Chicken feet, washed.

The Start

Toenails cut off, washed, and parboiled.

Lots of Ginger

Slow simmered, dried dates, goji berries, carrot, vinegar, and pinch of salt.


Apple whiskey to finish.

The Mouse thought the flavoring was just a little sweet, The Cat slurped.


Be safe and well.

The Mouse was running around yesterday. Doctor is “cautiously optimistic”. Grocery store in town had chicken feet for sale, The Mouse bought a package.


First a pedicure, a quick hot bath, then lots of ginger, a few dried dates, maybe some goji berries, and if The Mouse is ambitious, some wood ear fungus.

Be safe and well.

p.s. The Mouse ran across this funny:

“May those who love us, love us

And those who don’t love us,

May God turn their hearts;

And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,

May He turn their ankles,

So we will know them by their limping.”

The Mouse thought it appropriate for a chicken feet posting. Hee hee 🙂

The Mouse was MIA yesterday, dropped The Cat at work, her car was injured and needed cosmetic surgery.

Leftover meals (repurposed).

Braised Chicken Feet Noodles with Turnip Tops


Ma Po Tofu and Biscuit

The Mouse thought about frying an egg, but probably would be too filling and send The Mouse into a food coma. Dunno why but the plating reminds me of Kung Fu Panda Shifu. Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.
