Canned Peanuts

No, not the “dry roasted” variety, although The Mouse won’t turn them down, not his favorite. If he has a choice, The Mouse chooses boiled peanuts.

Been staring at this can of boiled peanuts anytime I make a Walmart run.

Can

The Mouse know how to cook boiled peanuts (especially with Chinese Five Spice, Yum!) but it’s time consuming.

Yesterday, finally gave in and bought a tin.

Inside

Dunno if factory cooks then cans or cooks in can but the peanuts are hard to access (shells are hard to open and peanuts don’t release easily. Taste is okay, salty. Overall impression = meh. But cheap and cuts out the work.

The Mouse thinks next time he craves boiled peanuts, he’ll make his own.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not chicken feet nor pig feet soup this week. The Mouse picked up a package of oxtail. A little on the pricey side, small package, “affordable”.

Oxtail

Enough for two bowls and leftover.

Just on the side, the label.

Label

Beef, Ox, is that like “Master Shifu”, JK. Hee hee.

Anyways, besides the usual suspects (ginger, whiskey, apple cider vinegar), The Mouse’s version of oxtail soup has to have certain other ingredients.

Star Anise

After overnight soft simmering, and a visit to the farmers market, the soup.

Braised Pork

You’ve seen it done here, at least a couple of times. One of our favorite ways.

This time, a little pork belly, a little pork loin (leaner), miso paste, and some little “extras”.

Lunch, bento, also from J-Shop (picked up at the same time).

Tonkatsu Bento

Sign in the shop said 90+ percent ingredients from Japan. Uhm okay. I guess my unsophisticated palate couldn’t tell the difference. I think for price consideration, I would go back to Kokoro-Tei instead. Try try though.

Dinner was kinda a rush (The Cat worked late).
