes

I even used the radish tops. Added them to the broth I simmered the gizzards in. Talk about no waste. 😉

Chicken Gizzard Broth with Radish Tops

The Cat gave this one four paws.
