Posts Tagged ‘mushrooms’

This past weekend, an impromptu thingy.

Kinda through together stuff, simple, no fuss.

Braised Mushrooms

Button (both fresh and tinned) and enoki mushrooms braised in coconut oil.

Sweet Potato in Coconut Milk

Do you suspect a theme going on here? Hee hee.

Took some of the leftover potato to a co-worker the next day, according to the co-worker, K,  The Mouse riffed on a Hawaiian dish, koele palau.

The “normal” method is to mash the sweet potato and incorporate the coconut milk into the mash like adding cream or milk to mashed potato. The Mouse’s version is a little more … “chunky”?

Hee hee.

The Mouse just didn’t do the mash step.

Sweet Potato in Coconut Milk on Microwave Frozen Spinach

The Mouse is toying with adding luau (kalo/taro) leaves to the pot next time. The spinach was an “experiment” to test the viability of the combination. The dish sorta worked, The Mouse is on the fence with this riff.

Have another potluck event coming this Friday. Heading to the market for inspiration, fingers crossed.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Nutin’ fancy, no caviar, no wine, etc. It’s The Cat’s busy season. V-Day dinner is postponed.

The Mouse did a little more eating than usual tho’.

It kinda started the day before, students were having a bake sale on campus for one of their endeavors.

The Mouse picked up a treat.

After all that eating, The Mouse ate “light”.

Maple Bacon Donut

Maple Bacon Donut

The Mouse had stopped in at Donut King in the morning to pick up donut holes for the office, and since he was there … Hee hee.

Didn’t get a chance to eat it during the day. Brought it home for “dinner”. “Life’s too short, eat dessert first”. 🙂

The Cat wanted something warm, squishy, and soupy.

The Cat's Boiled Dinner

To me, perfectly normal. And really, that’s all that matters. Hee hee. The eating day started here.

Leftover Roasted Mushrooms and Pita Slices

Leftover Roasted Mushrooms and Pita Slices

From Saturday dinner. The mushrooms were seasoned just a little toooooo vinegar-y for our taste, not to worry, I have a plan. Heh heh. The pita didn’t quite fit the dish “profile” (just my opinion), I would have liked a softer and spongier bread to sop up the sauce. So The Mouse “improvised”. Picked up this on the way to work.

Scrambled Eggs and Nishime (Japanese Vegetable Stew)

Scrambled Eggs and Nishime (Japanese Vegetable Stew)

You may not think the two things go together, but in my mind, they do. Perfect with the pita (tossed in the toaster for just a couple of minutes to crisp up).

The mushrooms were saved for lunch. From one of my favorite “mom & pop” take-outs around the office.

Roast Pork with Gravy (Mini)

Roast Pork with Gravy (Mini)

The vinegar-y mushrooms cut through the savoriness of the pork and gravy. Big yum! 🙂

And because it was a mini, did not slide into food coma in the afternoon (although the mini was still substantial, just not food coma substantial).

The Cat has out of state visitors tomorrow, heading to Ocean House for the killer sunsets for dinner (that’s the plan anyway). Stay tuned.

Enjoy. Eat well.
