Road Trip

And buying local. One of The Cat’s favorite afternoon “pick-me-ups”, chocolate covered coffee beans. So far, the only place we’ve found them was at the source, the old Waialua Sugar Mill. So, a road trip.

Objective

The Cat also picked up roasted cocoa beans, to try try.

The Mouse, in looking for other points of interest (since the outing was a “road trip”) found Manoa Honey, makers of local honey and mead. Alas the close on Sundays and Mondays. Excuse for another road trip in relative near future. Luckily the sugar mill carried a sampling of their honeys, no mead.

Honeys

The honey and cacao nib should be interesting. The Mouse will let you know later.

Stay safe and well.

Nothing epic, maybe weird, just The Mouse eats.

Honey Covered Banana

The Mouse wanted something sweet for breakfast. Too bad he doesn’t have a kitchen torch. Hee hee.

Chocolate Covered Mac Nuts

Afternoon snack. The Mouse buys only these candies in the individual two pack. One at a time. A whole box would be disastrous. 😉

Rice with Mushroom Gravy

Dinner. Small-kid time comfort food. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Salty Sweet

The Mouse has not done a braise in a while. Too humid for soup. Nice package of pork ribs (cut for sweet sour) at the store.

Pork Ribs

After the initial parboil wash, braise for about an hour in water and apple cider vinegar. Added miso, sake, fresh ginger, and raw honey and braised for another 1/2 hour.

Miso, Sake, and Honey Braised Pork Ribs

The ribs came out tasty and tender, the sauce over rice or mashed potatoes, awesome.

Flavor kinda “teriyaki-ish”, more earthy, funky (fermented in a good way).

Stay safe and well.

Jus’ random pics, cleaning out the phone. Thankfully, Hurricane Douglas veered off at the last minute.

Honey

The Cat took a client to dinner the other night, this was his “omiyage” to The Cat. Honey is produced by bees raised by the university for study and research.

Another Bowl of Noodles

Somen noodles, beet greens, fried egg. Soup noodles. One of The Cat’s favorite foods.

Dessert

The Cat brought home from the client dinner. The Mouse ate for breakfast yesterday (waiting out the hurricane).

Stay safe and well.

No, The Mouse is not shopping for a warehouse, shopping at a warehouse, ChefZone. Potluck at the office this coming Wednesday. The Mouse kinda got “voluntold” into a crock pot mushroom dish. Went to the warehouse for inspiration.

Probably gonna do a mix of mushrooms, starting with dried sliced shiitake.

Bag

One whole pound. Humungous. But, can always use. Thought about buying the whole dried mushrooms, but sliced is probably easier to handle.

Dark Soy Sauce

Essential for making “red cooked pork”, Hong Xiao Rou.

Pork Belly

Picked up at the grocery store the other day. 🙂

Local Honey

On sale/clearance. Nothing wrong with the honey. Warehouse is phasing out their retail services and focusing more on bulk wholesale. Booo! Ugh!

Oh well, at least picked up the honey at more than 50% discount. I guess we won’t be visiting the warehouse too often in the future. Sigh.

Lunch was at nearby Lagoon Chinese Restaurant.

Crispy Gau Gee Mein

 

Crispy Gau Gee

On the side. I guess enough customers requested the gau gee on the side so it doesn’t get soggy. Good call.

Choi Sum with Oyster Sauce

Not gourmet, but solid local Chinese fare (menu has local plate lunches and burgers too). Ultra retro.

Ate half of the vegetable, took the other half home for The Cat’s noodle soup bowl.

Enjoy. Eat well.
