Pickled and Fermented

Pickled eggplant, first time try for The Mouse


Japanese warehouse store.


In a miso, vinegar brine. Not too sour. The eggplant was firm! The Mouse thinks it was pickled raw. He thought it was gonna be soft. Interesting. He is going to try and bake/toast it today.

With the eggplant.

Natto over Rice

Except for the eggplant texture, a good meal. \ooo/

Enjoy. Eat well.

Weird, not weird, semantics.

The Mouse wanted some kick to the natto lunchtime. Only hot sauce in the warehouse kitchen was Tabasco, nope, not it, open box of package sriracha sauce, dunno if these were prospective samples or the warehouse actually sells, The Mouse “acquired” one for “testing” purposes.

Sriracha Packet

Not the “Rooster” brand “Eagle”.

The Mouse’s Natto Bento

This version of sriracha is not as “bright” spicy, The Mouse’s opinion, a “richer” spice profile. A warming spice, not an initial hit spice. The Mouse thinks he likes this one just a little better.

Dinner was a “what if” and compromise “chance’em” experience. Started with a MickyD basic burger, The Mouse wanted to add liver pâté and bacon, but neither in the near vicinity. So, The Mouse made do, peanut butter and sliced ham.

And shiso from the pot. And yes, The Mouse picked up a happy meal.

Have a great weekend.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mostly cleaning out the refridge and pantry, some samples from the warehouse.

The Mouse’s Mess

Side view.

The Layered Look

From the bottom up, leftover Kalua pork, cabbage, natto, canned spinach, dried radish kimchi, won bok kimchi, cucumber kimchi. The dried turnip kimchi was really good, if there is more in the refridge today, The Mouse is going after it. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Rhetorically, which would you choose? Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse didn’t plan it this way, but yesterday, The Mouse’s lunch looked like something that handlers might feed their charges at a zoo. Hee hee.

Okra and Mushrooms


Sardines and Natto


All Mixed Up

The Mouse thinks if he were a zoo resident, he would be pretty pleased with the meal. Hee hee.

Although, he probably should slow down watching those programs, who know what the next meal is gonna look like. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
