The Cat went on a business trip, stuff that ended up coming back in her suitcase.

Vinegar and Anchovies

The Cat still has jet lag, time difference was eleven hours ahead.

The Mouse made rice porridge.

Jet Lag Bowl

Rice, Napa cabbage, mushrooms, wakame, leftover mushroom omelet, purple sweet potato. salt to taste.

Be safe, eat good.

The Cat didn’t bring lunch from home. A scheduling snafu at the office. The downstairs cafe.

Sandwich, Salad, Soup

The Mouse made “fast” congee, comfort food for The Cat’s stomach.

“Fast” Congee

Leftover rice, lotus seed, dried fava beans, roasted Brussels sprouts, canned bamboo shoot, wood-ear fungus, salt, and toasted sesame oil to finish. Mmm.

Be safe and well.

Quick Jook

Comfort food for The Cat. Nothing fancy, no recipe.

Pre-cooked rice, wakame seaweed, mustard green, salt, toasted sesame seed oil.

Quick Jook

Boil water, add rice. Turn off heat, let sit for fifteen-twenty minutes (allows rice to hydrate and absorb water). Bring jook to medium simmer, add mustard green, wakame, stir for a couple of minutes. Top with sesame oil to serve. Easy peasy.

Stay safe and well.
