No, not a small kid, and not a potato. Hee hee.

Toaster oven tomatoes. The Mouse’s new favorite way to eat tomato.

Happened kinda by accident. A container of grape tomatoes going slightly wrinkled.

Grape Tomatoes, Slightly Wrinkled

Not the greatest for salad. What to do?

Avocado oil, salt, pepper, 300 degrees, 30 minutes, toaster oven.


I know, done before, but first time for The Mouse. The Mouse liked. Hee hee.

Tried it again the next night, regular tomato.

The Mouse’s Plate

TOT, laulau, shiso leaf, apple banana. Sorry, no聽plating presentation, popped the whole plate into the toaster oven to roast the tomato and warm the laulau (from the grocery store). Still yum. 馃檪

I know, The Mouse eats weird, but it’s The Mouse’s plate. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Mouse’s “home lunch” at the office.

Start with toasted whole wheat bread from JJ2 Bakery.

Add half a can of tuna (from last聽night’s dindin), mixed with mayo, and freshly sliced tomato (we had Roma in the refridge).

Lastly, shiso leaf (from our outside bucket).

Enjoy. Eat well.

Jus’ a few things.

Bamboo Shoot in Chili Oil

The Cat likes as a garnish to聽her soup noodle bowl. Should’ve been a panda. Hee hee.

Fried Chili in Oil

Try try. Not sure where this condiment falls on the Scoville聽scale, it’s not supposed to be too hot. We’ll see, cross your fingers.

One review thinks this is the next Sriracha sauce.

Apple Vinegar

Made in Taiwan. Not apple cider. Store owner said it’s sweeter than apples cider vinegar. Good to drink, vegetable and fruit salads.

Tried it on an avocado, tomato, sweet onion salad last night.

Avocado, Tomato, Sweet Onion Salad

Very yum! No oil, the avocado provided enough fat, just a sprinkle of Kaua鈥榠 salt to finish. A good try try. 馃檪

Enjoy. Eat well.

So far, Burger King, Jack in the Box, and Panda Express has various incentives to participate in their customer surveys. Being pake, try to participate as often as possible.

Burger King and Jack in the Box places time limits on answering the survey and using the perk. Sigh.

Used a “Jack’s” one last night.

Jumbo Jacks

Buy one, get one free. Hee hee!

Jumbo Jack, Tomato, Shiso

So, The Mouse not too fond of lettuce on his burgers, tends to slide around and make holding the burger a challenge.

Chopped lettuce is more logical to The Mouse than whole leaves. Same with sliced onions, chopped is okay, sliced, not so much.

Plus, The Mouse likes lots of tomato on his burgers/sandwiches. So, a little modification.

Burger, Mouse Style

Tomato, thinly sliced, sprinkled with salt and pepper, shiso, when available. Yum!

Oh, the “get one free” burger? Went into the refridge for tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.

The Cat came home with a package of fresh okra. The Cat is not so fond of okra, but The Mouse is. Although, The Mouse is more used to working with the frozen variety.

Decided to combine the okra with a week end semi clean out of the refridge.

In the Sink

Okra, celery, tomato.

Sliced all somewhat thin (the okra seeds kept falling out). Into a pan with a bit of smoked pork (also thinly sliced), and water (the okra started to stick to the pot).

Okra Rago没t with Celery, Tomato, Smoked Pork

Not really rago没t, kinda a hybrid saut茅, braise,聽rago没t method. Worked for The Mouse. 馃檪

Enjoy. Eat well.
