Rice and Pickled Vegetable

Okay, enough teasing, on to “food porn”.

The perfect combination. Need a minute of alone time. Hee hee.

Got Aloe?

Why yes we do.

Aloe Plants

What started out as a small pot has proliferated into somewhat out of control growth. We have to find a solution.

Recently read the aloe “meat” is edible. Smoothies I knew, but not blended? Interesting. Hmm, maybe part of the solution?

Youtube to get a clue of the prep process.

Aloe Leaf

Cut off pokey spikes, cut off outer skin, slice. Sounds easier than actual. Soooo slippery, kinda scary with the knife.

Figured out that instead of using the knife to take off all of the skin, cut three sides (two pokey ends and “curved” side, butter knife to “filet” the “meat” off of the “flat” side. Still slippery, but not as scary.

Aloe Filet

Managed to “filet” about half a cup. Half went into The Cat’s soup noodle bowl, half went to The Mouse’s salad.

Tomato Celery Aloe Salad

Dressed with apple vinegar, avocado oil, sea salt. Hard to see but the aloe is on top. Texture like young coconut or Chinese jellyfish. Try try.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Pig Foot Soup Update

Season being summer, The Mouse didn’t want to make a “heavy” soup/broth. Used only half of the pork foot (froze the other half). Didn’t think the broth would jell. But it did! Yay!

Sorry picture not too appetizing, in real life, exciting. Hee.

Consistency is not “glue your lips together” sticky, just a light sticky. Hee hee.

Remember this bottle?

Bluegrass Soy Sauce

From the food enthusiast co-worker. Finally found something to try it on.

Avocado!

The soy sauce (shoyu in SPAM Land) has a softer taste, not as much fermented/umami taste, different but good. At least on The Mouse’s tongue. Mahalo Keawe!

Pahole (Warabi) and Tomato Salad

Tossed with just Kaua‘i salt.

That’s it for now. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Egg McMuffin from Micky D

Shiso from our bucket. The Mouse thinks all (okay, most) sandwiches should come with a shiso option. Hee hee.

Ready to Nom

Ran an errand to Michael Mina’s “food court” concept at International Marketplace at Waikiki (same complex as Yauatcha), The Street. Chef Mina carries Chef’s chocolates (at “The Chocolate Bar”, cute ya?) and The Mouse wanted to check it out.

Location

Impressive. What an opportunity for the Chef.

Display

Like jewelry. Hee hee.

Box

Dark chocolate “lava rocks” (mac nut “bon bons”). Simply boxed and ribboned. The Cat and The Mouse likes the presentation even though they are still trying to work out some of the kinks.

Gift Bag

Again, very subtle.

Fun fact, The Mouse was their first customer … ever! 🙂

On the way back, drive-thru, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, ran out of chicken sandwich (What!??) Ordered a fish sandwich.

Fish Sandwich

Not bad, pretty good actually, especially if compared with Micky D “Filet-o-Fish”. At least Popeye’s has a bit of green. Sure wish I had the foresight to bring more shiso.

Of course, can’t go to Popeye’s without a side order of red beans and rice.

Red Beans and Rice

Now, The Mouse has never experienced “authentic” red beans and rice, but for what it is (fast food), The Mouse likes Popeye’s.

Funny, The Cat also went (separately) to The Street to check it out, missed each other by an hour.

Flatbread

 

Salad

With decent parking at somewhat reasonable prices (with minimum purchase), seems like The Cat and The Mouse will be doing more exploring of the new International Marketplace, even though it’s in Waikiki.

Last snippet.

Breakfast yesterday.

Zippy’s Breakfast Bento #1

Corned beef hash, SPAM, scrambled eggs, rice. Should’ve ordered brown rice, too early, couldn’t think, before coffee. Corned beef nicely “charred” with kogi bits. Ate the rice and corned beef hash, saved the SPAM and eggs for lunch.

SPAM and Egg Sandwich

Two slices of whole wheat bread at the office, slightly toasted, SPAM, eggs, packet mayo. Not bad for unscheduled, impromptu sandwich. Missing that shiso again.

As mentioned in the previous almost not posted post (clearly operator error), gonna be a late one tonight.

Enjoy. Eat well.
