Open-Faced

Doctor says The Mouse has to cut down (not eliminate) carbs. Less sandwiches (two slices of bread), more toast (one slice of bread.

Vegemite Toast with Margarine

Oh yeah, butter is kinda a “taboo” too. Still working out the Vegemite ratio, I may have gone a wee bit overboard on the picture above.

PB, J, &B Toast with Orange

Light dinner.

Tomorrow is the big crockpot vegetable ragu adventure, will let you know how it went.

Enjoy. Eat well.

No work ’till Monday, well, I do go into the marketing office to work about half-a-day, owner let’s do flexible hours, and it’s quieter on Saturdays.

"Hawaiian" Plate Lunch

“Hawaiian” Plate Lunch

From one of my favorite “hole in the walls”, Tsukenjo’s.

Lau lau (taro leaf bundle with pork and other goodies), roast pork with gravy, tossed salad, rice. 🙂 Wish they had poi and sweet potato, but for under 10 bucks? Not complaining. 🙂

After that food coma inducing “brunch”, dinner was lighter.

Fried Egg Sandwich

This and That

Or “dis and dat”.

Little tidbits, not really needing an individual post but still wanting to be included. 🙂

The Cat still playing with ground pork and salted duck egg. This time, adding a fresh chicken egg to the mix.

The Cat thought her bowl looked like some cats that have different colored eyes. Plus one eye is bigger than the other. I thought the bowl looked a little cartoony.

A blogger in Australia (http://yummylummy.com/) suggested raw onions and cheese to go with my newly acquired Vegemite. The cheese part didn’t quite appeal to me, but the raw onions, hmmm.

Lunch for today. Not bad, not bad at all. For obvious reasons, I had to eat this when The Cat wasn’t home. Next time, I’ll maybe try sweet onions.

Thanks for the suggestion GL.

Enjoy. Eat well.

I’m mostly curious about trying different foods. Can’t say 100 percent, I will not try balut, for example.

Been curious about spreads made from the residual yeast after brewing beer. My internet surfing turned up that it’s very popular in Australia. Seems like you either love or hate it, no in-between. Since I’ve gotten to like stink tofu, natto, and Chinese fermented soy paste, I thought I was up for the challenge.

Couldn’t find them here in the markets and wasn’t about to mail order for it.

One of The Cat’s client is from Australia, very warm couple. I was talking with them one day and saw an opportunity. Just asked them about the yeast spread and they offered to bring me some the next time they came over. Score!

They arrived this week and brought this …

Ohhh!

Ohhh!

Couldn’t wait to try it so put some on a plastic butter knife in The Cat’s office. Yum! Just my opinion, but there’s an umami thing going on with the Vegemite.

Per the couple’s (B&J) suggestion, Dinner was buttered whole wheat with a light smear of Vegemite.

Had to pair it with another product that became popular over here during WWII.

Sautéed Kale with SPAM

I just had to (both were awesome). 🙂

The Cat had other ideas and had her noodles with salted duck egg and mustard greens.

If you look very closely, you can see bits of the salted duck egg (it was shy during the taking of the picture).

This morning, I had to up my Vegemite experience and made an open-faced sandwich with whole wheat toast, a fried egg, seasoned with Vegemite.

Breakfast

Sorry, the plating was atrocious, but it tasted great.

Vegemite, my new favorite condiment. Thanks B & J. I can introduce you to preserved bean curd the next time you’re here. 🙂

I hear there’s something similar in England called Marmite. Bring it on, I’ll give it a whirl. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
