The Mouse’s lunch, yesterday.

Burdock Root, Okra, Cucumber Kimchi, Salt and Pepper Shrimp

Room in the refridge now. 🙂

The shrimp, leftover from The Cat’s dinner the other night.

Dinner, still more refridge and pantry clearing.

Apple, Pineapple, Mandarin Orange

Fruit! 🙂

Tuna Sandwich

Tuna from a packet, lemon and pepper, not bad.

Happy Friday!

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

Start with toasted whole wheat bread from JJ2 Bakery.

Toasted Whole Wheat Bread

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

Lastly, shiso leaf (from our outside bucket).


Tuna, tomato, and shiso leaf, the perfect combo for The Mouse’s tuna sandwich. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.

Don’t try looking for the definition, at least how I’m using it, I made it up. Be warned, this post may not be appropriate for those with squeamish stomachs. I was trying to figure out what I wanted for lunch. At first I was going to make a cold cut sandwich but the amount of salt in the packaged meat kind of put a damper on that idea.

Natto was an option, but I wanted something with a little more oomph to it (don;t ask me to explain “oomph”, I don’t even know). Searching through the pantry I found something that had potential. Did a quick search on the internet, found there’s a dish with the fresh raw ingredient and natto, called maguro natto but I couldn’t find a dish using the canned variety. You’ve probably already guessed where this is going.

Natto and Canned Tuna

Note: It’s probably close your eyes time (for those of you with a sensitive gag reflex).

Put them together, stir until squishy, add the package of mustard that came with the natto and a dash of soy sauce, and you get something I call …


Okay, you can open your eyes.

I must say (if I do say so myself), this was pretty tasty. Over a bowl of hot rice and it almost rivals a poke bowl (almost but not quite). Since this was the prototype, there are some adjustments I’d like to try the next time (yes, there will definitely be a next time), some shiso leaves and green onions should do the trick.

To butcher the Bard’s words “tunatto or not tunatto, what was the question”? Hee hee. 🙂

(The Cat called it sticky cat food). Sigh.

Running an errand today nearby here.


Good reviews on Yelp. Decided to check it out. Tried mayo-free tuna wrap, dunno why, must have been the medication. 😉

Mayo-Free Tuna Wrap

A Paradise smoothie for my drink.

Paradise Smoothie

The smoothie is made with pineapple, papaya, banana, & orange juice, and frozen yogurt, I requested no frozen yogurt.

The wrap was pretty tasty with some kind of pickled relish and toasted sesame oil (instead of mayonnaise). The wrap did get a little messy at the end, the oil started to soak through. I did kind of miss the mayonnaise texture. The smoothie tasted better than it looked. Hopefully I got a vitamin C boost.

A tasty and healthy lunch.

These packages of spicy sauce with kimchi and tuna were on sale at the Korean market the other day. Looked interesting so bought a package to try.

Spicy Sauce with Kimchi and Tuna

Back of Package, Instructions

I don’t read Korean, but my guess was that you either let the package sit in hot water for 3 minutes or pour the contents of the package out and microwave for 2 minutes.

I let the package sit in hot water for 3 minutes and poured the contents over freshly steamed brown rice.

Spicy Sauce with Kimchi and Tuna over Brown Rice

The actual contents did not quite look like the picture on the front of the box. The taste reminded me of canned sardines in hot sauce (posted previously). I would buy this again. Next time though I would add a fried egg and potato-macaroni salad.

The sauce would probably be good poured over steamed fish or fried chicken (just thinking aloud).
