The Mouse stopped by a different grocery store on the way back from getting his vaccination. Picked up a package of pork tongue (usually not found at the grocery stores he frequents).

The Mouse picked the smallest package, to experiment, went on the internet for tips (no pun intended). Hee hee.

Cut slits into the skin, boiled/simmered between 3 to 4 hours, removed from water, peeled skin (cooled but still warm), new water, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, star anise, ginger, whiskey, carrot, lots of tree ear fungus, simmered for another hour or so.

Braised pork tongue. The Cat liked. The Mouse thought about adding a small amount of miso but was afraid the taste would be too strong.

Stay safe and well.

Dinner at The Cat and The Mouse’s favorite place, friend’s birthday.


Abalone Soup

Split pea. Inventive chef.


Iced Seafood

Lobster, sashimi, poke, etc. oh my! Nom!



The Cat and guest had Caesar, Chef changed up The Mouse’s dressing to a red wine blend because of The Mouse’s dairy issue. The Mouse did get anchovies. 🙂


Portabello Mushroom Crusted Salmon

Balsamic vinegar glaze, tomato coulis, fiddle head fern, oven roasted tomato. The salmon soft like buttah. Mmm.


Meyer’s Lemon Sorbet


Snake River Farm Kurobuta Pork

Truffle madeira sauce, haricot vert beans, mushrooms. One of the best pork dishes outside of pork belly The Mouse experienced. Mmm!


Fresh Strawberry Jello with Fresh Mint and Gelato

The chef explained to us his fruit extraction machine that steams the fruit and extracts pure juice. He hauled it from Germany a long time ago. The Mouse wonder if the machine could work on mango. Hee hee.

Chef usually makes epic chef’s choice meals but this one was Tolkien epic. Thank Chef H!

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.

The Cat’s lunch.

Pork Chop

The Mouse posted about this dish before. The Cat seems to order this dish (from the Irish pub) quite often.

What The Mouse did with the leftover.

Pork Sandwich

Thinly sliced the chop (a quick trip to the toaster, just to warm), yellow mustard (underneath the pork), cranberry apple chutney.


Mmm. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

The Mouse

p.s. The Mouse got his first of two vaccines against the thing that cannot be named, slightly out of it. Ugh.
