Pork Belly

Browned and braised little over 90 minutes with salt, liquid smoke, shoyu, sake, and whiskey.

Added turnip and braised for another hour or so.

Grocery shopping. The Cat returns tomorrow. The Mouse restocked the fresh fruits and vegetables. And picked up a little dinner.

Cheap Eats

Pastele stew, brown rice, steamed veggies, and corn. 🙂

Pastele stew, pork stew with olives and bell peppers. The Mouse likes the grocery store version, not as “intense” as other “authentic” versions. Sigh. The Mouse is just a wimp. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

One Pot


Pork Chop

Thought they’d be easier (and faster) to cook that pork belly.

Parboiled, washed, boned, cut into cubes. Washed pot.

Carrot, Okinawan Sweet Potato

Peeled and cut.

Hard Apple Cider


Himalayan Pink Salt

Picked up cheap at the neighborhood discounter store. I know, we currently have access to Kaua‘i sea salt, but, try try.

Brown pork, add small amount of water, drops of apple cider vinegar, braise, add carrots, add hard cider, add sweet potato, add salt. braise more, about an hour.
