Jus’ cleaning out the camera phone. 🙂

Kalua Pork Sandwich

North Shore Grinds, not on the north shore, Kaimuki area. Not bad, better than the organic, uncured ham.

Steamed Rice with Butter and Vegemite

A riff on small-kid time dish. The Mouse’s father was not a wiz in the kitchen. When he had to “cook”, he could cook rice, fry eggs, fry SPAM, open tins of Vienna sausage. One of his go-to “dishes”, steamed rice, butter, shoyu.

Found out Vegemite is good not only on toast. Hee hee.

Inari Sushi

The Mouse’s favorite non-sushi bar sushi. Bought these on discount from the grocery store. Nom.

Roast Pork

Also picked up at the grocery store, The Mouse thought give The Cat a break, she’s been eating shoyu pork for lunch and dinner.

Soup Noodle

Buckwheat noodle, wakame seaweed, Japanese eggplant, and the roast pork. The Cat liked.

Happy Friday all!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Organic? Uncured?

Tried this.


The Cat’s idea. Trying to be more healthful?

Basic sandwich.

Ham Sandwich

Whole wheat bread from JJ2 Bakery, stone ground mustard, tomato, shiso, and the ham.

Overall, okay, jus’ okay. Mild flavor, reminded The Mouse of bologna, not so much ham. Texture on the softer side, easily chewed.

The Mouse thinks his favorite is still the ham from Honey Glazed Hams of Hawaii. Too bad they only sell whole hams and sandwiches. No smaller portions to take home. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat brought home an unmarked bag of dried vegetable, no, not that kind of dried “vegetable”. Some kinda Chinese stuff.

Dried Vegetable

According to The Cat, can be steamed, boiled, added to soups. Super salty, had to rinse twice after boiling to get it to an edible stage.

Reconstituted Boiled Vegetable

The Cat seems to like it, The Mouse is more ambivalent. Could be dried salted turnip greens, definitely not mustard cabbage (too mild tasting), dunno.

Anyone out there knows what this is?

Maybe adding this mystery dried vegetable to the next batch of chicken feet or pork foot soup. Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Orange and Green

Not much today.

Roasted Carrot

Oil and salt.

Dried Kiwi

Reminds me of the Chinese bakery/candy store (got these at the chain supermarket).

That’s it for today.

Thanks for dropping by.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Shoyu Pork

This week’s one-pot. Actually this week there were two-pots.

First, shoyu pork.

Pork Belly, Par Boiled, Washed

Pork, dark soy, ginger, Crown Royal Apple, water, salt, brown sugar, star anise.

Into the Pot

The Cat threw in green onions from our outside pots.

The Mouse threw together something to accompany the pork.


Wood-ear fungus, dried shiitake mushrooms, dark soy, sugar, salt.

Dark Matter

Good thing The Cat took white rice in her bento for contrast. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
