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.

Kentucky Shoyu?

“Gift” from a co-worker. Believe it or not, he is a bigger (both in stature and interest) “foodie” than The Mouse.

Flask

Here’s the write-up from the company: https://bourbonbarrelfoods.com/product/bluegrass-soy-sauce/

It’s gonna be interesting. Have to think of something “worthy” to use the soy sauce on. Dim sum? Sashimi? Sushi? Maybe a perfectly fried egg? Dunno. Decisions, decisions. Hee hee.

Mahalo to K for the gift.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Signature Recipe

Not The Mouse’s.

The Mouse’s father was not a wiz in the kitchen. He could boil water, fry eggs and SPAM, toast bread, cook rice. On days he had to cook, one of his go-to dishes turned out pretty good … to a kid at least.

The dish started with rice.

Today, The Mouse used microwavable rice.

So, here’s where The Mouse’s father takes over.

Hot Rice, a couple of Pats of Butter, Splash of Shoyu
