Posts Tagged ‘Turnip Greens’

The Mouse got a tour of the warehouses. Very excited. No pictures, proprietary purposes.

And the employee discounts, although there are a few restrictions, can be awesome.

The Mouse’s first purchase, almost two pounds of oxtail, for the weekend. The Mouse has to check later for pork cheeks and beef tongue. All the meat cuts that were price prohibitive as a non-employee.

Mouth watering in anticipation.

The Mouse’s take-out on the way home.

Turnip Greens and Bamboo

The Mouse is deciding between Western and Asian style oxtail stew. Decisions, decisions.

Enjoy. Eat well.

And pork! Finally!

Breakfast

“Nuked” frozen vegetables catsup (forgot that I ran out of vinaigrette). Didnʻt Prez Reagan say catsup was a vegetable? Hee hee.

Veggies (and sometimes fruit) in the morning, less guilt if the opportunity arises for indulging later in the day.

The draught ends.

Lunch

Picked up just before the kitchen switches to lunch. “Breakfast” sandwich with bacon, egg, and cheese, with a little substitution/modification.

Out with the cheese, in with the shiso

Because, dairy issues, ʻnuf said.

Dinner, more greens.

Turnip Tops

Both boiled and raw.

The Cat had a bowl of noodles and mustard greens with fried tofu.

The Catʻs Bowl

Just in case, tomorrowʻs schedule may be interrupted due to The Mouse getting a little (read minor, minimally invasive) structural repair done. Doc said I might be a little slow and clumsy for a day or so. We will see.

I know, the relatives that read this are probably thinking “since when is he not clumsy or slow”. Ugh!

Enjoy. Eat well.

More Poi

Yesterday, it was all about poi, for The Mouse anyway.

Campus cafe(teria) in hibernation, and now the drive in across the street took off for the holidays. Food pickings getting sparse, temporarily. A short hike to the nearest grocery store.

OMG! The poi was so fresh, it was sweet! Score! The poke was good too!

All Gone!

All Gone!

My only “complaint”, and it’s a minor one, the poi bowl had ridges on the bottom, hard to scoop all the poi out (I did think about licking, but … ).

Dinner, The Mouse finished the last of the sour poi with a tin of sardines.

Mmm!

Mmm!

You can kinda see the poi in the background.

The Cat also had a pretty good food day.

Ground Pork

No major soup this week. No chicken feet, pork hock, nor oink tail (aren’t you lucky). This week we thought we’d change it up with ground pork.

The Cat seasoned a package of ground pork.

Salt, sugar, ginger, green onions, splash of Shao Xing wine, shoyu, and sesame seed oil.

Pan fried the batch.

After cooked, the pork can be used as a base for stir-frys, steamed dishes, or quick soups.

Last night, chopped up turnip greens.

Enjoy. Eat well.
