Also known as wasting not, or leftovers. Hee hee.

Rice, roasted sweet potato, remainder of The Mouse’s Bahn Mi Bowl from CPK, fried egg.

The Cat’s Jook

Jook topped with the remainder lettuce wrap filling (CPK), the lettuce (chopped), and pickled mustard cabbage (Ramen Manichi). Mmm.

The Mouse learned something new. Slicing onions from shoot to root (north to south) is less tearful than slicing east to west.

The Mouse sliced half an onion, little to none eye irratation.

Sliced Onions

The Mouse sautéed the onion with the last of the leftover bacon steak.

Bacon and Onion on Pita

A drizzle of yellow mustard. Mmm.

If The Mouse had planned better, he would have sprinkled a little bit of instant coffee while sautéing. The Mouse loves the combination of bacon and coffee.

So, this method only works with sliced onions. If dicing or garnishing sandwiches or burgers? All bets are off. 😦

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse, reducing the number of containers in the refridge by three. 🙂

He started with a pita round.


Slightly toasted.

Added leftover baked beans and sweet potato (containers #1 and #2).

Layer #1

Added leftover kalua pork and smoked pork belly (container #3).

Layer #3

Into the toaster oven to heat.

A couple of dashes of chipotle sauce on the top to finish.

The Mouse said Mmm (he ate it), The Cat said Eww. Hee hee.

While The Mouse agrees with The Cat that the dish did not look pretty, the taste was awesome. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
