Waste not, want not. The leftover pork shank, and meat was used to its ultimate end.

Pork Shank Bowl

Rice, pork shank meat, kabocha. The extra Bulldog tonkatsu sauce kicked it up. The Mouse’s lunch. Mmm!

The Cat’s Bento

Rice, Brussels sprouts, pork shank meat, kabocha, roasted sweet potato. The bento container fully loaded.

Our server packed the bones separate. Good job!

Shank Bone

The Mouse simmered for hours with ginger and vinegar to make a broth.

Pork Shank Broth

Frozen vegetables and canned bamboo shoot to finish. The Cat was even able to dig out marrow from the bone. 🙂

Be safe and well. \ooo/

Chicken feet, washed.

The Start

Toenails cut off, washed, and parboiled.

Lots of Ginger

Slow simmered, dried dates, goji berries, carrot, vinegar, and pinch of salt.

The Mouse thought the flavoring was just a little sweet, The Cat slurped.


Be safe and well.

Not really The Beatles inspired. More digging through the kitchen.

Ginger, raw peanuts, canned cannellini beans, oatmeal, peanut powder, an egg, and salt to taste.

Throw everything together and pray for the best. 🙂

The Cat’s Soup/Stew

A sprinkle of paprika and chives for color. The Cat seemed to like.

The Mouse found a “remnant plate” at the supermarket.

Pastele “Mini Bento”

Scoop of rice, scoop of mashed potato with gravy, one pastele, $3.99. Good deal as the grocery deli was selling one pastele as a side for $3.99. Rare treat for The Mouse. 🙂

Be safe and well.

Soup and Pasta

The Cat’s lunch, she took a friend for his birthday.

Tomato Soup

Why does this picture remind me of the movie about the plant that ate people? Too weird? Hee hee.

Seafood Lasagnette

Deconstructed? The Cat’s first choice was seafood curry but was distracted by the pasta. Her conclusion was she should have stuck with the curry. Pasta wasn’t bad, just …

Be safe and well.

Hee hee.

The Mouse, kinda playing with his food. Made a broth/soup/stew from wood-ear fungus, canned shiitake mushrooms, wakame, dried shrimp, frozen soybeans, and sea salt. Poured the concoction over the leftover shrimp tempura.

The Mouse’s “Kraken Bowl”

Eat while watching 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, League of Extrodinary Gentlemen, Clash of Titans (the Sam Worthington version), or Aquaman. Hee hee.

Be safe and well.
