“Thing” Soup

Okay, The Mouse will be carbon dating himself, but anyone remember The Addams Family TV show (not the movies)? The Mouse used to watch it all the time (and not in reruns or syndication (see carbon dating).

And one of the “characters” was a disembodied hand Thing?

Anywho, The Cat and The Mouse found a small batch of chicken feet at the market this weekend, and we didn’t have to cross the mountain to find it. Woohoo!

The chicken feet kinda reminded me in a weird way of Thing. Jus’ thinking. Hee hee. (Sorry Morticia, Gomez, and Wednesday)

Chicken Feet

The Cat even helped trim the toenails off the feet.

Nothing fancy, water, apple cider vinegar, feet, whiskey. Low and slow simmer.

Separated the feet and soup/broth for storage. Some of the feet went to The Cat’s bento, some feet, with soup makes The Cat’s soup noodle bowl.

Soup Noodle Bowl

Wakame, celery, soba noodles, chicken feet and broth, splash of apple whiskey and toasted sesame oil, and sprinkle of Kaua‘i salt.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat’s No Recipe

The Cat had a self-improvement class after work, came home later than usual, didn’t want her normal soup noodle bowl.

The Cat made her own soup.





Potato Tomato Soup

She read somewhere this is a healthy food combination.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Nothing much happening food-wise with The Mouse. Campus still closing its accounting books. Kinda chained to the desk right now. 😦

Canned or frozen vegetables and Vegemite toast is The Mouse’s working diet for now.

The Cat has a little more “eats” to show.

Soup & Sandwich

House roasted turkey and Swiss cheese on whole wheat bread, served with cranberry ginger chutney. Split pea soup.

Honolulu Museum of Art Café + Coffee Bar. Funny, The Cat became a member of the museum mostly to get a discount on the food. Hee hee.

And no, The Mouse has not eaten at the museum yet. Hint hint.

Mouse made (read assembled) bento for The Cat.


Trader Joe’s rice blend, soy beans, corn, Okinawan sweet potato, purple turnip (Prince would be proud), grilled chicken, roast duck, eggplant parmesan. Mostly leftovers from all over. 🙂

Okay, back to the chain gang for The Mouse. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Soup-ed Up

This week’s soup. Still pork foot (the other half from last week).

Pork Foot Bone

Instead of the usual “just broth” (bone, liquor, vinegar), The Mouse decided to add a few more ingredients .

Dried Mushrooms and Wood Ear Fungus

Soaked overnight.

Low and slow for about seven hours.

Pork Foot – Cooked

Falling off the bone. 🙂


Because of the mushrooms and fungus, this week’s broth is more “welcome to the dark side”. Hee hee.

The Cat’s Bowl of Noodles in Pork Foot Soup

Celery, soy beans, fried tofu, soba noodles. Slurp.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Lucky Cat

Neighborhood grocery store had three pork feet on Saturday. The Mouse bought one. Store used to carry feet more often, but because of lack of demand, cut back the stock. Sigh. But, at least they carry sometimes.

Pork Foot

Also bought squash at the farmers market.


Not sure of the name, we call it “long squash”.

Normal soup treatment. Wash, par boil, wash, fresh water, ginger, liquor, simmer for hours.

The Cat’s Soup Noodle Bowl

Hot soba noodles in pork broth with squash, soy beans, seaweed, and lotus root. The Cat slurped.

Enjoy. Eat well.
