Sidetracked

But first, update on the pork foot soup.

Solidified Beautifully

Yesterday. First day of classes on campus. Cashiers have to operate their window constantly. As a show of “unity”, no one goes out for lunch. Office buys lunch in. The Mouse ordered vegetarian chili.

Office also brought in desserts and snacks (co-worker’s b-day).

Cake

And

Fruit

After eating the cake and fruit, The Mouse was too full for the chili. Took it home for dindin.

The Mouse’s Dinner Plate

Hollowed out baked potato (from Sunday’s lunch), filled with sun-dried tomato, the potato “inside”, topped with Zippy’s vegetarian chili. Nom! 🙂

Today is supposed to be more of the same, just no “free” lunch. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Leftovers

When The Mouse was younger, leftovers was not in the vocabulary nor a concept. Now that The Mouse is older (not necessarily wiser), leftovers are not only a practice, but a happy concept. Benefits include not having to prep and cook as often, and helps to keep the clothes from shrinking. Hee hee. Don’t get me wrong, I love prepping and cooking, just that right now there are a few personal structural issues that need to be addressed before The Mouse can go “full speed” in the kitchen.

Pizza

The Cat brought home, office lunch. The Mouse nibbled throughout the day.

Not really, planned to stop in to look for The Cat’s Valentine’s Day gift, part of it anyway. But, a food tour of Seoul was on the Travel Channel.

Saturday, for most of the day, freak shower and wind weather. First Korean grocery store in Kalihi didn’t have the item I was looking for. The branch near Ala Moana did. More on that next time.

Lunch was at the grocery store, it was already past lunch time.

Potato Pancakes

Sometimes, I like to see what’s on the clearance shelf at our local supermarket. Kind of like going to a garage sale. You never know. This past weekend, I bought one of these from the clearance shelf.

Potato Pancake Mix

Just to try. One summer, many many many moons ago (I was still in middle school), I took a summer cooking course. One of the dishes we made was potato pancakes. I liked it.

When I opened the package of pancake mix, it was all powder (I dunno what I was expecting, maybe dehydrated potato bits?). Hmm, no worries, easy fix, I grated a potato from the pantry, soaked in cold water, and added it to the mix.

Grated Potato

Making the mix couldn’t be easier. Beat on egg, add one cup of cold water, add mix (at this point, I also added the grated potato).

After that, just pan-fried them.

Potato Pancakes

I think mine were a little bigger than intended, local style. Not bad though, the fresh grated potato definitely added texture. Even The Cat liked it.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Last night we had a bit of difficulty finding dinner. First it was Chinese, then it was Japanese. But for various reasons, we couldn’t get a table. By this time, The Cat was meowing, hissing, and almost scratching for food. At the last-minute, I thought of here.

Sign

They’re supposed to have a good steamed pig feet dish, a stewed goat dish, and other delicacies. Unfortunately, we got in a few minutes after  their happy hour to take advantage of reduced prices. Sigh.

By this time, The Cat wanted something hot and soupy to settle her stomach. She ordered handmade noodles with potatoes and clams.

Hand Made Noodles with Potatoes and Clams

The combination sounds weird, but somehow, it works. The hot soup did it’s job.

I ordered the house combination plate.

Combination Plate

Bulgogi, chicken, and kalbi. Everything prepared very well. Both The Cat and The Mouse were happy and satisfied.

The restaurant also had some unusual banchanitems.

Steamed Egg Custard

Hot and Spicy Butterfish

Too many bones for The Mouse, The Cat didn’t mind.

I have to go back later for the steamed pig feet. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
