Restricted Diet

The Mouse has to have some medical scanning done (I dunno what, so confused). Anyways, from 1:00 PM on, only protein today (no carbs, no sugar, only water, salt and pepper okay). Oh well, could be worse.

Yesterday, The Mouse bought pork and beef chunks (cuts for pork adobo and beef stew).

The Mouse seared the chunks, drained the excess fat, then poached them in a mixture of olive oil and water.

The pork turned out a little better than the beef, maybe not quite enough liquid. Still good though.

After tomorrow, The Mouse is probably gonna need a laxative (sorry, TMI). Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

P.S. The pork is mostly for The Cat, but The Mouse will eat some too. The beef is primarily for The Mouse, maybe exclusively.

Yesterday, The Mouse cooked peanut soup for The Cat. Blanched peanuts, simmered for hours, peanut butter powder, chicken stock, and mustard cabbage to finish.

Leftover carnitas from the weekend, The Mouse baked a yam, roasted zucchini, and fried an egg. Colorful yeah? Hee hee.

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse stopped by a different grocery store on the way back from getting his vaccination. Picked up a package of pork tongue (usually not found at the grocery stores he frequents).

The Mouse picked the smallest package, to experiment, went on the internet for tips (no pun intended). Hee hee.

Cut slits into the skin, boiled/simmered between 3 to 4 hours, removed from water, peeled skin (cooled but still warm), new water, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, star anise, ginger, whiskey, carrot, lots of tree ear fungus, simmered for another hour or so.

Braised pork tongue. The Cat liked. The Mouse thought about adding a small amount of miso but was afraid the taste would be too strong.

Stay safe and well.

Just cleaning out the pantry/refridge. A portion or two of dried macaroni, a can of tuna, frozen peas. No recipe throw together.

The Mouse’s Dinner

Dressed with olive oil, Worcestershire Sauce (just a dash), salt and pepper. Served chilled (or room temperature) Too bad The Mouse had no lemon on hand, otherwise a squeeze of lemon. The Mouse liked. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s dinner.

Miso Butterfish

Straight out of the container, no prep work needed. On to baking vessel (Pyrex), into toaster oven.

Miso Butterfish – Ready to Eat

Our toaster oven broiler may not be as hot to brown the top of the butterfish. The Cat enjoyed it anyway. Good thing, there’s about seven or eight pieces more. Hee hee.

Stay well and safe.
