One-Pot

No pig feet, no chicken feet this week. Something easy-peasy.

Ground Pork

Browned and set aside. A light sprinkle of salt.

Mushrooms

Stir-fried until moisture starts to come out.

Combine with ground pork and some celery (for texture).

Ground Pork, Mushroom, and Celery Hash?

Seasoned with salt, pepper, brown sugar, and shoyu.

Good on rice or noodles.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Mistrial

Through no fault of the jury, judge declared a mistrial. After nine days in the jury box and eleven days total? Are you kidding me? One of the jurist said it’s like watching a movie and the last reel is missing.

At least life can get back to some normalcy.

The food today.

Chopped Steak, SPAM Musubi, Glazed Croissant

Chopped Steak, SPAM Musubi, Glazed Croissant

Lunch, breakfast, and office goodie. Chopped steak, I think a local concoction. Thinly sliced beef, green bell peppers, onions, celery, and carrots (all the veggies The Cat is not thrilled about, except the celery), stir-fried together with a shoyu/sugar sauce … mmm.

Getting late, sleepy time. Zzzzzz

Enjoy. Eat well.

Still on jury duty. Sigh. Maybe that’s why I feel the urge to chop vegetables, not in a Hannibal Lecter sort of way, more of a Martin Yan sort of way. Guess it’s become one of the ways for The Mouse to relax.

First time trying this.

Teriyaki SPAM!

Teriyaki SPAM!

Not just any type of SPAM, but teriyaki SPAM! Anticipating drool!

The Beast

The Beast

Darker than the regular variety (must be the teriyaki flavoring). We usually use the reduced fat and sodium variety, so I dare not use this in a sandwich. Probably use sparingly.

Sliced thin …

Sliced

Sliced

Used two slices and further cut them into “matchstick” size.

Potato, Onion, Celery, Chinese White Stemmed Cabbage

Potato, Onion, Celery, Chinese White Stemmed Cabbage

Cut everything else into “matchsticks”, pan-fried the potato first to brown. Threw everything else in and …

SPAM Chop Suey

SPAM Chop Suey

Voilà! Seasoned with a tiny bit of sea salt and turbinado sugar, and a dash of rum. The Cat liked (she ate around the onions), The Mouse unstressed. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Walking through Marukai (2310 Kamehameha Highway) the other day, noticed mizuna. Since it was after new years, price was cheap. I knew I could throw it soup, such as Japanese new year soup, ozoni, but what else could I use it for? Did a quick search on my smart phone, I could also do stir-fry, but had to buy quite a bit since they shrink considerably. Picked up almost three pounds for a little over two dollars.

Soaked them in cold water to freshen them up (my bad, not the store’s fault).

Mizuna

I thought the stems might be a little tough for The Cat, ate them for lunch.

Stir-fried the leaves. They did shrink a lot!

Stir-Fried Mizuna

Stir-fried them in pork fat, olive oil, and Kauai sea salt. I liked them a lot. Has a slight mustard cabbage taste. I will definitely use this again.

Enjoy.
