A Quickie

Both in soup and post.

No time for a “cook all day” foot soup (chicken nor pork). Picked up a package of pork ribs.

Pork Ribs

Same process, par-boil, wash, fresh water, low and slow. But instead of four or five plus hours simmering, two hours. The result does not yield collagen-rich soup, more like a light broth, no gelling. Last 45 minutes to an hour, threw in a diced turnip.

For The Cat’s bowl, noodles, dried seaweed, canned corn, pork broth, rib, and turnip.

A quickie.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sorry, Late

Ran an errand to the pharmacy. Donʻt ever get old, parts start to fall apart and fail. Yuck.

Anyway, a quick clean of the refridge.

Bone Broth Noodle Soup with Soybeans and White Stemmed Cabbage

The Catʻs bowl. The broth came out of the freezer. Forgot even what kind of broth it was. No matter. Collagen is collagen. The Cat didnʻt mind.

Refridge is cleanest (relatively) itʻs been for awhile.

So, how was your May 4th? Tomorrow is supposed to be “Revenge of the 5th”? IDK. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

B-day for one of Chef P’s former servers, K, hosted by his partner B. Also found out one of K’s current co-workers, N, also her b-day last night.

The place.

Kinda in an out of the way strip mall. Decent parking. Four and a half stars on Yelp.

First time for The Cat and The Mouse. Other guests seem to be “regulars”. We defer to their favorites.

Starters.

The pho soup was highly recommended. Being that The Cat has a less than enthusiastic preference to beef in general but still wanted to try the soup (beef based), she went with the not so red meat selection. Was that confusing?

The Mouse, on another recommendation by the “regulars” ordered …

Oxtail Soup

Oxtail Soup

Vietnamese style, very good, Meat almost falling off the bone. Different from the olde skool local kine with lots of peanuts, star anise, and mustard cabbage, but still tasty.

On the menu, the soup comes with rice, but the regulars suggested noodles, thought the noodles would be in the soup, but it was served separately.

In more Oxtail broth

Mmm! One full and contented mouse (cat too).

Just when we thought the foodfest was ending, out comes dessert.

Tapioca with Taro

Not bad, not too sweet, a bit heavy in the tummy tho’.

And since there were four people with January birthdays …

Cake!

Cake!

Not four layers, but close enough. 🙂

So, H-B to K, N, P, and ???!

Oh, and an update on the pork belly.

Miso/Sake Braised Pork Belly

Miso/Sake Braised Pork Belly

Refrigerated overnight to let the flavors soak in. It’s gonna be good. except package The Cat picked was a little on the lean side. Oh well, we will have to wait and see.

I did make up two snack sized bento boxes for the smoked meat vendors today. Last week they discounted our purchase. Just a little show of appreciation. Ancient grains, sesame oil turnip, and the pork belly (forgot to take a picture of the bento).

Heading out to a wine bar for B-day dinner #2, it’s Chef P’s turn.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Not much happening between holidays. Just regular stuff.

Breakfast

Breakfast

Snowball cookies (from one of The Cat’s clients) and dried plums. The Cat wasn’t too fond of the cookies, too “spicy” (cinnamon and nutmeg) for her.

Lunch

Lunch

Cold cut sandwich on pumpkin bread (from Brug Bakery), raw celery (olive oil and salt), raw sliced turnip (shoyu).

Dinner

Dinner

Sautéed turnip, turnip greens, and celery with shoyu.

The Cat's Bowl

The Cat’s Bowl

Chicken feet soup noodle with turnip and greens.

This batch was pretty epic. Two packages of chicken feet (I usually use one). The soup gelled so solid, I’m thinking of writing to Jell-O with suggestion of a new flavor (chicken feet) with feet. Do you think it would sell? Hee hee!

Enjoy. Eat well.
