Not chicken feet nor pig feet soup this week. The Mouse picked up a package of oxtail. A little on the pricey side, small package, “affordable”.


Enough for two bowls and leftover.

Just on the side, the label.


Beef, Ox, is that like “Master Shifu”, JK. Hee hee.

Anyways, besides the usual suspects (ginger, whiskey, apple cider vinegar), The Mouse’s version of oxtail soup has to have certain other ingredients.

After overnight soft simmering, and a visit to the farmers market, the soup.

Oxtail Soups

Not The Mouse made. Cold weather. The Cat’s been ordering for lunch.

Bowl #1


Bowl #2

Both at Vietnamese pho restaurants. The Cat said both were not bad. A little on the thin side. Still good during cold weather. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Soup Weather

The Mouse wished he could make oxtail soup, but cost prohibitive. Substitute The Cat likes.

Chicken Feet

Ginger, wood ear fungus, dried mushroom, water, vinegar, whiskey. Low and slow.

Finished with turnip.

We haven’t gotten to the stock yet, but the feet went to The Cat’s bento.


Potato, sweet potato, mushrooms (all canned), chicken feet, turnip.

Happy lunar new year y’all. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat and The Mouse, still trying to get rid of cold.

The Mouse used up leftover in the refridge for The Cat’s bowl.

Kau Yuk Mustard Cabbage Soup Noodle

Kau yuk with taro, fresh mustard green, instant noodle without the soup packet. Slightly overcooked. The Cat said the overcooked is Shanghai style during the winter. How appropriate.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Soup for Breakfast

The Mouse finally got to the black-eyed pea soup (new year gift from Murphy’s).


Soup was hearty, filled with ham. Yum!

The Mouse added a crispy fried egg on top. The key is hot pan, oil, drop egg and turn off heat. Bottom will be crispy, white is cooked, yolk is slightly cooked but still runny. Nom!

Enjoy. Eat well.
