More boar than hog? Hee hee!


Crispy Brussels Sprouts

One of the better preparations. The Cat and The Mouse liked. 🙂


The Cat had a glass.

Mongolian BBQ Back Ribs

Mmm delicious.

Grilled Pork Bao Buns

The pork belly had a good balance of meat and fat, the pickled vegetables were yummy. The Mouse felt the texture of the buns was too dense, not pillowy fluffy enough. Maybe kitchen needs to find a Chinese manapua master. Hee hee.

Sauteed Hamachi

Not bad.

Pineapple Skillet

Maple rum sauce, oat crumble, coconut milk sorbet. All non-dairy. The Mouse was happy. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Drive-in take-out. Mmm.

Dinner and two bento. Good deal.

Vegetable Soup

Soup for The Cat.

Wakame, frozen cauliflower and mixed vegetables, sea salt, toasted sesame oil, lots of steam. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The Mouse eats.


Mixed Rice

Leftover pasteles stew with rice. The Mouse added frozen vegetables for “balance”. Hee hee.

Lunch was not pork, in fact no meat. I know. Weird yeah?


Orange, prunes, grapes.

Miso Soup

Dinner, more pork.

Lechon Kawali

The Mouse also picked up from the grocery store “Japanese Potato Salad”. Large chunks of potato mixed with Japanese pickles (namasu) and mayo. Clearance item.

Japanese Potato Salad

The Mouse likes the clearance section at the grocery store, chance to try something different with less buyer’s remorse. Or a good deal on favorites. Must have Forrest Gump chocolate box mindset. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.

The last Costco run, The Cat bought a package of prunes. The package sat in the pantry. The Mouse has been nibbling, but not a favorite.

The Mouse looked for a recipe that would incorporate pork and prunes. Found one.

The Mouse took a piece of pork rib, five or six prunes, enough water to braise. Added ginger and coconut vinegar (whatever was in the pantry). One wood-ear fungus, rehydrated, boiled, sliced into strips.

Before serving, added head cabbage. A German chef once told The Mouse that pork, cabbage and vinegar works well.

Vinegar Braised Pork and Prunes with Cabbage

Pic taken through steam. The Cat liked. Chinese/German-inspired (vinegar braised pig feet: thanks Yummy Lummy for the reminder: https://yummylummy.com/2022/05/05/pig-trotters-vinegar-and-ginger/ and German pork and red cabbage).

Be safe and well.

Okinawan restaurant, comfort food.

Japanese Eggplant with Shoyu Pork
Sliced Pork with Bitter Melon and Tofu

The restaurant makes a coffee gelatin, one of The Mouse’s favorites. And it is non-dairy, whoo! Whipped cream can be added on request.

Coffee Gelatin

Just the right amount of sweet mixed with coffee. 🙂

Be safe and well.
