Cooking Again, Somewhat

The Mouse finally feeling he can cook again. His joints were kinda not cooperating for awhile. Even with the meds, pain was irritating. Guess the meds took a bit to take effect.

For The Mouse anyway. Doctor has “limited” The Mouse’s mayonnaise intake. Sigh, oh well, probably better for The Mouse anyway. But what to substitute (you know it’s coming, hee hee).

Mac salad (with lots of mayonnaise) has been a big part of The Mouse’s eating norm for a long time. Part of the SPAM Land culture of plate lunches, so taking away the mac salad is kinda traumatic.

A worthy substitute.

Kalua Pork Plate, All Rice, and Natto

The natto provides a similar mouth feel, at least to The Mouse (plus The Mouse loves natto), and the mustard / shoyu mix to the natto is tasty. πŸ™‚

Ham Omelet and Natto with Rice

Nom! Dare The Mouse say it, natto maybe even better than mac salad. Oh the scandal. Whoo! Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
