BOGO :)

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 Ragoût with Celery, Tomato, Smoked Pork

Not really ragoût, kinda a hybrid sauté, braise, ragoût method. Worked for The Mouse. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Randomness

Not too much happening in the kitchen this week, for a variety of reasons.

BBQ Tofu

From the campus grab-n-go shop. Not bad, I think the tofu was baked. Too bad they didnʻt put a little char on it. I know the kogi bit wouldʻve brought out flavor and texture.

Tomato and Egg

For The Catʻs lunch. Still trying to perfect the dish. Might take a lifetime.

Tomato and Triscuits

A dab of butter and a touch of Vegemite. See told ya not much happening in the kitchen.

Oh well.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Practice … Practice …

This week’s tomato and eggs trial.

Tomato and Eggs

Tomato and Eggs

Much more normal than some previous trials (and errors). This time drained some of the tomato liquid during cooking. The eggs were hybrid between Chef Gordon Ramsey style and Chinese style. Seasoning of coconut milk (just a teaspoon or so), salt, pepper, sugar, whiskey, and a drop of shoyu.

At least the dish is looking more “restaurant” like, not sooooo soupy.

Haven’t tasted yet. Cooked more for The Cat’s lunch for tomorrow and Tuesday.

Just a quickie for now.

Enjoy. Eat well.

A spontaneous “eat out” suggestion by The Cat. Just made it to one of our current favorite neighborhood spots, Zia’s (on the dot). Server could have said we were too late (wouldn’t have faulted her, traffic was terrible), but she gave us a ten-minute window to order past the happy hour close (extra tip).

In the rush, The Cat ordered the appetizer.

Prosciutto Wrapped Melon w/ Honey Balsamic Glaze

Prosciutto Wrapped Melon w/ Honey Balsamic Glaze

The Cat not used to fruit and cured meat together. Not her palate. That’s okay, The Mouse deconstructed it, ate the fruit for dessert, took the Prosciutto for lunch. Win-win.

Since no time to prep The Cat’s lunch, ordered a little bit more for planned leftovers.

Tomato, Basil Soup

Tomato, Basil Soup

Happy hour price, $1.00 for a cup!

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Mixed greens, bleu cheese, pear, mac-nuts, red onion, red wine vinaigrette.

Penne Primavera

Penne Primavera

Zucchini, mushrooms, beets, bell pepper, sun-dried tomato pesto.

The Mouse’s, see, still on track with the “eat more veggies” goal. 🙂

The dishes with the goal of taking home for The Cat’s lunch.

"Chef's Vegetables"

“Chef’s Vegetables”

And.

Mushroom Risotto

At the end, I think we saved at least $6.00 at happy hour prices. Good deal!

One more day until the weekend, woo hoo!

Enjoy. Eat well.
