The last Costco run, The Cat bought a package of prunes. The package sat in the pantry. The Mouse has been nibbling, but not a favorite.

The Mouse looked for a recipe that would incorporate pork and prunes. Found one.

The Mouse took a piece of pork rib, five or six prunes, enough water to braise. Added ginger and coconut vinegar (whatever was in the pantry). One wood-ear fungus, rehydrated, boiled, sliced into strips.

Before serving, added head cabbage. A German chef once told The Mouse that pork, cabbage and vinegar works well.

Vinegar Braised Pork and Prunes with Cabbage

Pic taken through steam. The Cat liked. Chinese/German-inspired (vinegar braised pig feet: thanks Yummy Lummy for the reminder: https://yummylummy.com/2022/05/05/pig-trotters-vinegar-and-ginger/ and German pork and red cabbage).

Be safe and well.

No, nothing official, just what The Mouse was eating yesterday Friday. And yes he forgot to press the “publish” button, again. Sigh.

Breakfast, from 7-Eleven.

Kalua Pork and Cabbage over Rice

Kinda appropriate since The Mouse worked on the warehouse’s accounts receivable for 7-Eleven the whole day. Hee hee.

Lunch was home-made leftovers.

Braised Style Kalua Pork with Zucchini

Wasn’t bad, but the dish could have been helped with shredded sun-dried tomatoes added to the mix. None in the pantry and the warehouse doesn’t carry the product. No matter.

Stay safe and well.

Kalua Pork and Lau Lau Combo Plate

The Mouse reserved most of the Kalua pork, way too much for The Mouse to eat in one sitting.


Chopped up, oil to coat pan, cabbage (dry braised), Kalua pork and Hanapepe salt at the end to warm through.

Braised Cabbage with Kalua Pork Accent

“Irish” Dinner

The Cat worked late last night. The Mouse picked up a plate from the grocery store.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Lots of food. One scoop of rice went to The Cat’s soft rice for the night, one scoop for her future bento (along with a slice of corned beef, the potato, and a carrot. The Mouse ate another slice of corned beef for dinner, and some of the cabbage and corn, and took one slice for his bento. The Mouse only wished there was more potato. Oh well, next time plan ahead and boil his own extra.

Enjoy. Eat well.
